A successful restaurant does not belong among homes

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Chairman Huftalen and members of the planning board, Like many Cazenovians, I am worried by the precedent that will be set if the non-conforming use at the corner of Chenango Street and the bridge is rezoned as a Planned Development.

Two-fingered typist became our best writer

Marylee Manson Armour knew how to turn a phrase. She was one of Liverpool’s most gifted writers ever. Her crowning achievement was a book about a Fourth Lake mail-boat captain, “Heartwood: The Adirondack Homestead Life of W. Don Burnap.” Marylee died Feb. 20 at age 89, but she had continued journaling up into her 87th year, this time in the form of a blog. Her favorite topics were nature, spirituality and homespun Hoosier humor. Born in Terre Haute, Ind., Marylee had resided in Liverpool since 1947, spending summers at the family camp at Fourth Lake.
