Supporting our veterans

Last week, we saw many celebrations and ceremonies to honor our veterans and those currently serving in our military. I had the pleasure to participate in the Cicero American Legion’s open house on Veterans Day and was honored to speak with many local veterans. They have done so much for us and deserve our respect and support.

Mourning for Mr. Dubik

His inexhaustible optimism and perpetual kindness made him a beloved superintendent and universally adored friend.

Meteorologist Carrie Cheevers actually loves lake effect

Well, we’ve endured the first lake effect snowfall of the year. A few inches blanketed lawns and landscapes from Oswego to Ithaca after flakes began falling at noon Friday, Nov. 14, and continued on and off for a couple days. The unusual mid-day squall was offset by intermittent appearances of blue skies and sunshine, as though Mother Nature couldn’t quite make up her mind.

LETTER: Cicero budget a disappointment

To the editor: Yet again the Cicero Town Board and supervisor have disappointed the people of Cicero. The so-called budget they passed with a 4 to 1 vote is merely a way for them to kick the can further down the road and delay the inevitable.

An open letter to the residents of the village of Fayetteville

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Our elected trustees are all fond of saying how much they value the “quality of life” in the village of Fayetteville and how hard they fight to ensure that the “quality of life” here is safeguarded. For the most part, I doubt that this motivation can be questioned. However, there are times when the policies they enact and defend defy both common sense and the “quality of life” that they so desperately want to defend. One such example of a misguided policy is their support of Richard Green’s revival of an old law that interferes with a resident’s right to contract for snow removal services.

LETTER: Praising the cast and crew of ‘Young Frankenstein’

To the editor: Just a brief letter to sing the praises of the cast and crew of the show "Young Frankenstein," staged by the Baldwinsville Theater Guild. We attended Saturday night, Nov. 1, and we were thoroughly entertained and enthralled with the talent, commitment and professionalism of every actor and actress, as well as all the stage hands, orchestra and production staff.

Grave concern in village about drivers running red lights downtown, endangering pedestrians

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I write this letter to the editor with grave concern over a major problem we have here in Cazenovia. Just recently, both my wife and I have nearly been struck by vehicles running the red light at the intersection of Albany, Mill and Lincklaen streets. In my wife’s case, she was already proceeding to walk across the crosswalk, with the legal right of way pedestrian light, and was nearly run over by a motorist running the red light heading east bound. I have had three close calls in just the past week, twice while on foot and one while behind the wheel, of people speeding through the changing lights.

CPF thanks community for successful Walk Among the Spirits

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: The weather was great and the ghosts ready to share their stories in Cazenovia’s Evergreen Cemetery for Cazenovia Preservation Foundation’s first annual Walk Among the Spirits. More than 400 people toured the cemetery and visited the grave sites of eight colorful ghosts whose lives spanned most of the first 200 years of Cazenovia’s settlement.

What freedom, independence and Veterans Day mean to me

As conflicts continue today and our armed forces face adversaries on multiple battlefields, I would ask if, in our current conflicts, on this Veteran’s Day we are fighting toward the altogether same insurgent “pyrrhic” victory with modest gains whose cumulative effect does not significantly change the strategic state of the current 12-year Afghanistan “siege”? Most importantly, a “victory” in which the cost (the loss of so many lives) far outweighs the benefit? I want to believe the cost was and is worth it, but history will be the judge.

GCACC thanks community for successful fall festival

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: The Greater Cazenovia Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank everyone who participated in our First Annual Fall Festival.
