An open letter to the residents of the village of Fayetteville


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.

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


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.

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.

Excellent column on suburban deer control


To the editor: I commend Steve Chamberlain, who, in his excellent Oct. 29 column on deer-resistant plants, gently reiterated the point that the deer population in residential areas (like Manlius) needs to be reduced.

Fred’s Barber Shop closing


To the editor: I am sad to announce that Nov. 22 will be the last day open for Fred’s Barber Shop in Cazenovia. It has been my pleasure to meet and serve the many wonderful people of Cazenovia and surrounding areas. I consider myself lucky to have established fulfilling relationships with my clients and their families and will truly miss them.
