Nightmares before Christmas Author details ghostly hauntings around the county By Doug Campbell Looking for a Christmas gift on the spookier side? “Shades of Souls Passed,” by Teresa Andrews, is a collection of “true ghost stories” that take place in Madison County and surrounding areas, with some taking place at the Brae Loch Inn, Chittenango Falls State Park and Lorenzo. “I researched for several years, interviewing people, and only chose the stories that I found to be origi-

nal, personal and life-altering for the person that experienced [them],” Andrews said. The book is available now in e-book or paperback at Once Andrews receives a shipment, she will sell them at the Brae Loch Inn, the Brewster Inn, the Lincklaen House and the Colgate Bookstore. Andrews’s daughter, Jacqueline, illustrated the book. The cover was designed by graphic designer and Cazenovia resident Jay Dyer. “It’s really stunning,” said Andrews. The book had one rave review

on “Whether it’s a cozy autumn evening, a cool summer’s night, or a blustery winter snow storm, the author’s descriptions are enchanting and poetic,” said Katherine Conroy. “Although I read this book from start to finish without being able to put it down, it is nice how you can pick it up and just read a story or two if that’s all you have time for.” To download the e-book immediately, or to order the paperback, visit and search for “Shades of Souls Passed.”

Honoring our heroes Cub Scouts, 4-H recognize servicemen, women

Cazenovia planning board, conservation commission have openings Submitted by Kristi Andersen Cazenovia Town Councilor

Submitted photo

Cub Scout Pack 54 and New Woodstock 4-Hers learn to fold pocket-sized flags for military personnel. servicemen and women on the front line be reminded of those who care and think about them. The flags are folded as they would be when “the colors� are being retired, for example, at a military funeral.

The children learned that there are 13 folds to complete each flag, which are then placed in a three- by threeinch plastic bag with a note reminding the military personnel that they thank them

and care about them. The children also learned about what an American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary do for veterans as well as active servicemen.

Community Chest awards funds to local nonprofits The United Community Chest of Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson awarded $37,300 in June 2010 to 12 local nonprofit organizations. Founded in 1957 by area civic leaders, the Community Chest raises funds through a fall community-wide annual appeal to support local charities providing services to residents of the region. According to UCC President Phil Willard, the Community Chest is an ideal organization to support for donors interested in seeing their charitable gifts stay local. “As private citizens, we’re bombarded daily with charity appeals,� Willard said. “But it’s not always easy to see how our charitable gifts funnel back to our home

communities. At the Community Chest we do the work for you; asking the difficult questions to make sure donor dollars get the most mileage for folks living right next door.� The United Community Chest is a volunteer organization with a seven-person board. Its only expenses are printing and postage for the annual appeal and insurance. To receive funds, local organizations complete a grant application which the board uses to evaluate competing funding requests and to determine overall annual expenditures. Over the past five years,

t h e C om mu n it y Chest has distributed an average of $45,000 annually. As non-profit agencies face increasing cuts in local and state funding, Community Chest funds are needed now more than ever to bridge the gap. To direct contributions to the United Community Chest of Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson, please mail tax-deductible donation to P.O. Box 73, Cazenovia, NY 13035.

Are you interested in serving your community? The Cazenovia Town Board is looking for a few good neighbors to fill openings on our planning board and on the Cazenovia Advisory Conservation Commission. The planning board (established in 1962) administers the zoning laws of the town and deals with requests for subdivision, site plan review and storm water management. There are seven members, appointed by the town board. Members attend monthly planning board meetings at 7:30 p.m. the first Thursday of the month, and monthly work sessions, in addition to assuming responsibility for managing individual applicants’ files. Being a member of the planning board is definitely an opportunity to get involved in your community in a meaningful way. The Cazenovia Area Conservation Commission was established in 1974 to work in partnership with the town board and the planning board toward the preservation and improvement of the quality of the natural and man-made environment in the town. It provides advice about the environmental impact of proposed developments or buildings. It has seven members, and may be called upon to conduct on-site visits and make recommendations to the planning board. Being a member of the CACC means that you have a direct impact on our community’s environmental health. The town board considers geographical distribution, employment background and special expertise in order to maintain a balance of individuals with diversified backgrounds and concerns, committed to working with their neighbors to preserve, maintain and improve our unique community.

Opinion Editorial

Wishing you safe travels “Have a safe trip!” It’s normal to hear those four words before hitting the road for a family getaway or holiday trip. So, before you load up the car this holiday season to visit loved ones, we have a few suggestions to help make your trip a safe one. ✓ Check tires: Make sure to check the tire pressure and tread depth on each tire, including the spare, when the tires are cold. Also look for uneven tire wear as it can indicate alignment, suspension or wheel balance problems. ✓ Examine wiper blades: Your wiper blades should completely clear the glass with each swipe. Replace them if they leave streaks or miss spots. And don’t forget to top off your windshied washer fluid reservoir. ✓ Inspect the battery: Make sure battery cable connections are tight and terminals are free from corrosion. If the battery is more than three years old, you might want to have it tested to see how much life it has left. ✓ Prepare an emergency road kit: The winter emergency kit should include an ice scraper and snow brush; sand, cat litter, or traction mats; a small shovel; gloves, hats and blankets; flashlight with fresh batteries; paper towels; jumper cables; warning flares or triangles; drinking water; nonperishable snacks; extra warm clothes; first-aid kit; basic hand tools; and a mobile phone and car charger with important numbers pre-programmed, including a roadside assistance provider. ✓ Conduct a vehicle maintenance inspection: Take the opportunity to have your vehicle serviced before a trip, especially is it’s almost time for its scheduled maintenance. Don’t let being unprepared put a damper on your trip. We hope everyone traveling for Thanksgiving and the coming holidays arrives safely at their destination. Happy holidays! Tips courtesy of AAA.

Letters Caz Chamber should withdraw support for rightleaning National Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce has always been a worthwhile organization in supporting local businesses and local business concerns. In this past election, the National Chamber of Commerce supported and heavily donated to the Republican Party. It is time for the National Chamber to come clean on how much it has received from international donors, and how much it contributed to the recent election from members within the United States. When the National Chamber of Commerce takes such a one-sided political stance, it is time to withdraw support for the organization. I urge the local Chamber of Commerce to disassociate themselves from the National organization or watch its members leave one by one. Roger De Muth Cazenovia

Magee thanks 111th Assembly District voters

I will continue to do my best to represent all my constituents’ interests.

Special thanks to the many people who helped in my campaign, placing signs, spreading the word and working at the many activities that make a campaign successful. To help my constituents keep abreast of events in the Legislature over the coming session, I invite you to contact me at mageew@assembly., or call 361-4125 regarding any issues of interest to you. My door is always open. Bill Magee New York State Assemblyman, 111th District

Give the gift of local foods

To the editor: Fellow community members, I am writing to ask each of you to honor your loved ones this holiday season by giving the gift of local food to an emergency food program. The gift of local food benefits many: the hungry, the rural economy, and the local farmer. Also, giving a gift in honor of a loved one is empowering. Hunger is on the rise and the statistics are alarming. In many of our rural communities, an estimated 18 percent of families with small children are living at or below the poverty rate. The Food Bank of Central New York provides over 10 million pounds of food annually, the equivalent of 7.8 million meals – to hungry families, children and the

elderly within eleven area counties ( There are 247 emergency food programs across Central New York in need of your donations. When you give the gift of local foods (or gift certificate for local foods) to an emergency food program, you are giving to your community in many ways: you are ensuring that families eat healthy and nutritious meals. Every dollar you spend for local food goes to a local farmer, and that dollar circulates through your community. Agriculture creates jobs. Using agriculture’s estimated multiplier effect of $2.25 per $1, a gift of $50 for local food translates into a gift of $112.50. A number of emergency food programs accept donations ear marked for local foods. The Taste n See Soup Kitchen in Oxford, NY is just one example. Charles McMullen, the program’s director will provide a letter to the person that you are honoring with your gift. This letter will document where the food was purchased, and how much food was purchased. A true advocate of hunger and the rural community, Charles makes a point of purchasing locally grown foods when possible. There are many ways to donate local foods to food pantries and soup kitchens this holiday season. You can purchase local foods (or gift certificate for local foods) through CNY Bounty ( and have them delivered to the food pantry or soup kitchen of your choice. You can also purchase food directly from a local farm. Senator Tom Libus sponsors a wonderful directory of local farms at If driving to a farm is not in your plans, the Food Bank of CNY ( accepts donations online. I suppose there are alternatives to giving local food this holiday season in honor of your loved ones. You could purchase a plastic toy made in China. This toy will be greeted with a smile and subsequently be recalled due to a high lead content or placed in a landfill once broken. However, experience has taught me that everyone feels better about honoring their loved ones with gift for a good cause. The children with full tummies feel good. The parents regain their dignity and self respect knowing that their children are well fed, and the person with whom you honored with the gift of local food also feels good. Sheila Marshman DepT. Chair and Asst. Professor Morrisville State College

Thanks for a great SADD Leadership Conference

To the editor: On Tuesday Nov. 16, 61 students and their advisors, representing five Madison County High Schools, gathered for the 24th Annual SADD Leadership Conference at the Smithfield Community Center in Peterboro. The day was dedicated to discuss-

ing issue of marijuana and other drugs in our schools. An outstanding panel of experts started the day, discussing their take on the issues at hand, ranging from the growing epidemic of marijuana abuse to prescription drug abuse, to a discussion of the newer synthetic drugs that are now widely available. The rest of the day was spent discussing the material and clarifying what and how these drugs/substances are being abused in the schools. Working with their advisors, each participating school began to formulate an action plan for their student organization to take back to their schools as part of their 2010-2011 effort. Special thanks must be extended to all who participated and made this day a success. Thank you to the Madison County Board of Supervisors for their sponsorship through the County’s STOP DWI Program which organized and coordinated the event. Thanks also to the town of Smithfield for making their Community Center available to us and to the ladies of the Peterboro United Methodist Church for catering a wonderful lunch! Thank you!

Youngs place first N/S, Emerick/Bull place first E/W By Dave Bull We ended November on a blustery, wet, but warm day and 34 players turned out for our duplicate game at the Cazenovia Library. The top four teams on the North/South side were: Jean and Bill Young, 1st;

and Dorothy Colaw in 4th. The group meets at 1 p.m. Tuesdays at the Cazenovia Public Library, usually in the community room. All games are open to the public, but we ask players to come with their own partners. We are not a sanctioned

American Contract Bridge League game by choice, so we don’t give ACBL master points and try to keep it a friendly game. The skill levels of our players vary considerably. Dave Bull is volunteer publicist for the Cazenovia Bridge Club.

Pineapple guava blooms seems to draw farmers and gardeners indoors and with a slack in outdoor work a time for feasting and holidays. A big part of any feast is exotic food and what could be more exotic than, say, the pineapple? Named for its shape of a “pine cone and apple” the pineapple was during colonial times a sign of great hospitality, and soon meant “welcome.” Pineapples were so exotic and expensive that a single pineapple was often rented rather than sold so it could appear at various holiday parties.

The fruits are about the size of a kiwi or lemon, with waxy green skin and pear like texture. The fruit will develop a heady fragrance even before it is ripe.

It flowers in late spring, usually May through June. Pineapple guavas need cool nights to form flowers and fruit. For best results try to grow at least two plants for cross-pollination. Pineapple guava will grow in a wide variety of soils, with the best harvests, with well-drained soil with a pH between 5.5 and 7.0. See Garden, page 14

He was a young man about 19 years of age, and was shivering with the cold, with no overcoat, and bare hands, and ragged clothes with elbows out, who surely seemed an object of charity. The man of the house invited him into the kitchen by the fire, and gave him a warm supper, and when he asked to stay all night, was directed to Mr. Hurlburt. When he got outside another one was waiting for him.

Lucy Shephard is a student in Christie Brenneck’s 10th grade English class. Why is the stereotype for an average American teenage girl to be smart, have flawless skin, fierce facial features, wear a size zero and have a perfect body? Just flip through People magazine, watch a Covergirl makeup commercial, scan “America’s Next Top Model,” or see Barbie or a Bratz doll on a toy store shelf to find your answer. Celebrities seem to be picture-perfect and

teenage girls especially feel the need to be just like them. Often teens have a role model and everything they do is copied and duplicated in their lives, no matter what the cost. If not, people face the fears of not being accepted by their peers and frankly being called a “loser.” Therefore, teenagers turn to eating disorders, suicide or forms of depression because they feel lost and inadequate. In fact, no one’s perfect and everyone has some type of flaw whether you can see it or not. Have you ever walked in

for your first day of school and immediately felt jealous of an outfit someone is wearing, how they did their hair, or their stunning makeup? It’s easy to get jealous, but it becomes dangerous when people take it to the extreme. Some girls feel so insecure about themselves that they would “die” to be someone else. No two people are replicas, not even twins. You are born with unique features and you should love and appreciate them no matter who tells you that you’re just not pretty enough to be See Stereotypes, page 8

Or just looking for some fresh ingredients for tonight’s dinner? The Winter Farmers Market, sponsored by the Cazenovia Chamber of Commerce at the American Legion Hall on Chenango Street in Cazenovia, is the place to go. The first winter farmers market was held Nov. 27, with over 25 vendors who brought out the finest farm fresh foods and local crafts. Both floors of the Legion were filled with locally produced items. From fresh greens, onions, carrots, honey, meats and cheeses to homemade pastas, breads, pies and jams, shoppers were impressed by the bounty of offerings. Local craftsmen brought out clothes, wood products, flowers and gift baskets galore.

Steven Googin played guitar, one lucky shopper won a bag full of prizes from the free drawing held monthly, the chef from the Brae Loch Inn showed how to make a traditional haggis and a chile shrimp, with samples for all. The Golden Pheasant prepared lunch using local foods. The Winter Farmers Market will continue monthly at the Legion. The next market will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday Dec. 18. Once again there will be a featured chef from a local restaurant, door prizes and a wide variety of products offered.

Eating disorders shouldn’t be the norm for women as they struggle to develop a healthy self-image. Why does the media portray only stick-thin females, with no acne, who worked their whole lives to look like that? These women are basically a figment of our imagination, and are a rare find in our society. Most pictures in magazines have been airbrushed severely, have edited blemishes, and hidden flaws with expensive computer technology. In TV shows, actors and actresses are fully covered up with pounds of makeup. These techniques aren’t even portraying the same people anymore. How do you think they feel knowing they aren’t good enough for American audiences? The media should in fact show normal women who make up most of our society. They still have unique characteristics, but they are just happy to be themselves. Amber Riley from “Glee� says that, “I’m still struggling with my size, but not because I’m uncomfortable with it. It’s knowing that other people are!� Everyday teenagers are suffering, so let’s do something about it!

Our youth should be educated on how to fulfill their biggest dreams and solve problems, not worrying about their hair or makeup.

By Doug Campbell Folksmarchers will celebrate the Christmas season beginning in Cazenovia this year, with walks held Dec. 10 and 11. A folksmarch is either a five- or 10-kilometer walk one does at his own pace. “Folksmarchers walk for the healthy benefits of exercise and the social aspects,� said Linda Showens, a Folksmarch organizer. “Many lasting friendships have been formed over the years between people who just met on the trail.� Check-ins will be held between 2 and 5 p.m. Friday Dec. 10 at Dave’s Diner at Common Grounds. They will be held from 8 to 11 a.m. Dec. 11 at the Lincklaen House, with music provided by the Cazenovia High School Chamber Choir from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

Marchers are invited to enjoy a 5k folksmarch around Cazenovia to to take the “woodsy 10k Link Trail.� Folksmarchers ask for voluntary donations of school supplies every August from walkers. Every January they donate hats and mittens, many of them knitted by walkers, to needy children. They have cleaned a highway for a season and donated to the food bank. People who have never been part of a folksmarch before and decide to try it will receive a pin free; a specially designed pin is the reward for every walker. December’s Cazenovia pin has a Christmas theme. The fee to participate is $3.50 for adults and $1 for children. A “passport� costs $2 and allows participants to record walks and places them on the mailing list for a monthly newsletter.

The Cazenovia Area Community Development Association recently kicked off their Green Community Initiative with the new Energy Challenge — the first of its kind in Madison County. Samuel Gordon, NYSERDA Energ y $mart Communities coordinator for the CNY Regional Planning & Development Board, moderated the program, which included experts in residential home performance and renewable energy. Attendees discovered fun (and free) ways to save energy and money on utility bills. “I learned about free energy audits and inexpensive, practical things like changing furnace filters regularly, and paying careful attention to the thermostat. It made me realize how much money I could save if practiced them instead of thinking I would get around to it tomorrow. From my point of view, it was a very productive hour and a half,� said Pringle Symonds. Residents from the village of Cazenovia and towns of Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson will be able to participate in a competition to save energy in their homes from January through June 2011 to determine who will be the “Biggest Loser.� Awards will be given in two categories.

Chittenango, M-E host wrestling openers By Phil Blackwell Area high school wrestling teams beat everyone else in winter sports in terms of starting practice, hitting the mat one full week (Nov. 15) before the others began. This also meant that the first big events of the season belonged to the wrestlers, too. Chittenango and Morrisville-Eaton both hosted meets on Saturday that drew a total of 12 teams. The Bears would finish on top at its own meet, sweeping all five of the opponents it faced as Marcellus, with a 4-1 mark, finished second. To start with, Chittenango disposed of New Hartford 55-22, then handled Whitney Point by a similar 57-24 margin. After routing Red Creek 63-12, the Bears made it

four wins in as many matches by stomping Onondaga 54-13. In the decisive fifth round, Chittenango and Marcellus, both squared off. Though the Mustangs proved tougher than anyone before, the Bears still prevailed, 45-30, to get first place. Morrisville-Eaton’s event also featured Cazenovia – but both sides found themselves trailing Vernon-Verona-Sherrill, who won with a 5-0 sweep as JamesvilleDeWitt/CBA, coached by former M-E star Treavor LeBlanc (son of long-time Warriors coach Duane LeBlanc), went 4-1. The Red Devils tore through the Lakers 52-18, featuring six pins from Brian Ervin (285 pounds), David Rathbun (140 pounds), Aaron Prichard (145 pounds), Lane Frost (160 pounds), Marty Howroyd

(171 pounds) and James Simpkins (189 pounds). Ervin and Simpkins got their pins in less than a minute, and Frost took just 11 seconds to pin Anthony Randino. Cazenovia countered with decisions from Dylan Evans (119 pounds) and Brad Nardella (125 pounds), and Mike Nourse, at 130 pounds, pinning Alex Gilbert in 1:30. The closest match saw VVS’s Kasey Proper, at 112, edge Nick Petroff 6-5. VVS, who started with a 60-10 rout of Cooperstown, went on to take out East Syracuse-Minoa (61-13) and the host Warriors (47-13). In the decisive contest, the Red Devils would hold off J-D/CBA 43-34. Four straight wins by Frost (wrestling at 152), Walts (up at 160 this time), Simpkins (at 171) and Howroyd (189) put the match away.

Canastota also debuted on Saturday, a team newly loaded by the transfer arrival of Anthony Finocchiaro, a two-time Section III Division I champion at Baldwinsville. The Raiders also return Zach Zupan, a state fourth-place finisher at 160 pounds in 2010, and Tyler Sirota, who was sixth in last winter’s state meet at 145 pounds. With all this talent on hand, the Raiders went 4-1 at the Sandy Creek Duals, losing only to the host Comets 39-36 because it had to forfeit each of the last three matches. Otherwise, Canastota beat South Lewis 57-24, topped Carthage 51-22, held off Lowville 48-34 and also beat North RoseWolcott. Joe Tiller took Most Outstanding Wrestler honors on the Raiders’ behalf.

Last chance for tax credit Federal program expires Dec. 31; energy savings won’t Procrastinators, beware. The federal energy tax credit that allows homeowners to qualify for up to $1,500 in tax credit savings when replacing old windows expires on Dec. 31, 2010. However, the day-to-day savings you get from replacing older windows will last for years to come. “Adding energy-efficient replacement windows to a home immediately helps lower everyday energy bills and increases a home’s long-term value and comfort,” saID Tom Kraeutler, host of the national home improvement radio show, “The Money Pit.” “There simply is no better time to take advantage of the government’s incentives to replace your worn-out windows.” Kraeutler notes that fast-acting homeowners can also receive up to $150 toward preparation of their 2010 personal income tax return with H&R Block when they purchase 12 or more qualifying energy-efficient Simonton windows before the end of 2010. “Homeowners can reduce their energy bills, qualify for up to $1,500 in federal energy tax credit with the company’s Energy Tax Credit (ETC) glass packages and get up to $150 toward tax preparation fees when making the decision to invest now in qualifying replacement windows,” said Kraeutler. “Those are three really good reasons to get this project done now.”







In general, if the refrigerator or freezer loses power for two hours or less, then the food inside will be safe to consume. However, it still helps to keep the keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. When the power is out for longer than two hours, different rules apply. If the freezer is half full, food will be safe to consume for 24 hours. If the freezer is full, then the food will be safe for 48 hours. Items in the refrigerator should be stored in a cooler surrounded by ice. Milk, additional dairy products, meat, fish, gravy, and anything that can spoil should all be packed in a cooler of ice if the power is out for more than Please see Lights out, next page

The homeowners of this energy-efficient bay window gained a tax credit from the federal government, financial assistance with preparing their taxes and lower energy bills. “They include exceptional thermal performance, durable recyclable vinyl, low maintenance, and aesthetic appeal - all adding comfort, beauty and energy efficiency to a home.” For a free replacement window guidebook from “The Money Pit,” download myhomemymoneypit. com/your-guide-to-replacing-the-windows-inyour-house.php.

Winter might be a wonderland to some, but for those who prefer a warm, sandy beach over a ski slope, winter is no walk in the park. It’s even worse when a winter storm hits and suddenly everything goes dark. Power outages are impossible to predict. When a power outage occurs, it can last anywhere from a few minutes to several days. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers the following guidelines for making it through a power outage safe and sound.

When to replace windows A former professional contractor, Kraeutler offers weekly advice to homeowners nationwide on home improvement projects. Deciding when to replace windows is a key topic covered on his show. “Products in the home have a distinct lifespan,” said Kraeutler. “After 10 years, windows should be monitored yearly to ensure their performance is holding up. “When a window stops operating correctly, then it’s time to invest in new windows. Vinyl windows and doors specified with a LoE glass package are a viable ‘green’ option offering several distinct advantages.

Seneca Federal is not an average mortgage originator in part, to decide where to price our mortgage rates,” said Tammy Purcell, VP–lending. “We also respond quickly to pre-qualification requests and pride ourselves as local underwriters with timely commitments.” Seneca Federal has never used credit scores as a basis for loan approval but rather base loan commitment on actual consumer credit history. This ‘traditional’ and time-tested practice has worked well for the Association, which has a foreclosure rate near zero percent. “A low foreclosure rate sometimes leads people to ask me if we are risky enough with such a low default rate,” said the president, adding that the low default rate has more to do with the rapport they have made with their customers during the underwriting process and less to do with not taking risk. “Our loans are often tailor-made to our customer’s specific needs and we build a rapport with them from the beginning, indicating that we are on the ‘same side’. We are very thankful when a customer is willing to approach us when they are having difficulty and

two hours. When cooking, use a food thermometer to check the temperature of food before cooking and eating. Any food with a temperature greater than 40 F should be discarded.


The water supply might also be affected during a power outage. It’s always a good idea to keep bottled water on hand in the event of a power outage to avoid consuming any contaminated water, which might be a byproduct of water purification systems not fully functioning because of the power outage. Avoid using potentially contaminated water when doing the dishes, brushing your teeth or preparing food. For parents of young children, it helps to have formula on hand that does not require the addition of water. If tap water must be used, bring the water to a rolling boil for at least one minute. That’s enough time to kill most organisms, including harmful bacteria and parasites.

Hypothermia prevention

While most regions are quick to

restore power, especially harsh storms might make it difficult to restore power right away. An extended power outage could cause chronic hypothermia, which occurs from ongoing exposure to cold indoor temperatures (below 60 F). The elderly are especially susceptible to chronic hypothermia during a power outage, but there are steps everyone can take to stay safe. Family members with elderly relatives who live alone should make every effort to contact those relatives and ensure everything is alright. Make sure the elderly or the ill have adequate food, clothing, shelter, and sources of heat. If necessary, insist elderly or ill friends and family stay over until the power comes back on. In poorly heated rooms, be sure there are enough blankets for everyone. And wear layers of clothing as well as a hat, even when indoors. It also helps to stay as active as possible, as physical activity raises body temperature. For more information on safely making it through a power outage, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at

before the loan is in default and we are able to work with finding a solution to get them through a rough time such as a job loss,” added Purcell. At Seneca Federal you always have the ability to speak directly with experienced loan underwriters who assist you in your mortgage loan application process from start to finish, including servicing throughout the loan. The lending team is carrying on with the philosophy of individualized lending that community banks thrive on. “We are imbedded in our communities and want to offer competitive mortgage, consumer and commercial loan rates for the benefit of our customers,” said Purcell. “We aren’t a ‘cookie cutter’ secondary mortgage market lender. We understand the needs of our communities and want to provide a competitive product.” The mortgage servicing is always retained by us so our customers are assured they will work with us for the life of the loan. One example of a loan that is often tailor-made to a customer’s needs is the construction to permanent financing mortgage loan with one loan closing and a rate that is determined at commitment, before the construction phase. This loan is popular since the rate can’t change when it ‘converts’ to permanent financing later and closing costs are only paid once, upon commitment. The risk of a higher rate later after the house is constructed is removed. Another such tailor-made

ation is not an average mortgage originator but it IS an average community bank,” said Katrina Russo, presidentCEO of Seneca Federal Savings and Loan Association. Sound community bank mortgage lending practices are not the source of problems that have turned the economy on its ear. Rather, the “big” banks who took part in the sub-prime lending with less than qualified applicants is what has contributed to the downturn of the economy. “It’s not all about making a quick buck,” said Russo. “Mainstream America has to start thinking beyond the all mighty buck and remember what is really at the heart of this nation, which I believe is what all communities bank’s thinking boils down to. The dream of homeownership is a dream we help make happen and it can be done in a conservative manner and still render positive results to many.” Seneca Federal is proud to provide traditional, local home town lending with competitively priced mortgage rates. “We look to competitors daily,

Allow the soil surface to dry between waterings and then thoroughly soak the soil. You will want to fertilize pineapple guavas when they are actively growing, from spring to early fall. Use a good organic fertilizer. Stop feeding your plants by early fall so the foliage will have a chance to mature before winter. You will probably only need to prune pineapple guava enough to keep it in bounds. Prune only after flowering, so you do not cut off the new fruits. There are very few problems with diseases or in-

sects. Pineapple guavas are available as houseplants form local nurseries or by mail from specialty greenhouses such as Logees ( or 888-330-8038) or Gurneys ( or 513-354-1491). Celebrate a garden in winter with a pineapple guava and remind yourself that there is a world of garden wonders beyond the windowsill. You may even display your pineapple guava on a cupboard or serving table with a Colonial carving of welcome, the pineapple.
