The Assembly passed an early voting bill last week. I voted against this measure. At a time when localities are stretched to the max, this would create another unfunded mandate and change our current system when it doesn’t need to be changed.
Before I even started kindergarten, my family lived in Liverpool on Salina Street in an upstairs apartment rented by Mary Landers and squeezed between two thriving businesses, Steve’s tavern to the north and Irish Jack Murphy’s auto repair shop to the south. Jack was a master mechanic, but I knew, even as a 5-year-old, that he was much more than that. Jack was a champion race-car driver!

In light of the recent article in the Messenger, Future of Radisson ice arena uncertain, dated April 9, The Greater Baldwinsville Ice Arena would like to provide a response to the community and ensure everyone that the rink is here to stay and is being operated efficiently and effectively by a not-for-profit organization, the GBIA.
With winter in our rear view mirror, spring is in full bloom. During this time of year, I receive many calls regarding certain warm weather issues. I would like to take this opportunity to address these issues and give town of Salina residents a few pointers for weathering the transition to the warm months ahead. Each winter, our town highway employees spend a great deal of time plowing our roads. Our plow crews do a wonderful job every year, and we have had a few heavy snowfalls. Sometimes it is inevitable to find some areas where the plows may have damaged the road edge or the lawn. If you have plow damage on your property, please call the town highway department as soon as possible at 455-5525 to report the damage. Crews have already begun the repair process to correct the damages and will continue to do so throughout the spring.

An increasing number of county residents have asked why it is nearly impossible to get a concealed carry pistol permit in Onondaga County.
The Big Chill … Timber Banks … The Northwest YMCA. These are just a few of the many stories I have had the pleasure to write about here in Baldwinsville. It was nearly eight years ago when I took the position as Messenger editor. Little did I realize how much this “job” would change my life.
