Disappointed by town’s refusal to do chemical treatment of lake in 2016

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I wish to share my reaction to the decision by the town board not to treat the lake in 2016. The town, in cooperation with the CLA (Cazenovia Lake Association) have been actively partnering in lake treatments since 2009. For the first time since herbicides were applied to the lake, we will have two consecutive years without treatment. Based on the conditions lake users experienced this past year we may see greatly impaired recreational use of the lake in 2016.

Cazenovia Lake has never been in worse shape

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I recently attended the Cazenovia Lake Watershed annual forum and then read the follow up article in the Cazenovia Republican. My concern is, had I only read the article, I would have concluded that Cazenovia Lake is doing just fine. Nothing could be further from the truth. Everyone I have spoken to says the lake has never been in worse shape.

CRIS Timebank is a great program

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I have been a member of the CRIS Timebank for nine months and am so excited about this program. I am able to find people to do the chores I can no longer do by myself — such as cleaning out closets and organizing items for a garage sale. I even found someone to bake a pie for a special occasion — and it was delicious.

LETTER: Help shelter pets this holiday season

To the editor: Each year, more than 4 million homeless pets are killed because of overpopulation. Families who adopt from shelters or rescue groups can help save these lives and support the growing trend of socially responsible holiday shopping. You will make room in shelters for other homeless animals as well as give an animal another chance for a family. You give the gift of life by adopting homeless pets rather than buying from breeders or pet stores. Animals from pet stores usually come from kitten or puppy mills, where animals live in horrible conditions.
