Saddened by death of Carl Dennis

Closing of Erieville church is a tragedy


To the editor and community: As is probably well known by now, at the end of June the Erieville United Methodist Church had to close its doors. We are all saddened and disheartened by this event. Though we pleaded to the end, the decision was not ours, but a forced closure (discontinuance) by the UNY Annual Conference.

Cazenovia Lions Club Thanks Contributors to Annual Fireworks Fund

The Cazenovia Lions Club would like to thank and acknowledge all of the contributors including the anonymous donors who made our 2015 fundraising drive a success. We especially want to thank those of you who have continued to support us throughout the years.

We will no longer patronize Cazenovia because of unfriendly, unwelcoming parking enforcement


To the editor: Our family of between 50 and 60 people has been traveling to Cazenovia for an every-other-year family reunion. We stay and spend in Cazenovia and the surrounding area for four to six days each time... Many of us received tickets for overnight parking outside the dormitory on Sullivan Street. We have paid those under protest.

LETTER: Closed-door meeting gave every appearance of impropriety

To the editor: On July 13, I addressed the Lysander Town Board and inquired about a board meeting I witnessed being held behind closed doors earlier that day. The town attorney later provided me with an advisory opinion from the NYS Committee on Open Government, indicating the board can meet to seek legal advice and the Open Meetings Law does not apply. However, the opinion also stated: “Further, if at some point in a discussion the attorney stops giving legal advice, a public body may begin discussing or deliberating independent of the attorney. When that point is reached… the attorney-client privilege has ended and the body should return to an open meeting.”

LETTER: Marching Bees bring back memories

To the editor: My mom just sent me a clipping she’d held on to awhile, which was a letter from Dr. David Hamilton, Superintendent of Schools, and Casey Vanderstouw, marching band director, thanking alumni of the B’ville Marching Band for the years of support. That stirred quite a few emotions for me, and on behalf of many alumni, just wanted to share a ‘way back then’ moment.

CAVAC’s grateful thank you to the community


To the editor: On July 4 and 5, CAVAC (Cazenovia Area Volunteer Ambulance Corps) held the annual Cazenovia Arts and Crafts Fair on the lawn at Lorenzo State Historic Site. It was a beautiful weekend for CAVAC’s only fundraising event of the year. With over 125 arts, crafts and food vendors and an estimated 11,100 visitors attending the show, it was a resounding success.
