Messenger Editor Tami Scott recently met with Lysander Supervisor John Salisbury and Deputy Supervisor Melinda Shimer to talk about current events within the town. The following questions focus on such projects as the sale of the Lysander Ice Rink, an upcoming truck purchase in the highway department and the next step in the construction of a community residence for boys on Doyle Road.
Paulette bounced up behind Frankie digging fingers into both sides of his ribs. He nearly cleared the jewelry counter at the discount department store. Good thing nobody was waiting on him, she’d a freaked them out too.
“Dad,” Frankie whispered out of the corner of his mouth. “Dad,” a little more insistent. “DAD,” he nearly shouted as he tugged at his father’s shirt. “Yeah, yeah, what?” Dad turned his attention from the wall of fishing lures lined in neat rows. “Those people are buying some of my worms!” His voice was down to a whisper again, but still very excited.
To the editor: Town of DeWitt residents will be voting on Sept. 23 on a referendum to change the town clerk position from elected to an appointed political patronage position.
The Fenner Town Board had a short meeting last week, in which they discussed necessary changes to the town to conform to the Americans with Disabilities Act and a recent increase in illegal dumping.
Public comments on the proposed Village Gateway West zone have resulted in a much clearer and better law, now incorporating changes which attempt to alleviate many of the concerns that have been expressed — including noise, parking, protection of the lake, construction of new buildings, expansion of existing buildings and protection of historic character. I encourage everyone to take a look at the most recent draft on the village website.
During the second week of this month the Café at 407 at Ophelia’s Place was closed in order to install new state-of-the-art stoves and ovens. The popular coffee shop re-opened Aug. 11. The café is located at 407 Tulip St., in the village of Liverpool.
Forty-nine bikes with 93 Patriot Guard Riders toured the village streets of Baldwinsville Aug. 9 during a 60-mile memorial bike run for their friend, Douglas Michael West (known as Mike/Mohawk). West died last year on May 29 in a bike accident. Saturday would have been his 60th birthday.
The village will conduct a public input session as part of the planning process for the Creekside Planned Development District at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 26, at the village offices, located at 90 Albany St.
Blues guitarist Lazer Lloyd will perform an intimate solo concert on Monday, Aug. 25 to focus on healing and inspiration for Israel, as part of a special dinner and music event at the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse, 5655 Thompson Rd., DeWitt. The RSVP-only event will begin with a kosher meal at 5 p.m. and Lloyd will perform at 5:30 p.m. Seating will start promptly at 4:45 p.m.
At a recent political breakfast, federal, state and county candidates gathered together with members of the Manlius Chamber of Commerce to discuss the issue of small business, mingle with voters and try to gain more votes through an under-three-minute speech.
By all accounts, the Gus Macker event held Aug. 8 and 9 at Drivers Village was a huge success. It was the fifth year of what has become an annual event. It was well-organized and events proceeded like clockwork. There were 178 basketball teams that participated, many travelling from distant communities like Buffalo, the Southern Tier and the North Country.
Well, we just wrapped up our fifth year of the Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament held at Drivers Village, and what a weekend it was. The weather cooperated beautifully and that provided us with extremely large crowds which included at times three generations of family members. We also maintained a quality event for the 178 four-person teams that registered to participate. Our volunteers, 145 strong, the backbone of this event, put in almost 1,500 hours. These highly enthusiastic volunteers allow us to continue the Friends of the CanTeen’s ultimate mission of raising much needed funds to operate the CanTeen teen center.
A new race is in the works and set to be held in the town of Lysander. “The E-Race Cancer Half Marathon and 5K started out as a desire to tie a running event into the Lysander Fall Festravaganza, set for the second Sunday in September,” said co-organizer Michelle Samoraj. “Saturday, the day prior to the Fall Festravaganza (Sept. 13), seemed like the perfect day to hold Baldwinsville’s only half marathon and 5K running event.”
