Giving credit where credit is due, historically speaking

— Mills has alerted County Parks about the incorrect information on its historical markers, but so far county officials have turned a deaf ear to her advice.

Cozy at The Cobblestone

Just in time for the oncoming onslaught of wind and snow, the outdoor deck at the historic Cobblestone Tavern will soon be enclosed by weatherproof windows.

Cobblestone owner John Gormel – the man with the mile-wide smile – discussed his window-pane project with the village planning board at its Oct. 22 meeting.

Believed to be the oldest operating dram shop in Onondaga County, “The Cobble” first opened here named the National Hotel in 1839 under the ownership of Jonathan Hicks.

Stocking the shelves

The Food Pantry at St. Joseph the Worker Church needs some replenishing. The volunteers seek donations of canned vegetables, ravioli, spaghetti, soup and tomato sauce as well as boxed cereals.

The pantry at Sixth and Tulips streets is open from noon to 3 p.m. Mondays, from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesdays, from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and from noon to 2 p.m. Thursdays; 453-7970.

Go Green!

Why waste your presidential vote on a Republican or a Democrat? I’m voting for someone who cares more about people than profits.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein tells it like it is. Here’s what she said in August:

“The developers and financiers made trillions of dollars through the housing bubble and the imposition of crushing debt on homeowners. And when homeowners could no longer pay them what they demanded, they went to government and got trillions of dollars of bailouts. Every effort of the Obama Administration has been to prop this system up and keep it going at taxpayer expense. It's time for this game to end. It’s time for the laws to be written to protect the victims and not the perpetrators.”
