For some people, the first snowstorm of the year means snow days, hot chocolate and staying inside. But for Nick Borsellino, the white out conditions meant earning a little green on the side. “It’s kind of a funny story,” Borsellino said. “My brother in law gave us his old snowblower. A friend of the family was complaining that she hated getting up early to shovel the driveway to get the ‘plow hump’ out of the way to leave for work. So I jokingly said I would trailer the snowblower to her house and do it for her.” But joke or not, she thought it was a great idea. Borsellino mentioned it to a few other people around town and on Facebook during the first storm of the winter — a storm that led to the first snow day of the year for Cazenovia schools on Dec. 8. He ended up with seven different driveways to snowblow. “A few were one time deals, but I actually have four people who want me to do it during the heavy [storms] for the winter,” he said. Borsellino said that, unlike plows, he can handle smaller driveways and can clear around cars and walkways. For more information, visit

Your Community, Your News,


The Cazenovia Village Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing at 6:45 p.m. Jan. 3 to discuss the possibility of buying a house next to the fire department. In the short term, said Deputy Mayor Kurt Wheeler, the property at 3 Farnham St. would be used for some parking and the house would be used for

training. Eventually, the property might be torn down for more parking, and an eventual fire department building expansion could include sleeping quarters, Wheeler said. The purchase would cost about $110,000, and the village would lose about $800 per year in tax revenue. Members of the public are invited to attend the January public hearing to comment on the idea.

Community News In brief Winter storms hurt blood drive numbers

Early December winter storms in Western and Central New York caused a number of blood drive cancellations and fewer people keeping their appointments. As a result, The Red Cross has experienced a decrease in the local blood supply, especially type O-negative blood. The New York - Penn Region lost over 500 donations initially due to blood drive cancellations, which has contributed to this low inventory level. The Red Cross expected to lose up to another 900 donations by the end of the Dec. 10 through 12 weekend. All blood types are needed, especially type O negative. Type O negative blood donors are encouraged to donate blood as soon as possible. Those who already have an appointment to donate blood, it is important that they keep the commitment to give blood, assuming it is safe to travel. To donate, contact 1-800-733-2767 or visit For donor eligibility questions, call 1-800215-1659.

Bridge results

Salisburys take first place With the snow birds already flown South and the cold snowy weather keeping some of our seniors at home, we were happy to see 24 hardy souls show up at the Cazenovia Library on Dec. 7 to fill 6 full tables of duplicate bridge.

We welcomed first time players, Ann Cross and Teresa Parke, who stayed in Cazenovia for lunch and duplicate bridge after their morning lesson with Barbara Roller and Jane Fuller. Toni and Bob Salisbury showed their old form by winning a squeaker over

He worked closely with Floyd Bennett and Nick Christakos to broker land purchases for the legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baseball/softball fields. After Mr. Christakos and Mr. Bennett passed away, Mr. Costello continued processing ball field contract renewals and supervising needed improvements to these facilities on behalf of the American Legion. Many times he loaned his own money

Opinion Editorial

Coping with grief this holiday season

There is no right or wrong way to handle the holidays. You may wish to follow family traditions, choose to change them, or just do things a little bit differently. HOPE for Bereaved offers the following advice to those grieving the loss of a loved one during the holiday season. Plan ahead: Sit down with you loved ones and talk about what each wants to do for the holidays. Let relatives and friends know your decisions. Shopping: Shop by catalog, phone or Internet. Shop with a friend or ask someone to shop for you. Give gift certificates. Give a donation to a worthy cause in the name of the person who you would give a gift to. Be careful of “shoulds;” do what is most helpful and important to you. Try to put balance in your life; get adequate rest, eat well, build in time to exercise, take a walk, pray, read and relax. Holiday activities: Consider cutting back on baking (buy baked goods or do without), decorating, (use fewer decorations or ask family or friends to decorate, cleaning (top clean, it is not necessary to scrub), cards (send less or not at all). Holiday dinner: You may wish to stay busy fixing a big meal, but consider making some changes. Serving buffet style, eating at a different time or eating in a different room may help. You might consider going to another’s home for dinner. Religious services: Attend at a different time or place. Turn to your faith – try to concentrate on the meaning of the season. Express feelings: Don’t push down tears. Build in a time to cry. Keep a journal. Ask for and accept help: Share your concerns, feelings and apprehensions with an understanding friend. Plan special times with people with whom you are comfortable. Help others: Volunteer at a soup kitchen, visit the lonely and shut-ins. Invite someone who is alone to share the day with you. Provide food/gifts for the needy. And remember you can call HOPE (at 4754673) when you need a good listener, information about support groups, suggestions for coping or to make an appointment for counseling. Help is only a phone call away.

CCH urges support for neighbors helping neighbors

To the editor: The United Community Chest of Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson has launched the Neighbors Helping Neighbors 2010 campaign

drive. During challenging economic times, the mission of the UCC has increasing importance and all donations to their efforts are valued. Each year the United Community Chest provides funds for a wide range of organizations: children and youth (Project Café and others), senior citizens (RSVP, CASA, Madison County Office of the Aging and others) and other individuals in need (Liberty Resources, Arise and others). Cazenovia Children’s House is grateful to be one of the organizations that received funds last year. The funds were used for our tuition assistance fund to help families with emergency or on-going financial assistance for their child’s care and educational program. We are very appreciative of our neighbors who volunteer their time and expertise on the UCC Board of Directors to help our community. We encourage everyone to follow their thoughtful example by donating to Neighbors Helping Neighbors 2010. Penny Noll, CCH Director

Keep your poinsettias growing year after year We got Santa Claus from the Dutch, the Christmas tree from the Germans but America’s only original addition to the Christmas tradition came from a store, the mail order company Montgomery Ward. Robert Mays, an advertising writer for Wards wrote a story in 1939 that turned a deformity into an asset and an outcast into a hero. In 1939 alone, its first year of publication, Montgomery Ward distributed over 2.4 million copies of the now famous story, “Rudolph the Red Barbano Nosed Reindeer.” Robert Mays brother-in-law set the story to music but the garden music publishers wouldn’t touch a children’s story that dealt with deformity. So the song went unsung until 1946 when a woman named Ina was moved by the story and convinced her husband to record it. Her husband introduced “Rudolph” during a rodeo and Gene Autry went on to sell over 25 million copies through the years. Anything is possible during Christmas and the garden is no exception. In 1906 a December blooming Mexican wildflower was put out for sale at a Hollywood flower stand. The brilliant red flowers, actually leaves called bracts, were soon all the rage in California homes. Just as latter day Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer would entrance millions of kids, the once unsought weed with the bright red leaves came to symbolize Christmas in America. It was of course the poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) and thanks to breeding it is now a very manageable houseplant. To keep your holiday poinsettias growing, be sure they are well watered. Check the soil daily, and water whenever the surface is dry to the touch. Water until it runs freely out the drainage hole in the container. If you use a saucer, discard any water that collects in it so that the poinsettia isn’t standing in water. If your plant does wilt, water immediately, then water again five minutes later. Keep your poinsettias near a sunny window where they will get indirect sunlight. Be careful that the plant doesn’t touch the cold windowpane, which could injure it. Maintain a temperature of 65 to 70 degrees during the

daylight hours and, if possible, move it to a cooler place at night but never below 60 degrees. Keep watering the plants regularly until March or April. This is when leaves and bracts will fade and gradually drop off of the stems. Put the poinsettias on their sides in a cool room or cellar until May. Then prune the plants back to just about 4 inches of stem above the pot. Re-pot into the next larger size container and water well. Once new growth begins fertilize with a diluted all-purpose organic fertilizer. After the last frost move the plant pot and all into a lightly shaded location outdoors. In July pinch back the stems so the plants don’t get too leggy. Bring them back into the house in early September. Since poinsettias are short-day plants, they need about 10 weeks of at least 12 hours of darkness to flower. For full flower by Christmas, keep your poinsettias in complete darkness between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. from the first part of October until late November. You can put them in a closet, or cover completely with a box or dark cloth to keep the plants in darkness. Keep the plants near a sunny window in the daytime. Lightly fertilize with a weak organic fertilizer until mid-December, when they will live up to their Mexican name, “Flores de la Noche Buena,” the Flowers of the Holy Night.

Years past In history 125 Years Ago December 17, 1885 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The sod edges of the village streets have been greatly misused by regardless driving of late and even the sidewalks have been cut up by men who do nothing outside their own fences. When a man does a little for the public he commences to respect the work of others. 100 Years Ago December 15, 1910 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mr. E.C. Covell has purchased the negatives taken by R.L. Munger and C.P. Marshall while in business here. The running of all Lehigh Valley trains by telephone instead of by telegraph is expected to be accomplished by January 1, 1911â&#x20AC;ŚNot only will the trains be operated by the telephone system, but each freight caboose and each passenger train will be supplied with a portable telephone set, which can at any time and at any place be connected with the trunk line and communication with the head officers be securedâ&#x20AC;ŚThe portable sets will have a long pole attached to them and by hooking this pole on to the telephone wire, service can be secured at once.

50 Years Ago December 15, 1960 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fred reports that the Village has now decorated three Christmas trees throughout townâ&#x20AC;Śtwo across from Cannon Park and one up by the Fountain. A special meeting of the Cazenovia Central School Alumni Association was held recently, with president Edward Clarke presidingâ&#x20AC;ŚThe purpose of the meeting was to discuss the finances of the Association and to decide the possibilities of continuing the annual banquet. It was a unanimous decision to continue with the banquets and ways of raising money to do so were discussed. The Four and Four, local octette, will be caroling in the village on Monday evening, December 19, between the hours of 7 and 9 pm. A lighted candle placed in your front window will tell them that they may stop and sing for you.

The house highlighted in the Dec. 1 edition of this column, pictured at right, was originally the home of Roswell and Lydia (Dorr) Beckwith at what is now 4622 Syracuse Road. Roswell Beckwith was born in Lyme, Conn. in 1753 and served in the Revolutionary War. He then became a Presbyterian minister but changed to ministry in the Baptist Church. After preaching in Coeymans and Albany, he moved to Cazenovia around 1806. There, Beckwith purchased 179 acres from John Lincklaen, later expanding his holdings on much of the western shore of Cazenovia Lake and Syracuse Road. Roswell and Lydia had seven children: Barak, Roswell Jr., George, Elisabeth, Huldah, Eunice, and James. The property for this week is pictured below.

Since then students have been sharing their youth and energy with the people who live and work in the community. The November and December holiday season is the time when student activities in the community are most noticeable. College students and employees assist members of the Cazenovia Garden Club and other community members in hanging garland, bows and wreaths in the Historic Business District. Through CazCares and the College’s Interfaith and Student Life offices, students, faculty and staff members of the college provide the ingredients for a number of area families’ holiday meals. Each Christmas, a number of students and employees adopt families in need. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee organized a week-long can drive to collect nonperishable items to stock the CazCares shelves for the holiday season. The Cazenovia College Chorale invites members of the community to

This year members of the chorale were present at the village’s tree lighting, and then serenaded shoppers on Albany Street with favorite holiday carols. Employees and faculty donated handmade gift items for a craft fair at the Cazenovia College Art Gallery in Reisman Hall, where shoppers were treated to hot chocolate. Proceeds benefitted the Red Cross “Vaccinate a Village” program, headed by the Human Services Club. Also during the holiday season, students rang bells for the Salvation Army, made and distributed cookies to CAVAC, the fire department and police department, and organized a mitten tree in the college dining hall to collect hats and mittens for needy

children. Students in Associate Professor Jen Pepper’s First Year Seminar, “Chromaphilia,” spearheaded a workshop called “Make a Pillow Give a Pillow.” Students sewed holiday pillowcases for senior citizens at Crouse Community Center Inc., Residential Health Care in Morrisville. Many of the college’s clubs and organizations, as well as individual students, volunteer their time and talents in the community throughout the year. Among their efforts are the Literacy Project, Adopt-a-Highway, the Up ‘til Dawn letter writing campaign for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, meal service at the Rescue Mission, Cell Phones for Soldiers, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, and various sales and drives during the year that benefit other causes. Students organized a purse auction to benefit Community Resources for Independent Seniors, a new program in the Cazenovia community for seniors, and assist with transportation for CRIS members. Students also help organize Red Cross blood donations at the college each semester. The women’s volleyball team’s “Dig Pink” tournament raised more than $3,500 for breast cancer research, and the women’s soccer team, along with a number of other college employees, donated their time to CazCares, helping to sort clothes and prepare the garden for winter.

Morrisville professor earns kudos for entrepreneurial endeavors Morrisville State College Professor Emad Rahim was recently recognized for his entrepreneurial endeavors. Rahim, of Syracuse, assistant professor of entrepreneurship and small business management, received a 2010 Entrepreneurship Teaching Excellence Award from the Experiential Classroom XI Program and has also been named a 2011 Beyster Institute Scholar Fellow. The 2010 Entrepreneurship Teaching Excellence Award, sponsored by Indiana University, the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship and the Riata Center for Entrepreneurship, was presented recently at the Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Rahim received the award after participating in the Experiential Classroom program, which was launched in 2000 as part of the Lifelong Learning for Entrepreneurship Education Professionals partnership to explore the future of entrepreneurship education and address the growing need for high-quality teachers in the field. Throughout the past 10 years,

more than 700 faculty members from around the world have attended the Experiential Classroom, sharing leading-edge teaching practices and enhancing teaching skills. Rahim shares the award, based on entrepreneurial teaching excellence, with two teammates who also participated in the Experiential Classroom program. The Beyster Fellowship Grant encourages entrepreneurship educators to teach tools and techniques that facilitate employee ownership in entrepreneurial ventures. Rahim plans to use the grant money for an entrepreneurial boot camp. In addition to the two awards, Rahim also recently graduated from the Leadership Greater Syracuse Program and received a Congressional Award from Congressman Dan Maffei for community service. A motivating force behind a new program, Morrisville Venture Connects and a partnership with the Tech Garden, Rahim is also the principal consultant and executive advisor for Global i365, a consulting firm that provides business services specializing in the areas of diversity

Want to grow your own native, gourmet mushrooms? The Imaginary Farmer announces growing kits for Central New York strain of mushrooms The Imaginary Farmer, a Hamilton, producer of gourmet mushrooms and mushroom-growing products, recently announced the release of distinctive new mushroom growing kits in time for holiday gift-giving. The kits grow the coveted new Oyster mushroom strain, named Hantana Pearl, that originated in the woods of Central New York. On his farm in Hamilton, owner Owen Tallman found the original wild mushroom, a pale ivory specimen with an unusual, faint rosy hue. Its wild appearance gave no hint of what it would do once cultivated. “It came on strong, sprouting robust, deeply-colored caps. It was fairly astonishing,” said Tallman. It also turned out to have a rich, distinctive, nutty flavor when cooked. Introduced last spring at the Hamilton Farmer’s Market and Circa Restaurant in Cazenovia, Hantana Pearl has quickly become a local favorite. Why grow them at home? Production of fresh Hantana Pearl is limited, so mushroom lovers may find it hard to locate them in stores or in restaurant dishes. “We want to let more mushroom lovers experience Hantana Pearl and the home growing kits are a great way to do that,” said Tallman. What’s more, he said, growing Hantana Pearl is easy and fun. And this particular mushroom

does something unusual that you can only see if you grow it. As the little mushroom pinheads start to sprout, they produce pink dewdrops. “We say it cries pink tears,” added Tallman. The kits come in two forms: Ready-to-Pop and Grow-it-Yourself. The Ready-to-Pop kit arrives with instructions and is ready to produce mushrooms within days. The customer just opens the bag, gives it light and waters it. The price for the Ready-to-Pop kit is $25. The Grow-it-Yourself kit makes a real indoor gardening or science project: it provides the raw materials, including live Hantana Pearl spawn, and detailed instructions, and the customer provides water, some coffee grounds, and hydrogen peroxide. The mixture goes into the included growing bag, and in a few weeks mushrooms will sprout. The price for the Grow-it-Yourself kit is $15 ($17 gift-boxed, shown above). “Our customers, particularly the gardeners and fresh food enthusiasts, Mature Hantana Pearl specimen ready for harvest. really like the Grow-it-Yourself kit Hantana Pearl is a clone of a wild Pleurotus because you experience the whole process from ostreatus specimen, a species grown and enjoyed scratch,” Tallman said. “Even children who say world-wide. It is not a “wild” mushroom, as it is they don’t like mushrooms tend to change their now cultivated and distribute it commercially. minds when they grow their own.” Hantana Pearl has a stronger, richer flavor With either kit, when the mushroom “pinthan many commercial oyster varieties and heads” start to form, they “cry pink tears.” compares favorably with shiitake, portabella and Hantana Pearl growing kits are available at other strongly flavored mushroom species.

About Lessons & Carols We are embarking together on one of the two great cycles of the liturgical year; Advent leads to Christmas, which leads to Epiphany. At St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church in Cazenovia, we mark the season with

several special services, including the traditional Advent Service of Lessons & Carols held Dec. 12 at the RITE II Service at 10 a.m. The service focused on Advent and included Biblical readings as well as Congregational carols and Anthems, sung by St. Peters Choirs. The Adult, Youth and Bell choirs are directed by Ida Tili Trebicka, Music Director, along with Kristy Labbate, Youth Music Minister, and April Roberts, Bell Choir Leader. The service of Christmas Lessons & Carols, which has flourished most famously at Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College, Cambridge since 1918, is popular throughout the world. The story began in 1880 in the three-year-old diocese of Truro in the southwest of England. There was a local tradition of the choir going from house to house

Basketball Lakers split with Ludden


Ludden, who had moved down from Class A to the OHSL Liberty division, was determined to show that it was ready to return to its traditional winning ways. Before the new-look Lakers could get settled, Ludden had run out to 243 lead, and the margin kept growing over the next three periods. Ben Romagnoli led Cazenovia with just five points as Ludden saw Kelly Beaudoin hit five 3-pointers on his way to 17 points on the night. Both Cazenovia sides had games snowed out against Westhill earlier in the week, and both would take on Skaneateles Tuesday as the Laker teams got together.

In vastly different manners – and with vastly different expectations the Cazenovia basketball teams began their respective 2010-11 seasons once the snow stopped. The girls Lakers, Section III Class B champions in 2009, almost reached that level again a season ago, losing a close 35-33 decision to eventual champion South Jefferson in the quarterfinals. From that group, head coach Steve Miles has a strong returning cast, including Ashley Stec, Ellen Burr, Taylor Malmsheimer, plus some more depth that it had last winter as Miles has expanded his roster to 11.

All this was on display in Friday’s opener, when Cazenovia went to Bishop Ludden and dispatched the Gaelic Knights 65-38. Granted, the task was made easier by Ludden seeing star guard Ashley Cianfriglia transfer to Westhill (in the wake of a coaching change), but it was still a dominant effort. Back home at Buckley Gym, the Cazenovia boys basketball team met a far different ending against Ludden, losing to the Gaelic Knights 66-26. The new coach for the Lakers is a familiar name – Paul Harney, who had coached the Cazenovia girls to much success before Miles took over. Harney did not get an easy first assignment, as

It helps, in that quest, to have most of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster back, including a high-flying attack anchored by the likes of Sean Cannizzaro, Connor Cannizzaro, Sam Lewis, Joe Nardella and Brian Gara. That focus has not been deterred by the massive realignment taking place

Three Madison County 4-H youth attend Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup




Aro-Graph Corp.

Three youth from Madison County traveled to Louisville, Ky. in early November to compete at the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup in Horse Judging. Over 350 contestants from 30 plus states participated this year. 17 were from New York. To qualify for this event, local youth competed first at the regional level and then went on to State Competitions at Cornell and the NYS Fair. HorseBowl, Communications and Hippology contests are also part of the Roundup. Several youth qualified to represent the NYS 4-H Horse Program and placed in the top 10 in the nation: Abigail Marcy, Nicole Tubbs and Shawna Kimberly were members of the NYS 4-H Horse Judging Team. The team won the senior contest at states and as individuals these youth placed in the top 4 in the state. At Nationals, they judged eight classes total, including four halter classes and four performance classes. They then gave three sets of oral reasons to the official judges justifying their placings. As a team they finished seventh in the performance division and 11th overall.

Good Samaritan Award “One of the highlights of our trip was Abby being voted, by her peers, as the NYS 4-H Horse Program Perpetual ‘Good Samaritan’ Award recipient in honor and memory of Laura Beth Janson,” said 4-H representatives in a news release. “This award was created by Jeannie Griffiths, the NYS Horse Specialist, and is given on the bus as the state teams return home. Any of the 17 NYS participants competing at the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup in Horse Communications, Horse Bowl, Hippology and Horse Judging are eligible for this award. Congratulations Abby!” The 4-H youth development program provides opportunities for all youth ages 5-19 to participate in “innovative, fun programs” through which they develop life skills. 4-Hers learn valuable skills, have fun, make new friends, solve problems, earn awards, practice citizenship, develop leadership abilities and make a difference in their communities. For more information about 4-H, contact the Madison County 4-H office at 6843001 or visit
