600 students will have visited the farm from across Central New York to learn about how maple syrup is made by the end of the season. On Tuesday March 23, 60 students from Enders Road Elementary School in Manlius visited the farm. During their visit, owner Matthew Critz showed the students how to grade different batches of

School tax levy could increase 3.5 percent Decreasing state funding means higher taxes, despite cuts By Doug Campbell

The current proposed Cazenovia school budget for 2010-11 includes an increase in the school tax levy of 3.25 to 3.5 percent. While tax rates have historically increased by less, cuts to state aid of more than $1 million have forced the district to make cuts across the board, cutting $1 million

from what the budget would have been. Despite the 3.25 to 3.5 percent tax levy increase, the budget will only be increasing .75 percent. “Everyone always asks: what are we going to cut? We try to keep it the furthest away from the kids as possible,” Superintendent Robert Dubik said. “‘What’s the minimal impact?’” Of the $1 million reduction, about $750,000 will come from personnel. The district is reducing positions through retirement and attrition. Five staff members will retire at the end of the school year, and they will not be replaced. “We’re fortunate this

year — the retirements are going to help us,” Dubik said. These positions are not being removed simply because of budgetary issues, Assistant Superintendent Bill Furlong said — the school is also facing declining enrollment. The remaining $250,000 will come from areas across the budget. There will be reductions in equipment, software, buildings and grounds, transportation,

professional development and more. The athletic department will also face cuts in various aspects of the program; the district will reduce uniforms and equipment spending, as well as potentially combining coaching positions. ”It’s really a little bit of everything,” Dubik said. The district is also using $500,000 from their reserves to offset the increase. But while helpful

in the short term, drawing that amount from the reserves every year is not a sustainable solution. And next year could be harder for the district, with federal stimulus assistance ending after the 2010-11 school year, the possibility of fewer retirements, and more potential cuts in state aid. “We’re not out of the woods yet, by any means,” Dubik said. The board will adopt the proposed budget at their 6:30 p.m. April 12 meeting. The board welcomes public input at the meeting, and anyone who wants to provide input before April 12 is welcome to call 655-1317.

Area Community Development Association; and is president of the board of trustees of the Cazenovia Public Library. She is also a regular panelist on WCNY-TV’s weekly news talk show, “The Ivory Tower Half Hour.” “The Maxwell courses reflect two of the most important characteristics of the Maxwell School: they bring a cross-disciplinary approach to questions of public policy and citizenship,” Andersen said. “I have wholeheartedly enjoyed working with colleagues from across the School in the MAX Courses over the years, as we work to provide undergraduate students with the tools they need to be engaged, informed, and critically thinking citizens. I am honored to take on the responsibilities of overseeing these courses from Bob McClure, who has done a stellar job, and look forward to continuing his work.” McClure, the current

Chapple Family Professor, is pleased with Andersen’s appointment. “Kristi is the perfect occupant of the Chapple Professorship,” he said. “She is an innovative and accomplished teacher, a nationally recognized scholar, a citizen-leader of the Maxwell School community as well as an elected public voice in the larger metropolitan community. And on top of all that, she knows the Maxwell signature courses inside and out from her many years of teaching in them. I have the utmost confidence that the Maxwell courses — with her energy and intellect — will get a shot of new energy and sophistication that will serve our students, the Maxwell School, and the University extraordinarily well. I could not be more confident and pleased about the future of Maxwell’s signature citizenship courses.”

Job-seeking adults need help with skills

be held in April at Sullivan Free Library in Chittenango. The dates are April 8, 15, 21, and 29 at 6:00-9:00 p.m. There is no fee and all materials are provided. “The thrust of the tutor training,” Atwood said, “is to enable volunteers to use their life experiences to relate to adult learners who are trying to upgrade their learning skills and life skills. To facilitate this process they learn about how adults learn, how to be learner-centered, how to identify learning styles and how to use a variety of teaching strategies.” For more information or to register, contact Atwood at 761-2525 or Early registration is encouraged. The deadline is Friday noon, April 2.

Tutor training event scheduled for April Morris Atwood, Coordinator of Madison County Reads Ahead, is calling for tutors. He has been doing this since 2006 to link tutors with adults who are improving their reading skills, learning English as a second language or getting ready to take the GED Exam. These services have been available at public libraries throughout Madison County on a flexible schedule for adults 18 and older since 2006. “During the past year the numbers of adults seeking help with GED preparation have tripled,” according to Atwood. “While we still tutor

adults in reading and writing, the great majority seeking services have taking the GED Exam as their goal,” Atwood explained. “We receive many referrals on behalf of job-seeking adults.” The job-seeking pool includes adults in their late teens, twenties, and thirties who need the GED Diploma. In addition, there are older adults who have been laid off and never finished high school, and now they need that credential for another job or retraining. This means that many tutors are going to be helping adults in two areas: polishing their writing skills to write an essay for the GED Exam, and reviewing math sk ills including fractions, decimals, percents, algebra

phased retirement.” Andersen joined the Maxwell School’s political science department in 1984; her research focuses on American politics and political parties, women and politics, public opinion and immigration. She was named a Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith Professor in 2002, and a Maxwell Professor of Teaching Excellence in 2003. She has taught in the MAX Courses since 2007. Andersen’s book, “After Suffrage: Women in Partisan and Electoral Politics Before the New Deal,” won the Victoria Schuck Award from the American Political Science Association. Her earlier book, The Creation of a Democratic Majority, 1928-1936, has been influential in shaping political scientists’ thinking about New Deal realignment. She is active in her community: She has been a member of the Cazenovia Town Board since 2005; serves as a board member of the Cazenovia

Working people or retired people who have two hours a week to volunteer; high school graduates, college graduates, caring people, sharing people, people who like to help others succeed.

The principal duty of the Chapple Family Professor is to carry on the long tradition of the Maxwell School of encouraging undergraduates to learn and think about their roles as citizens in a democracy. To that end, Andersen will teach in, and provide leadership for, the School’s two interdisciplinary, team-taught, undergraduate citizenship courses: “Critical Issues in the United States” and “Global Communities,” which are known as the MAX Courses. “Given her many years of leadership in the Department of Political Science, her scholarly accomplishments, and her outstanding record as a teacher, Professor Andersen richly deserves this recognition,” said Dean Wallerstein. “She is clearly the best qualified person to take over the leadership of the MAX Courses when Professor Bob McClure steps down and begins a

OPINION Editorial

Student volunteers make all the difference

During the month of April, student volunteers from Cazenovia High School will be honoring Earth Day with a community-wide clean up beginning 10 a.m. Saturday April 10. Kudos to the students, who include members of Project CAFÉ, for donating their youthful energy to this and other important activities that change our community for the better. Do you have chores, yardwork or heavy lifting that you just can’t handle? Project CAFÉ volunteers will also soon take part in a service work weekend. Donations for all of their hard work will go to charity. Those interested should call 6559380. Students will be actively involved in a spaghetti dinner to benefit not just another extremely important cause, but also their friend. Funds from the dinner will go to support Cazenovia High School senior Taylor Matt, whose leukemia returned after five years in remission. Taylor is awaiting a bone marrow transplant, but the search is more difficult because of her Native American heritage; the registry contains relatively few donors who identify as Native American. The benefit dinner for Taylor will be held April 8. Bravo to the Cazenovia High School students who work every day to make a difference in their community and their world.

Caz Garden Club grateful for community support Submitted by Nancy Hook

More than a year ago, the Cazenovia Garden Club began asking residents of our school district to collect the screw on caps from water, soda, detergents and personal care products, to name just a small variety, as well as the small snap lids on gallons of milk, juice and iced tea. They are considered trash to everyone except a company that recycles them into containers for their line of hair and beauty products, named Aveda. Locally sold by Matthew’s Salon Spa, here and at their Dewitt location, the salon was responsible financially for sending them back to Aveda after residents and businesses dropped them

off. Without complaint, their workload carried on for a year, until the magnitude of Cazenovia’s involvement made doing so not only fiscally, but logistically, impossible to keep up with. Garden Club member, Nancy Hook, hating to see a program with so much momentum fail, learned by calling Aveda, that a school could receive free shipping, if they wished to sign up. School Superitendent, Robert Dubik has been happy to help and now students at the both the Middle and High Schools have boxes beside where their empty water and juice bottles are deposited, to drop off caps as well. The biggest supporter of this effort has been Jessica Amidon, owner of

Caz Cans, behind Right Aid. She has been gathering a large trash bag full every 2 weeks. Anyone can drop off their caps during her open hours or at Matthew’s Salon at 5 Linklaen Street. Students and their families can use the school collection boxes. Many businesses and churches have been collecting and can either bring them to the already named locations, or if they wish, call Nancy Hook at 655-8754, for large amounts. She also is happy to answer any questions at that number. Just a reminder: If the plastic top does not screw on and is not just the small plastic top of a gallon jug, it is trash, unless there is the recycle symbol of a triangle. If so, please put it in your

green bin. A whole load of the correct items can be contaminated by having the wrong plastic in the mix, even the little ring at the top of a milk jug. When the boxes are prepared for shipment, the process is slowed significantly, when the misplaced items have to be sorted out. Garden Club thanks all of our residents for adding one more thing to the recycling challenge everyday, but we were sure you’d embrace another way to keep Cazenovia beautiful. Sincere thanks also, to our partners in this effort, Matthew and Colette Dydo at Matthew’s, Jessica Amidon at Caz Cans and Bob Dubik, for coming in to rescue the program.

On March 23, thirty-four players showed up to play on nine tables. Elsie Henton made her first appearance, partnering with Rose Hall and Irene Bahouth enjoyed her first time playing with the always feisty, 97 year old, Fran Coventry. Alice Angelo teamed with Elie Ludwig to claim overall honors and win the East/West side. Toni and Bob Salisbury nipped Joyce and Gary Droege to claim first place, North/ South.

I have lived in Morrisville for the past 22 years. I taught in the nutrition program at Morrisville State College for twenty years until my retirement two years ago. Last year, when I went to get my taxes done, I realized it only took about 30 minutes and cost quite a lot of money. I was thinking ‘I could do this myself’ so when I was asked by RSVP to become a tax counselor, I jumped at the opportunity. One thing about RSVP is you get the training you need to do the job. I took the tax preparer training, which was excellent. I had to be certified by the IRS in order to be a tax preparer for RSVP. As a new tax counselor, I have been working with other counselors and it has really helped me feel comfortable. Since the taxes are filed online, I have felt a real sense of accomplishment

in learning something new and different. I do taxes in Morrisville and Oneida. The Oneida Library is an especially busy walkin site, and I have been happy to go there and work with the rest of the team. The most rewarding part about this volunteer work is the interaction with all the great people I have met. I am always up for something new and that’s what I get with this volunteer job. Also, I know I’m doing something important by helping folks get their taxes done. If I had to give someone advice who is considering volunteering with RSVP, I would say it is worth your while to challenge yourself. Try something new! You don’t have to be a tax counselor, you can do almost anything with RSVP. I have lived in one community for over twenty years, but I always felt rushed with work and the day to day

Credit union honors area school bus drivers

Food Bank of Central New York

Employees serving Chittenango, M-ECS and Madison thanked

Be a part of Central New York's Premiere Gourmet Tasting Gala, SavorSyracuse 2010, an event to benefit The Food Bank of Central New York. Our evening includes tasting samples from dozens of Central New York's finest restaurants, wineries, caterers, and breweries, plus live entertainment, raffle, and the company of more than 600 fellow philanthropists and food lovers in the elegant historic Hotel Syracuse.

It has been said, “Take of those who take care of your children.” So it is with great appreciation that the staff and members of FocalPoint Federal Credit Union, with a Chittenango location, recently conducted a series of “School Bus Driver Support” events to show just how much they value the care and dedication shown by school transportation department employees throughout the year. “School bus drivers, mechanics and dispatchers often aren’t given the credit and thanks they deserve for assuring that our children get to and from school safely and on schedule…despite obstacles like traffic, weather and unforeseen challenges,” said Jim Hartman, a member of the credit union. Hartman coordinates the School Bus Driver Support events along with Focal-

Point staffers who handed out hot coffee and tea, along with fresh bagels and muffins to more than 100 transportation department drivers, mechanics and dispatchers employed by the Chittenango, Morrisville-Eaton and Madison school districts. The events, which took place over several weeks in early and mid-March were a big hit with the bus drivers, who said it’s nice to know that people care about them as much as they care about their young passengers. “Several drivers said they have received thank you gifts from children and parents, but never something like this from a local business or organization,” said FocalPoint’s CEO Marilyn Marra-Crolick. “We’re looking forward to scheduling more school bus driver support events before the end of the school year. It’s just one more way for us to give back to the community that has helped our credit union continue to grow and succeed.”

Just get to Augusta already All right, time for a recap. In the 2009 Masters, Angel Cabrera won after Kenny Perry, who led through much of the final round, bogeyed the last two holes and Chad Campbell, who also reached the playoff with Cabrera and Perry, missed a short putt on 18 to get eliminated. Read those facts, and remember them. For it might be the last you hear about them prior to the 74th edition of this springtime classic. What the return of Tiger Woods to competitive golf at Augusta National means, quite simply, is that the rest of the field will cease to exist. Not just be cast aside, or ignored, or forgotten, but vanish, for their presence at the Biggest Sports Story of the Millennium would mean that this was, darn it all, a golf tournament. Never before have I looked forward more to a golf telecast. In its own ironic and strange way, the total control Augusta National has over the way its event is covered will serve as a haven from the single-minded insanity of the build-up to it.

First of all, the Masters does not just hand out press credntials to anyone with a badge. Only serious folks allowed – golf writers, then the rest of the sports journalist community. Of course, that will include a fair share of self-promoting, self-righteous columnists that pollute our TV screens and get more face time than the athletes they endlessly bash, but it’s still better than TMZ or the National Enquirer and the rest of the stalking crowd. Then there’s the oftcriticized Masters telecast itself. There’s ESPN for the early rounds, then CBS for the weekend, the latter having broadcast this tournament since 1956. It’s always done on a year-to-year basis, with rights far cheaper than other big sporting events and fewer commercials. In return, Augusta controls everything, including the language. Say the wrong thing and, like Jack Whitaker in the 1960s and Gary McCord in 1994, you won’t be asked back. That reaches an absurd extreme, too – no mention of rough (must say second cut),

or of a gallery (patrons, always), among other things. A lot of folks, especially the golf fans, despise this maniacal control, especially since the other three majors, while properly reverential in their own way, never reach the absurd extremes that Augusta does. On the other hand…at least with this golf tournament, the primary emphasis is on the golf, and all the players trying to win it and fulfill a lifelong dream. No single individual is more important than the event itself. And boy, will we need that perspective for the 2010 Masters. Within the oasis of the ESPN/CBS coverage (and masters. org too), proper attention will be given to all the contenders, whether their private life is a tabloid pinata or not. Yes, the ratings will be enormous. Big deal – my sense is that golf fans, and perhaps even some of the non-golf fans, will be beyond sick and tired of all-Tiger-all-thetime when they tee it up for real on April 8. The Return of Woods (you must use capital letters

for this, everyone else will) is bound to have a double-edged effect on the others in the field. A positive is that none of them will feel any kind of outside pressure. All of it will be the usual amount of natural tension a major championship, a trip to Augusta and the chance to don a green jacket creates. Countering that, though, is a negative side where all the players, if anyone bothers to ask them questions, will be getting a steady diet of Tiger, whether they want it or not. And there’s a real chance that, if someone else wins the tournament, they’ll be treated as a trivial footnote – tolerated at best, ignored at worst. That would be criminal. The gawkers who tune in expecting some sort of heckling will be sorely disappointed. The Augusta patrons know that, if they act up in any way, the club has

the right to revoke their badges and keep them from attending future Masters. And the waiting list to get those badges stretches all the way to Macon, perhaps even Birmingham. That, too, will be quite welcome. All the outsiders that want golf to turn into football or hockey or baseball, complete with boos and cheers while the players are swinging, are way out of line. In any sport, the best work is done when the competitive conditions are optimal. Golf survived centuries quiet. It can continue to do so. Deal with it. For the whole of golf, it’s good to have its brightest star back. The best way to survive the crazy conditions surrounding Tiger’s return is to ignore about 99.99 percent of the coverage and commentary you’ll hear in the next couple of weeks and just wait for the Masters. For all the other things we’ll hear, the Redemption of Tiger Woods will mostly hinge on what he does once he gets to the course and starts swinging again – a golf club, that is.

Students celebrate Earth Syracuse Poster Project readies 2010 poster series Day early this year Caz artist, professor guides advanced student artists

The Syracuse Poster Project will unveil the 2010 poster series, 6 p.m. Thursday, April 8, in the atrium at City Hall Commons, 201 E. Washington St., Syracuse. The Poster Projec t br ings together poets and Syracuse University artists to create an annual series of poetry posters for the poster panels of downtown Syracuse. The 2010 ser ies includes 15 posters created by a class of advanced illustration students taught by Syracuse University

Professor Roger DeMuth, of Cazenovia, and one supplemental poster created by Eric Johanni, a graduate student in print making. The student artists work in a variety of styles, including decorative, pattern-based, landscape, caricature, graphic and painterly. The resulting posters pay tribute to nature, highways and byways, home ownership, café culture, local industry, childhood recollections of downtown, city landmarks, and Irish heritage. The unveiling culminates nearly a year of collaborative work. Over the summer, participating poets write the three-line form of poetry known as

haiku. By the September deadline, approximately 90 poets had submitted 176 new poems. The Downtown Committee of Syracuse will post the posters shortly after the unveiling. The posters remain on display for a year. Beyond the poster panels, the project reaches the larger community by selling 11 x 17-inch prints of the posters and by exhibiting a complete set of the prints at a different downtown venue each month. Prints can be purchased at Eureka Crafts in Armory Square, at the Copy Centers, 131 S. Salina St., and at the project ’s on-line store at All

Cazenovia High School students are planning a week of service-related activities beginning April 8. Project CAFÉ student leaders are planning an early observance of Earth Day as the week’s culmination. The communitywide cleanup will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday April 10. While Earth Day is not until April 22, students are starting early to avoid a conflict with the school’s spring break. Participants should meet at the high school west parking lot (along Forman Street) at 10 a.m.

April 10. Volunteers will be assigned a portion of the village or surrounding area and given coordinating instructions. The event will wrap up at noon outside Project CAFÉ’s Common Grounds headquarters at 35 Albany Street. All groups and individuals throughout the community are invited to participate. Project CAFÉ students will also take part in a service work weekend. Community members with springtime chores such as raking or moving items out of winter storage can call to arrange for a team of student work-

ers. All donations for the work will go to charity. If you are interested in arranging for a team, call 655-9380. Cazenovia students will also be active in a number of other events that weekend, including an April 8 spaghetti dinner to benefit Taylor Matt and her family, the “Mr. Caz” pageant on April 9 and the spring “White Out” benefit on April 10. Details for all these events will be featured in next week’s issue.

Kurt Wheeler is on the Project CAFÉ adult board.

In the sugar house, energy from the burning wood turns 40 gallons of sap into a gallon of maple syrup. The students were impressed when stoker Patrick Allen loaded a towering stack of wood into the fire, which he has to do every seven minutes. The process produces three to four gallons of syrup an hour. Allen is a 2007 graduate of Cazenovia High School. This year marks the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10th annual Maple Syrup Celebration.

Scarves can be worn year round you definitely don’t want to go with something you could wear with jeans. You’ll want to stick with the fanciest, silkiest scarves you can find. I find that people tend to make scarves incredibly difficult; but the truth is, wearing a scarf is very simple. It’s nearly impossible to do wrong! There are so many ways to tie a scarf around your neck. If you’re wearing a long scarf, start by sort of scrunching it together lengthwise, and placing it around the back of your neck so that the ends hang down around the fronts of your thighs. Then wrap one end around the front of your neck, and let that end hang behind you. If you want, do the same with the other side, but it isn’t necessary. Also, you can bring the ends back around to the front of your neck, so that it’s wrapped around your throat, and the ends hang in front of you. You can wrap the scarf as many times around your neck as you want, as loose or as tight as you want. For a belt or a sash just take the scarf and tie it around your waist. This style will make your hips seem smaller! (And who can say no to that?) To wear a scarf around your wrist, just wrap a smaller scarf around like you would a very long necklace that you want to turn into a bracelet, and tie the ends or tuck them


under the wrapped parts. To wear one on your head, just think back to the 1960s and 1970s, and the hippie fashions. You can wear it as a turban covering your head, or tie it around the back of your head to make a headband. Tying a scarf to your purse is simple (and is quite explanatory in itself.) It doesn’t matter where you tie a scarf, or how – it will always give your look something extra! If you have a question about a specific style, email me at rinnic007@ Keep reading “Fashion Beat” every week! Next week I’ll tell you about some of the latest Spring trends – how to wear them, where to wear them, and what to wear them with. And remember, as Stacy and Clinton always say: You wear the clothes; they don’t wear you.

Rinni Clark graduated from Clinton High School in 2007. In May 2009 she graduated from Herkimer County Community College with an associates degree in Fashion Merchandising. Clark is currently a junior at Cazenovia College and is now working towards a bachelor’s degree.

Scarves can be seen throughout history, dating back to ancient Rome. In those times, men used scarves as our grandfathers might use handkerchiefs – to wipe sweat from their faces and necks. Eventually, Roman men began to use scarves to accessorize by tying them to their belts. Of course, women adopted this style soon after. Today, scarves are our most versatile accessory. You don’t need to live in Alaska or Antarctica to wear scarves all year round – they can be worn with anything and everything! You can wear one with jeans and a T-shirt, business attire, formal wear – whatever you can think of. Wear it as a belt or sash, around your neck or wrist, on your head, tied to your purse...or anywhere else you can think of! This accessory can jazz up any boring old outfit you may have. When you wear a scarf with jeans and a T-shirt, you can do anything with it, and it can be of any fabric. Textures are in right now, so forget about what your mother taught you and pair those casual, worn out blue jeans with a “fancy” silk scarf. For business attire, you may not want to experiment too much with textures. Stick to dressier scarves around your neck, or tied to your purse. In formal wear,




Forget Me Nots: A welcome reminder


Favorite plants like favorite people can become friends. A familiarity or a certain easiness. When Richard moved into senior housing he struck up a friendship with a delightful lady named Pat. After a bit Pat and Richard fell in love. They were seen taking long walks together, summer and winter, it didn’t seem to matter. They were always hand-in-hand, or with arms linked because Richard was blind except for a little peripheral vision. Their love continued for years, right up through when Pat became ill. Richard, in spite of his own problems with age and vision, saw to it that Pat was taken to the emergency room when things worsened and it was Richard who was by her bedside when she passed. And this spring Richard asked if a special plant or flower in honor of Pat could be tucked away on the grounds of the senior housing. Like Pat herself, maybe a plant that is not at all fussy. A plant that isn’t showy really because Pat wasn’t showy, but a plant that would, like Pat, bring a smile to everyone it meets. Perhaps too a plant that would be at home like Pat was in a variety of settings. And finally a plant

that would let people remember and not forget a special friend and a special love. The plant Richard’s friend chose to grow is the Forget Me Not (Myosotis sylvatica .) This is a foot tall perennial or self seeding annual, with clusters of tiny soft blue flowers with yellow centers that burst forth in early spring. You can sow Forget Me Not seeds directly outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Dig the soil well and just scatter seeds by hand. Gent ly sif t a t iny amount of soil over the seeds, covering them with just 1/8 inch fine soil. Water gently and in about 10 to 20 days the seeds will germinate. Once the Forget Me Nots have reached about 3 inches tall, thin them to 6 inches apart. To be sure you get flowers the first year, you can start seeds indoors a few weeks before your last frost. Forget Me Nots grow best in fairly moist rich soil out of the hottest sunlight, perhaps under a tree

or in filtered sunlight. Besides sowing seeds in the spring you can plant Forget Me Not seeds in middle to late summer for blooms next year. Like all good friends this plant spreads itself around, and you will often find it re-sows itself for the next year. A native of Europe and Asia Forget Me Nots are hardy and survive in USDA zones 3 to9. They have escaped and grow wild throughout North America. Like love itself, once planted, the Forget Me Not spreads willingly. Good friends like Richard and Pat get along well with others and the Forget Me Not is a great companion to white alyssum and small spring bulbs like grape hyacinths. Forget Me Nots are quite at home in a cottage garden or along a woodland path. So this spring and early summer a cluster of blue flowers will bloom near a spot where love bloomed. And Pat will be remembered and perhaps for years the Forget Me Nots will come back. The Forget Me Nots will spread and pop up where no one remembers planting them, because sometimes plants remember love and honor lovers like Richard and Pat, even when mere gardeners forget.

A very busy season for community service By Maria Groetz

We have had a very busy season with community service. In December, we decorated the church with other people in the community for Christmas; it looked beautiful when we were finished. We also made some lip balm for the solders in Iraq. Surprisingly it was very easy to make, and we made it with all natural products. We made many exciting projects during the season too. First we made some cool clothes for us to wear. This sewing project took time, and we all made something different to wear. Then we made our own tasty soup. Everyone created a unique masterpiece out of a wide array of vegetables and spices!

soup. There was no real winner because all the soups tasted delicious. It was fun to cook in this project. In March, we made our posters and got ready for our public presentations. Everyone will have to speak on one subject for five or more minutes. Public presentations help us gain confidence in our public speaking skills. Now we are making lamps with our own decorated lampshades. We have used table saws, drills, chisels, radial arm saws, and glue to make our lamp. We still have to add the final touches to our lamps. In 4-H we do a range of projects, where we learn various skills. We appreciate all the skilled people who help us to complete our projects. We are grateful that they take time out of their busy schedules to teach us.

Stuffed turkey club-burger NUMBER OF SERVINGS: 4

If you love a bit of spice in your life, add a pinch of Cayenne pepper or a dash of hot sauce to the mayonnaise in this recipe. INGREDIENTS: • 454 g (1 lb) minced, raw turkey • 125 ml (1/2 cup) breadcrumbs • 1 egg • 60 ml (1/4 cup) onions, thinly sliced • Salt and pepper to taste • 125 ml (1/2 cup) tomatoes, diced • 4 strips bacon, cooked and diced • 125 ml (1/2 cup) old cheddar cheese, grated • 4 hamburger buns • 4 lettuce leaves • 125 ml (1/2 cup) mayonnaise • 125 ml (1/2 cup) fried onions (optional)

DIRECTIONS: Mix the first five ingredients just enough to bind them together. Don’t manipulate them too much. Set aside. In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, the bacon and the cheese. Divide the turkey mixture in four equal portions and form into patties. Make a hole in the centre of each burger and fill with a quarter of the tomato mixture. Close up the hole so that the stuffing is enclosed by the meat. Flatten the burgers gently. Grill or pan-fry the burgers for 7 or 8 minutes on each side, or until the meat is cooked through (the temperature in the middle should reach 80 ºC (175 ºF). Place the burgers on the bread buns and garnish with the lettuce leaves, mayonnaise and fried onions. Recipe and photo: Chicken Farmers of Canada,, with more than 500 recipes.

Oneida Healthcare Center â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $18 million construction project will continue through most of 2010. In Oc tob er the hospital formally opened an 18,000 sq. ft. front addition, which houses four brand new, state of the art Operating Rooms with integrated video support and an all new Intensive Care Unit on the second floor. The new first floor space contains a new Medical Staff suite, Health Information Management, Central Sterile Supply and Information Technology Center. Meanwhile, second f lo or renovat ions are well underway. Those include expansion of the Ambulator y Surger y Unit, additional treatment rooms in the Emergency Department, renovation of the Triage/Waiting and Patient Registration areas and a new Radiology reception area. A beautiful new waiting area will include a comfor t ing fireplace and an impressive new donor wall display with a user friendly LCD information kiosk will greet visitors in the updated lobby. As that work progresses, it will become necessary to close the main (Bess Chapman) entrance/circle and create a temporary main entrance at the rear of the hospital. This will take place around April 1 st. All patient pick-up and drop-off traffic will be diverted to an area located between the hospital and Extended Care facility (see map) and a fenced pedestrian walkway will guide people from the parking areas to the temporary main entrance. The updated Bess Chapman entrance and circle will re-open somet ime dur ing the summer. Part of the project is being funded through the Oneida Healthcaring Campaign, which is poised to surpass the $3 million goal. Gifts and pledges totaling more than $2.8 million have been pledged to date a n d t h e C o m mu n i t y and Employee divisions
