Peggy’s Lot to change to monthly permit parking during daytime hours

Two new 10-minute spots for postal parking also added

Cazenovia residents and visitors are not paying to use “Peggy’s Lot,” the paid public parking lot next to the post office on Lincklaen Street, so the village board decided Monday it was time to change how the lot is operated. Starting next week, 18 of the 23 spaces in the lot will be offered for monthly use via parking passes during daytime hours, while three spots will remain general use at the cost of $1 per hour. The remaining two spots, closest to the post office, last week were changed to free, 10-minute parking for postal patrons.

She listens to opera at full volume when she cooks with chocolate, country music when she bakes pies and Adam Levine, the lead singer of pop-rock band Maroon 5, when she has a big order. Regardless of the music or what she’s baking, however, Sherri Miller always bakes barefoot at her 1830s cottage in the village. Although Miller is accustomed to baking pies, cakes and dinners through her two Cazenovia businesses, Profiteroles and Bon Appetite Kitchens, she has now started baking shortbread for her third and newest Cazenovia business — the Tartine Bake Shop.

EPA proposes PCB cleanup plan for Lower Ley Creek portion of Onondaga Lake Superfund Site

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a plan to clean up contaminated soil and sediment at the Lower Ley Creek area of the Onondaga Lake Superfund Site located in the town of Salina. Discharges from nearby industries and a landfill have contaminated the soil and sediment with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and other hazardous substances. PCBs are potentially cancer-causing chemicals that can build up in the tissue of fish and other wildlife and pose a threat to people who eat them. The EPA proposal calls for a combination of excavation, capping and disposal of contaminated soil and sediment.

The Lucas Family has a knack for business

The Lucas name is well known in the Cazenovia area. That’s because the Lucas family has been selling farm equipment since approximately 1891. That certainly says a lot about a business if it’s been successful for more than a century. J.C. Lucas was not only a farm equipment dealer, but also a dairy farmer until the mid 1970s. J.C. Lucas and Sons started out as a McCormick-Deering dealership, eventually becoming International Harvester. In the mid 1950s, Ron and William Lucas took the reins of the business and it grew so much that in 1980 they moved into their current location on Route 20.
