A look at CNY’s haunted attractions
Ah, October! The leaves change colors, the temperatures start to drop, the kids are back in school — and the ghouls, ghosts and goblins come out to play! Is there any wonder that this is my favorite time of year?
Students and teachers should not have to be displaced from their classrooms because of mold issues but, unfortunately, this has been the case at Fayetteville-Manlius’ Wellwood Middle School for the past few years — has, in fact, been only one of multiple infrastructure issues at the school.

To the editor: Seventy years ago, World War II came to a welcomed close and so ended the military duty of millions of fine servicemen and women. Although we were no longer fighting on foreign battlefields, our service continued at home as U.S. veterans.As defenders of our nation and its freedoms, veterans share a special bond. We want the best for our families and our communities. That is why I am voting for Ed Szczesniak this November.
To the editor: I wonder about the sincerity of Councilor Becallo’s letter to the editor in the Sept. 23 Star-Review. The budget was discussed at the Cicero Town Board meeting on Sept. 23, yet Mr. Becallo did not mention his committee at this meeting. Also, the budget process began in June; it is not just beginning.

To the editor: I am a proud Lysander resident, born and raised in one of the best places to live in Central New York, and I feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to serve this community. I do so in honor of my father, who put his heart and soul into serving in local government.
To the editor: In the aftermath of the primary election held on Sept. 10, it is reasonable to believe that unimaginable history was just made in our town. So many of you watched it unfold in amazement. The primary was for registered Conservatives, with the winners capturing the all-important “extra line” to represent the Conservative Party on the November ballot.
