After 119 years, historical society disbands

— Plenty of hopeful job-seekers turned out last week at the soon-to-open Empire Sub Shop, at 510 Oswego St. Employment open houses were conducted Sept. 23, 25 and 27.

Operated by Bob Greene Jr. and his partners at the world-famous Oswego Sub Shop, the upcoming eatery will serve more than 65 varieties of subs, sandwiches and wraps, as well as salads soups, chicken wings and desserts. Their breads, sub rolls and pastries will all be freshly made at the shop’s on-site bakery.

And here’s some even better news: the Empire Sub Shop will be open late every night often until 2:30 a.m. and until 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday; empiresubshop.com.

At the young age of 16, actress Amanda Hebblethwaite has been typecast. She plays dead people.

Last fall, the teenage thespian performed in the “Lakeside” ghostwalk staged here by Onondaga Historical Association. Amanda portrayed Grace Crawford, a follower of Father William Miller, a New England preacher who had imprecisely predicted the end of the world in 1844.

Amanda, who lives in Liverpool, appeared last month in “Salt City Spirits,” OHA’s historic ghostwalk down city.

She played Mary Elizabeth Evans Sharp (1884-1985) who became one of the youngest businesswomen in America in 1903 when she established her Mary Elizabeth candy company at the University Block in downtown Syracuse. She had yet to turn 20.

As first reported in the Star-Review in July, the Liverpool Community Church wants to sell the Zogg Building which served as Liverpool High School for decades. The church bought it from the Liverpool Central School District in 2003.

The two blocks of property bounded by Fourth, Sixth, Birch and Hickory streets is being handled by Cushman & Wakefield, a New York City real-estate firm; 445-1030.
