LETTER: ‘Arnie’ will be missed at Onondaga Lake

To the editor: Liverpool, specifically Onondaga Lake, will be missing a very prominent figure. The recent plan, after retiring with 40 years at Roth Steel and acquiring a pacemaker/defibrillator, was to move from Liverpool to Auburn, Maine to join family in late October. Lynn Arnold, known to everyone as Arnie, was seen on a regular basis riding his bike up and down the paths at Onondaga Lake, weather permitting. Last summer, he clocked an amazing 2,500 miles on that path, biking faithfully, sometimes with his good friend, Vince. His goal for this year was 3,000 miles (at the age of 74), but Arnie’s health prevented him from reaching that goal.

LETTER: What the codes office really does

To the editor: At a Cicero preliminary budget review and public hearing held Oct. 14, information was presented with reference to the Department of Zoning and Planning (Codes). It was stated that the codes department only issued three new home construction building permits and as a result the director’s job should be eliminated.

LETTER: Burtis for Legislature

LETTER: Burtis for Legislature To the editor: I am writing to show my endorsement for Tim Burtis for Third District, Onondaga County Legislature. As our legislator he already knows the issues, already knows the people and is creating meaningful results, such as the recent funding he secured for town of Cicero improvements and the Brewerton revitalization project.

LETTER: Killing deer is not the solution

To the editor: I am writing as so many have about the bait-and-kill proposal for deer in Fayetteville. It saddens me to think that we as a community have taken the habitat for the deer away with each development that is built.

LETTER: Concerns about Fayetteville Apartments project are legitimate

To the editor: I read with interest the concern that residents have about the plans for the area available for development at the Accurate Die Cast site on Genesee Street. I believe their concerns are very legitimate. As a villager, I too see the impact such developments have on not only our resources, but nearby villages and the town.

Vote Pushlar for Fenner town board


To the editor: Please consider voting for Adam Pushlar for Fenner town council. He would bring a younger person’s perspective to the town board and because of having a business in the town I believe he would have the town’s best interests at heart.

In support of Hayes for Nelson town board

LETTER: Resident responds to Morgan Management

To the editor: I could not help but be amused by Morgan Management's call for the superintendent of Fayetteville-Manlius Schools to retract the district's initial analysis of the potential impact of the developer's proposed mega apartment complex in Fayetteville. Simply because Morgan didn't get its way right out of the gate doesn't mean we should be subject to these diversionary and silly antics.
