LETTERS: Recusals are in order for Lysander appointments

Recently, our newly elected Lysander Town Board members appointed a new person to our Town Planning Board. Not only to the board, but also they appointed him chairman. I have a question regarding Mr. Frederick Allen and his new appointment. Will Mr. Allen, when and if the YMCA of Greater Syracuse submits an application, whether at Drakes Landing or another Lysander site, recuse himself?

EDITORIAL: Town had no business writing petition for residents

Residents of the area in favor of the Lamson Road Water District had to draft their own petition, but they didn’t know how to do that. So they went to the town board. They did everything by the book. Unfortunately, the town of Lysander didn’t.

Paul de Lima coffee: A hometown product to be proud of

When we first moved to the Syracuse area two years ago, one of the many questions I asked myself was whether I would ever find a cup of coffee in my new hometown that I liked as much as in my old hometown, namely the coffee I would purchase on my way to work each morning at a gas station-convenience store. A trivial dilemma, yes, but not for a coffee lover who needs one small cup o' Joe to get going in the early morning hours. Their coffee was always fresh, and, to me, absolutely perfect. So, as we started to get used to our new home, I began sampling the different coffees available in this area and soon noticed that many diners and restaurants were serving something called Paul de Lima coffee, and I really liked it. When we just happened to stumble upon their outlet store and museum, located in Cicero, I liked it even more; here was a hometown product to be proud of, a great coffee at a great price, plus a store and little museum to boot!

The cost of success in small business

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Eight years, and a blink of an eye: a baby, a brain tumor and a few other notable life events later, here we are. Circa has employed your children, your friends, your friends' children and your children’s friends — you name ’em, they have been welcome here, usually (but not always) to the delight of my customers. Owning and operating this small business in Cazenovia has brought both rewards and challenges.

Onondaga County to stop sending youths to Jamesville penitentiary

Onondaga County will stop sending 16-and 17-year-old offenders to the Jamesville Penitentiary effective immediately, County Executive Joanie Mahoney has announced. The action is the result of recent pressure from faith leaders and a request by a reporter to tour Jamesville Correctional Facility’s juvenile cell block, where advocates say youths are regularly locked in solitary confinement for weeks and sometimes months at a time.

Open government should be the norm

The term open government is a crock. If you’re not an open government, or striving to be as open as possible, you’re a closed government. Closed governments aren’t for the people. It’s yet to be seen whether “open government” is the 2012 catchphrase for local politics or if it’s an ...
