Thirty years ago, Syracuse Area Music Awards Hall of Famer Nancy Kelly honed her vocals accompanied by a variety of Hammond organists at Jewel’s, a salt-and-mostly-pepper nightclub on Philadelphia’s Broad Street. When she returned to CNY, she worked more often with pianists. One of them was Dino Losito.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor: Preserving opportunities for students is the top priority of our school district. I am not convinced that our elected representatives in Albany share that same priority. They all say education is important to them, but what have they done to make a difference? The Cazenovia School District has lost more than $6.2 million in state funding since the Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA) was implemented in 2009 as a short term “fix” to the state budget crisis. In response to this significant reduction in state aid, the school district has cut staff, programs, increased class size, collaborated with other districts and plugged the hole in our budget with reserve funds for the past five years. We as taxpayers have also shouldered the burden.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor: In the short time I have been part of the Cazenovia school community, I have come to recognize what a special place this is for kids. I have also come to realize the endangered nature of the many opportunities our students enjoy. The threat to student opportunity in Cazenovia exists because of a state aid funding formula that for years has been both inadequate and inequitable.
Did you know that over half of all cervical cancer cases occur in women who have rarely or never been screened for the disease? In fact, 4,000 U.S. women die annually of cervical cancer. Screening can prevent cervical cancer or find it early when it’s easier to treat.
You may have read or heard “Jim Corl is leaving the legislature.” This has been one of my most difficult career decisions.
Several months ago, I was contacted by Marjorie Ladd Bloomer, a descendant of the many Ladds who settled in the Clay area. Her donation of a complete genealogy of the Ladds lead to this information.
Talk about a meltdown! Ty Cogan could give the Wicked Witch of the West a run for her money. At about 8:25 p.m. Friday, Dec. 19, Liverpool Police Officer Todd Creller, one of Onondaga County’s top traffic cops, stopped Cogan, an off-duty Syracuse policeman who lives in Liverpool. Cogan was drunk, according to Creller — “slobbering” drunk, the resultant police paperwork would say.
Things are getting a bit chilly out there. Time to stock up with entertainment and winter projects here at the library for those long winter nights. While you’re here be sure to check out this month’s spectacular art show by the CNY Artist’s Guild and maybe take in a program or two to keep a check on cabin fever.
You’re making a pledge to get healthier this New Year. You found your sneakers and dusted off the treadmill you were using as a closet. Your yoga pants are no longer just a fashion choice — they are ready to do actual yoga. Now you’ve got to find the time in your day — 30 minutes minimum for heart health — to get physically active. The American Heart Association says there are plenty of easy, no-cost ways to do it.
Often, during the beginning of the new year, people make resolutions of goals or behaviors to better themselves for the upcoming year. Whether it’s to get into shape, to read more, to break a bad habit or to enjoy life more, all of these resolutions are set to improve the lives of the people who create them.
I am always impressed with the quality and variety of our local producers — cheese, vegetables, wines and breads. The good news is our economy is benefitting more from these local products.
