Column: Water worries

Since I often worry about things when no one else does, I wonder how many people worry about water. Maybe locally, not so many, but certainly for residents of California, as well as their neighbors, water is a subject they cannot ignore.

Cazenovia Lions Club Thanks Contributors to Annual Fireworks Fund

The Cazenovia Lions Club would like to thank and acknowledge all of the contributors including the anonymous donors who made our 2015 fundraising drive a success. We especially want to thank those of you who have continued to support us throughout the years.

We will no longer patronize Cazenovia because of unfriendly, unwelcoming parking enforcement

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Our family of between 50 and 60 people has been traveling to Cazenovia for an every-other-year family reunion. We stay and spend in Cazenovia and the surrounding area for four to six days each time... Many of us received tickets for overnight parking outside the dormitory on Sullivan Street. We have paid those under protest.

EDITORIAL: Let’s all help build a new community playground

Every community needs a great public park and playground, and plans are underway to create one in Cazenovia in the Riverside Drive area behind the Cazenovia Public Library. The village board has been working for months on plans to redevelop the “Creekside” district, which would include a park and playground surrounded by nature trails, and their board meeting next Monday, Aug. 3, will include a public hearing to discuss the issue. What is just as exciting as creating a new park for our community, however, is the opportunity for all of us to contribute to the project.

LETTER: Closed-door meeting gave every appearance of impropriety

To the editor: On July 13, I addressed the Lysander Town Board and inquired about a board meeting I witnessed being held behind closed doors earlier that day. The town attorney later provided me with an advisory opinion from the NYS Committee on Open Government, indicating the board can meet to seek legal advice and the Open Meetings Law does not apply. However, the opinion also stated: “Further, if at some point in a discussion the attorney stops giving legal advice, a public body may begin discussing or deliberating independent of the attorney. When that point is reached… the attorney-client privilege has ended and the body should return to an open meeting.”

EDITORIAL: Look out for Lyme

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne infectious disease in the United States. It infects about 300,000 people a year, roughly 10 times more Americans than previously reported. The number of cases reported annually has increased nearly 25-fold since national surveillance began in 1982, making it a huge public health problem. So what should we do about it? To start, we should educate ourselves about the problem.
