Historical society transforms old boiler plant into Boat Museum; still needs your help By Ellen Leahy

SKANOPOLY Business & education partner to produce Skaneateles game; hits local stores this week

The original Monopoly game was called the Landlord’s Game. It was designed by Elizabeth Magie Phillips to teach people about the power of monopolies. It spread to different areas of the United States, which cooped the game as their own. Charles Darrow played the Atlantic City version, which he brought to game maker Parker Brothers in 1934. It was rejected, so Darrow, being out of work because of the Great Depression, produced 5,000 handmade sets of the game. It became so popular, he couldn’t keep up with production, and seeing his success, Parker Brothers now wanted in on the action. In its first commercially manufactured year, 1935, it was the best selling game in America and still has a stronghold as a prominent game played worldwide with many versions. But not until this week, had it been designed around Skaneateles. This version is called Skanopoly. It’s being brought to you by the Skaneateles Education Foundation (SEF), which has partnered with Skaneateles businesses. This lesson in economics is being used to raise funds for education opportunities for Skaneateles Central School (SCS) students, while also promoting and driving traffic to local businesses. SEF Foundation Director, Sharon Magee said board member Miki Mahood had

seen in it used in Bronxville. “We did our dueo diligence, and it made sense because we have a visual town, a close knit community and it was a project we could partner with businesses in town,� Magee said. Skaneateles merchants are tapped all the time to support local fundraisers, which they do endlessly. But here was an opportunity to give a little extra back, Magee said, by naming the properties and other components of the game after them and also selling it through the local retail outlets.

This is one you have to see to believe. During the worst of economic times the Skaneateles Historical Society (SHS) is transforming its property into an even more fitting tribute to the industry and culture of Skaneateles’ citizens. At the SHS’s Creamery Museum, yesterday meets today to tell Skaneateles’ stories into the future. And, it starts with its handsome physical plant, designed pro-bono by local architect Robert “Bob� Eggleston. It includes the renovation of the old boiler room and a new connective corridor to the Creamery that will serve as the main entrance while also housing displays. The initial structure is a renovation of the old creamery on the corner of Fennell and Kelley streets. Like the I.M. Pei designed Everson Museum Building in Syracuse, this building is every bit a marvel as are the artifacts and historical records it holds. See Historical Museum, page 5

“At the end of the day, this needs to be playable.�

Sharon Magee

“We knew we wanted to produce 1,000 games, and to do that, we needed to raise all of the production costs from sponsorships, totally born on the backs of the sponsors,� she said. “It’s a beautiful model, you don’t want to use donor donated dollars to fund this type of fund raiser.� They were initially sent the Birmingham, Alabama version of the game that was See Skanopoly, page5

Lakers soccer take a time out to celebrate their win before heading to Saturday’s Class B regional final against Section IV champion Trumansburg in Oneonta. Whoever wins that contest heads to Middletown for the state final four on Nov. 20 to 21.

By Phil Blackwell

Two months of anticipation - and the victories gained on both sides - led up to the 80 minutes the undefeated Skaneateles and Clinton boys soccer teams spent on the turf at Chittenango High School in last Friday night’s Section III Class B championship game at Chittenango High School. And the result delighted every single partisan in blue and gold. The Lakers withstood the chilly temperatures, cold precipitation and vaunted Warrior defense, using a deadly combination of speed and skill to prevail 2-0 and earn its second sectional champion-

ship in three years. Many of the stars on the Skaneateles squad were there in 2008 when, on this same Chittenango turf, it beat South Jefferson 3-0 for the sectional title. But a loss to Marcellus in the ‘09 finals made them hungry again - as 18 consecutive victims found out prior to the sectional final. Of course, Clinton, absent a title since 2006 (when it beat Skaneateles 1-0 at SUNY-Cortland), had its own sterling mark of 18-0, built mostly by a stifling defense that limited opponents to a grand total of five goals prior to this showdown with the Lakers. With all the elements in

place (not to mention some real weather elements), Skaneateles attacked Clinton early, setting up a series of chances that, while not instantly successful, gave the Lakers a reason to think that it could solve the Warriors’ defensive riddle. The answer, as it turned out, was a Laker trademark - the throw-in near the net, executed to perfection in the 28th minute. Mike Richards threw it from the sideline, and Kevin Rice poked it to A.J. Richichi, whose header tumbled into the net. That 1-0 margin held until the second half, as Clinton found itself rarely able to get anything past the Lakers’ tough back line of Richards,

Tim Lewis and Zach Brownlee. Trevor Diamond only had to make five saves, and got aided by a friendly crossbar on Clinton’s best shot attempt, by Will Smiegal. Skaneateles got its insurance goal came in the 50th minute when Spencer Parker, the Lakers’ leading scorer down the stretch, offered a feed to Jeff Baldetti, who flicked it past Clinton goalie Rob Larkin. Overall, Larkin made 16 saves, keeping things close, but not getting much of a chance to regroup as the Lakers expertly protected its twogoal lead and breezed toward the sectional title. Skaneateles advanced to next Saturday’s Class B re-

gional final against Section IV champion Trumansburg in Oneonta. Whoever wins that contest heads to Middletown for the state final four on Nov. 20 to 21. To set up this season-defining showdown, the Lakers first had to get past no. 5 seed Westhill in the Class B semifinals last Tuesday night. Playing on the turf at Marcellus High School, Skaneateles beat no 5 seed Westhill 3-0, marking the third time it has knocked off the Warriors this fall. In those previous meetings, the Lakers had prevailed 4-3 on Sept. 14, a backand-forth affair where top defender Tim Lewis sat out due to injury, and 5-1 on Oct.

News from the Skaneateles Outreach Office

When everyone forgets how to drive.

Loan closet to fall under Outreach ample umbrella By Pat Snyder and Jacque McConnaghy Outreach Coordinators for the town of Skaneateles. In 1960 the Skaneateles Women’s Fireman’s Auxiliary started the Loan Closet. Since then it has been a valuable service for residents when they need medical equipment. With the closing of the dispatch office, the Auxiliary concluded that it could no longer administer this service. A number of residents expressed concern that the Loan Closet would be no more. The Outreach Office seems like a natural fit to succeed the Auxiliary and oversee the Loan Closet as it is similar to other services offered by Outreach and could easily be absorbed into our program. The Town Board is working on finding a new location for the Loan Closet as the Fire Department has indicated that it can no longer be housed at the Fire Hall. It is our hope that we will have it up and running in the near future. If you are in need of anything from the Loan Closet call 685-0427 and we will make every effort to fill your request. With the addition of the Loan Closet the Outreach Office now has four programs we manage, Outreach, Helping Hands, Salvation Army and the Loan Closet. Each of these programs provides a different service for the community. Outreach is here for any member of the town of Skaneateles or Skaneateles School District that finds they are experiencing difficulties and need assistance. We help people

navigate difficulties in life matching them with an agency that can assist with their needs. Helping Hands confidentially and anonymously aids children in the School District who are in need. The fund has supported tutoring, counseling, school trips, musical instrument rentals, participation in sports and admission for community sponsored events and activities. The fund has also provided clothing, winter coats, eyeglasses, school supplies and Christmas gifts. Recipients are determined by the school principals, counselors, nurses and teachers. The Outreach Office also works with the Salvation Army to administer the funds collected in the “Red Kettle Drive” held in our community during the holiday season. These funds are used year round for residents in the community in need. In the past we have used this fund for many things including winter coats, heat, medicine, emergency housing. Did you know that 90% of the money collected in the Red Kettles remains right here in our community? All these valuable services are funded by the generosity of members of the community and local businesses. If you would like make a donation checks can be made out to Skaneateles Outreach or Helping Hands. Mail to: Skaneateles Outreach, 24 Jordan Street Skaneateles, NY 13152. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance call us at 685-0427.

5, where Skaneateles had four unanswered goals in the first half to take charge. This third, and most important, encounter followed the pattern of the second game, with Skaneateles putting together its usual amount of bold attacks, combining it with a superb defensive effort that never allowed Westhill more than a handful of chances. By halftime, the Lakers led 2-0, and it would tack on one more goal in the late going. Rice, Brownlee and Jeff Baldetti each had one goal, with Richichi and Ryan Farrell picking up assists. Diamond stopped all five shots he faced.

Celebrate our veterans

World War I, known at the time as “The Great War,” officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, Nov. 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.” In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…” A legal holiday dedicated to the cause of world peace, this day was celebrated and known as “Armistice Day” as of May 13, 1938. However, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history, and after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars. The observance of Veterans Day on Nov. 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls, preserves the historical significance of the date and helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. Celebrations to honor our veterans will take place across the country this week. While appreciation for our veterans should be shown every day of the year, be sure to take the time to thank those who have protected and continue to protect our freedoms.

Marijuana is risky business, risky recreation

By Marcy Weed I grew up with the last name of Weed and as you can imagine I received my fair share of comments about that name. My first professional job was as a counselor in an elementary school. There my name was thought of as “the stuff in gardens.” That was before accepting a position as a substance abuse counselor in a middle school and high school. Now I tell the kids I work with that my name is perfect for my job, an ice breaker into a discussion of substance abuse. But when did the word “weed” go from being a gardening term to a drug reference? When is a joke about my name not really funny? Marijuana is a serious drug that can have significant and long standing side effects for people who abuse it. According the 2008 NYS Youth Developmental survey, about 22 percent of the surveyed Skaneateles students admitted to using marijuana (one time or more) which was

just under the county result of 25 percent. I wanted to focus on another aspect that the survey questioned our students about. Students were asked about their own perceptions of risk in regards to the use of marijuana as well as their opinion of their parents’ perception of danger. While 50 percent believed marijuana was dangerous they understood that 94 percent of their parents disapproved of marijuana use. In other words, student had received the message that their parents thought marijuana was dangerous but they were unconvinced. So what does this result tell us? I believe it reinforces parents that their message about the dangers of substance use and specifically marijuana is getting through. The other side is that there still needs to be a focus on education of dangers as well as some counter balance to the “positive” or “harmless” peer message students seem to be receiving. This positive message persists even in the face of the education that is given to students through years of health classes and the STARS program. Students often mention that marijuana is “all natural” as a positive reason for use, so are many poisons that most people would not consider ingesting such as arsenic. In addition, there is no way to know what is in the marijuana a person

obtains. A major concern today is that marijuana is being laced with PCP or even formaldehyde. The side effects of this laced marijuana can be life threatening. Unlaced marijuana has serious side effects as well. Short term memory problems, a motivational syndrome, anxiety and even paranoia are just some concerns. In addition, the marijuana that is being grown and sold today is a stronger drug than what was grown years ago. THC, the chemical in marijuana that causes the physical and mental effects, has been altered to be in higher concentrations in today’s marijuana plant. It is a drug that significantly alters a person mood and/or behavior. Why are teens willing to accept these side effects and discount the dangers simply because “friends are doing it” or “it looks cool?” I do not have a final answer about how to lessen the peer message, however I do believe the survey results show us we are making an impact. Continue to talk to your teens about your understandings of the dangers of marijuana use. Allow your child to share what they believe and/or have heard. Non-judgmental facts and education are the best counter a parent has to address the idea that marijuana “is cool.” If you have any questions or concerns contact Marcy Weed, Prevention Counselor, ADA-PEP at

so loaded with advertisements that the SEF Foundation board felt it was disruptive to playing the game. “At the end of the day, this the game needs to be playable,” Magee said. “So we tried to minimize text on the board and preserve as much white space as we could.” Pictures on the outside of the box sold for $1200, with names on the board going for at $120 to $800. Additional patrons who wanted to participate are listed in the official instructions booklet, along with contact and location details of the major sponsors. Everything on the game is customized to Skaneateles, right down to the Community Cards. Already historical Skanopoly memorializes Jan and Larry Loveless’ version of Krebs Restaurant, as the late Jan Loveless had readily agreed when presented the project. “It was a real honor to have the opportunity to talk to Jan Loveless before she passed,” Magee said. “She was real lovely and said, ‘sign me up!’” The Skaneateles Chamber of Commerce purchased the illustrious and high priced Boardwalk, which they dedicated to Karen Foltz, the late owner of Pomodoro I and II, who had been the Chamber president. When Joe Panzarelli of Imagine and Imagine That heard the Chamber was going to sponsor Boardwalk to honor Foltz, he said, “I want to be right next-door, give me Park Place.” Skanopoly has a $500 bill in its bank. An anonymous donor, paid to have the former Morris’s Grill on the $500. The $500 bill is no longer in circulation and either is Morris’s. “We feel the game is blessed by all these people, and is a slice of history before it was is even released,” Magee noted Who else is on the game? Well, you’ll just have to see this for yourself. The game is available at Creekside, First National Gifts, Imagine, Kinder Garden, Riddlers, The Sherwood Inn Gift Shop, Skaneateles Artisans, Skaneateles Chamber of Commerce and Skaneateles Town Square/Ace Hardware. The game will cost $30. What is the SEFEducation Foundation? “With the creation of the Skaneateles Education Foundation (in 2008) Skaneateles has joined a growing number of creative communities in the United States that seek different funding sources to bridge the gap between school budgets and funds necessary to provide an exceptional public education. The Foundation will allow individuals, philanthropists, corporations and others the opportunity to put their donations in a place that gets to the heart of what many believe is the key to the

foundation of our country: our schools.” from the website. The Skaneateles Education Foundation was established as a not for profit to solicit and manage charitable contributions and bequests for the benefit of student education in Skaneateles. This means money raised will be invested and the Foundation will use interest earned to support its goals. SEF purpose is to supplement, not supplant, state and local public funding. Instead its efforts are directed at enhancing the quality of a SCS education, by strengthening the curriculum and expanding the resources available to students and faculty. For example, a seventh grade teacher, came from a Durham school district, which had used a polydrawnon manipulatives to aide student learning in pre algebra. Through a grant, Tthe SEF Foundation purchased a set for both of our the seventh grade pre algebra teachers at a cost of $800. In the high school all the pre-engineering courses participation e in Rochester Institute of Technology’s and designed around “Project Lead the Way.” They do S Science, Technology, Engineering and Math teaching (STEM) skills. SCS students used German made Fischertechnik components to create real world assembly lines, but the real world has changed - and now hydraulics, pneumatics and nanotechnologycontrol systems are employed. So, SEF the Foundation donated granted the $1,400 to upgrade these practice technologies. And, SEF the Foundation doesn’t just promote STEM, it also donated provided a grantmoney for the middle school and high school music department directors to go to a professional development conference on musical theater, which is an art form truly unique to America. “They were on fire with ideas upon their return,” Magee said, adding that the Foundation SEF requires all grantees to do a written evaluation or to make a presentation. “We have very strict accountability to assure the greatest good can come from our donor’s dollars.” Go to FAQ, html for more information or contact Fun facts about Monopoly:

The crew The steering committee consisting of Eggleston, David Miller, Karlene Miller, Joe Spalding, Bill Stinson III, Bent Thomsen and Joan Thomsen focused on the project for the museum’s board of directors and honorary co-chairs, William F. Allyn, Lew F. Allyn and Elsa Soderberg. Every detail has been well attended to, including workmanship, materials, display space and traffic flow while also stabilizing the creek bank where the museum sits. The structure not only will feature a two story boat display with mezzanine, but also updates the historical research center, the gift shop, artifact storage, other display spaces and administrative offices. Suffice it to say, the late notorious town historian, Don Stinson, would be gushing with approval. “The mezzanine allows you to get up in the air to view the boats,” Bent said, “Giving you a different perspective.” The archive room will now be housed in a former ice house of the old creamery. It is being dedicated to longtime archivists, Ted Prindle and Jim Dougherty. Dave Miller is working on an interactive digital display of the lake to be housed in the boating section. Many others have given of their time and expertise including the Patrick Brothers, Roger and Allan, from Leo’s Body Shop.

But additional funds are still required to finalize the project. The SHS is hoping residents and lovers of Skaneateles will donate money at the end of this calendar year to complete the project. This can be easily accomplished with a simple donation or the purchase of an engraved paver brick. The pavers will go into a new walkway in front of the Creamery that will complete the center’s landscaping. Examples of the pavers are on display at the Creamery. People are using this to pay tribute or to even memorialize a loved one. Three local dogs already have pavers including the late Skaneateles Press Dogs, Grace and Mr. Lemon. For more information call 685-1360 or stop by the Creamery. And consider that the Skaneateles Historical Society is a 501©3 not-for-profit organization, making your donation qualify as a tax deductable contribution.

The senior citizens who attend the special luncheon at Skaneateles High School each year are eager to hear the stories of the National Honor Society students who serve them. But each of the seniors also has a story to tell, and some share what they are thinking as they sit in the Commons and eat lunch, or as they stroll down the hallways before attending a sneak preview of the fall musical. One man walked up to thank staff members after the lunch and said enthusiastically before turning to walk out at a fast clip: “I graduated from this school in 1936!” Another senior citizen, Ernest Santariello, 87, talked enthusiastically all the way from the Commons to the auditorium, where he joined others to watch the high school drama club perform “It’s a Wonderful Life.” He said the school district should

And liking school naturally helps students do better, he said. “If they like what they are doing, they do it better.” He thinks that a good education here led his children to more education, and into careers they like. “You need to do a job that you like, and you will do well,” he said.

Allyn on Allyn Part II:

By Ellen Leahy


The late William Pilgrim, left, and Bill Allyn worked on the engineering side of Welch Allyn together. Pilgrim earned several patents during his tenure at WA. Pilgrim was installed as an inaugural member of the Welch Allyn’s Hall of Fame. imagine a lightbulb being at the end of those; light bulbs get hot,” Eric said. He said his father and many of the other engineers up at Welch Allyn, were very creative, always trying to think of new uses for new technology. “Bill once again said (you probably can tell my dad is my hero), we have to be able to use these lights and fibers for other things,”

Eric said. At that time IBM computers used a punch card that would have an array of 12 lightbulbs that would switch on and off — shedding light through the punches in the cards. “My dad went to IBM and said ‘get rid of those 12 lightbulbs, I can replace them with one lightbulb and a bundle of fiber optics,’” Eric said, and then we

Still, the company kept the video technology, and would have some success in different markets with video in the 1990s. That’s when Peter Soderberg joined his two brothers-in-law at Welch Allyn, and they started a new company to make industrial endoscopes. Consider also in the 1980s, WA ran out of parts of the body to look into. So the challenge was: what other applications could these technologies be used for? That’s when the company decided to make other hand-held medical devices, to test hearing, middle ear function, and vision. See Allyn part II, page 8

The 1960s brought new technologies to Welch Allyn as well as Bill and Lew Allyn into leadership roles in the family business. “My father joined the company,” Eric said. “He’s a great businessman and a really good engineer,” Meanwhile, Lew went into the sales and marketing side, and spent years building the company’s international sales network. “Today, the company has Lew to thank for the fact that 35 percent of its sales are overseas,” Eric noted. Bill experimented with fiber optics, creating the fiber optic Laryngoscope, which is the tool used to look down a person’s throat into their stomach, and the fiber optic otoscope, which looks into the ears. A problem arose when they needed to design a device to look into the other end of the alimentary canal. “Remember those instruments we are not talking about (Sigmoidoscopes),

icans were obsessed with Japanese companies. A group of Japanese companies controlled the flexible endoscope market. They made scopes for the stomach and GI tract, which used fiberoptics to produce an image in an eyepiece. “My dad learned that Bell Labs had invented Charged Coupled Device (CCD), and he, together with a group of engineers, decided to develop the world’s first video endoscope. It was a highly improbable endeavor – this small company in upstate New York revolutionizing the medical world with such an invention.” Not only could the doctor look inside the stomach and colon with this camera, but also put the pictures up on a screen in real time, and record the process. There were a lot of talented guys working with Bill, such as Rich Newman, Ray Lia and Dom Danna. “We truly changed the world with video endoscopy,” Eric said. The world was shocked, so much so that at the 1982 DDW trade show the president of Olympus Japan bowed to Bill Allyn and said, “You caused me great difficulties.” “We had a great technology,” Eric said, “but we didn’t have the marketing, sales force and service organization to effectively sell a $40,000 piece of

AMH Medical Staff notes Foresman named president

Dr. William Foresman

The Auburn Memorial Hospital (AMH) Medical Staff has named Dr. William Foresman as President of the Medical Staff. Dr. Foresman earned his medical degree at SUNY Health Science Center, Syracuse, and completed a Residency at Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester. He is a past president of the Cayuga County Medical Society. He is Board Certified in Urology and joined the AMH Medical Staff in 1998. He has served as a member of the AMH Board of Trustees and serves on the Board of Auburn Hospital System Foundation. He is also a member of the American Urological Association and the Medical Society of the State of New York. He practices at Lake Region Urology in Auburn.

Duckett, D.O., joins as Hospitalist

Auburn Memorial Hospital (AMH) has added Dr. Adam Duckett to its Medical Staff as a Hospitalist. Duckett completed his Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) degree at University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, Maine. His Residency was in Family Medicine at St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, Syracuse. He is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Allyn Part II  1990s Eric joined WA full time in 1990, having spent his student summers working for the family company beginning in 1982. As the company continued to develop new handheld diagnostic instruments, it was decided that acquiring other companies made a lot of sense – especially companies that made other hand-held instruments. This helped round out Welch Allyn’s product line to doctors.  WA first acquired a company that made blood pressure cuffs in Ashville, NC, then a thermometer manufacturer in San Diego,CA and a hearing testing company in New Hampshire. These were not hostile take-overs; these were companies being sold through leverage buyout firms, or

From page 7 because their owners were ready to sell. “We are not hostile in an acquisition,� Eric said. “We sent a great guy, Doug Linquest (whose wife and mother law are here tonight!), out there to San Diego,� Eric said to run the thermometer company (Doug later moved to Oregon to run another Welch Allyn plant in Beaverton). The thermometer required a cover for the probe, which had to be disposable. “And, believe it or not, we make 5 million probe covers every day at our manufacturing sites,� Eric said. Peter Soderberg (husband of Lew and Bill’s sister Elsa) joined Welch Allyn in 1993.  For the next decade, Bill, Lew and Peter brought a great combination of


engineering, sales and marketing to the company.  Growing too big By the mid 1990s WG was out of the day-to-day business and the company was getting a little spread out.  “We had a medical business, a lighting business, a bar code business, and several video businesses.  It was tough for each business to get enough focus,� Eric said. In 1999, WA had a great barcode scanner, but it became too big of a department to stay within WA. It spun off into a new company called Handheld Products, which grew until it was sold in 2007 to Honeywell. Honeywell took half those jobs and moved them over to China. “It was a sad day for

many people – including my dad - when Honeywell moved those jobs,� Eric said. Welch Allyn also sold its video business to General Electric in the early 2000s.  GE continues to have a strong presence in Skaneateles Falls. Both of these “spin-offs� have allowed Welch Allyn to grow its core Medical business.  “When you see Welch Allyn’s current $35 Million expansion, you’ll see that the company has been able to really focus on expanding its core Medical business,� Eric says.  “These spin-offs have allowed Welch Allyn to make further investments in its core Medical business.�

The 11 members of the fourth generation still want to stay family owned, but they didn’t want to have ‘cousin or sibling rivalry’ affect the business, so they agreed, it needed to be led by someone other than a family member. That is when Julie Shimer Ph.D, was named CEO and an executive team was hired, three years and six months ago. “That took some maturity on my generation’s part,â€? Eric said. After 20 years working as an executive at WA, Eric thought he might be more effective on the board of directors. “I don’t have to do the budget and all the planning,â€? Eric said, acknowledging “Smilingâ€?

M&T Bank appointed Stephen Gorczynski as Administrative Vice President of Commercial Banking. In his new role, Gorczynski will oversee the bank’s commercial and industrial, health-care and non-profit lending segments throughout Central New York. Gorczynski returns to M&T from HSBC Bank, where he was Senior Vice President and Regional Commercial Executive. Prior to that, he was Vice President and Relationship Manager for M&T Bank (OnBank) from 1993 to 2002. “Steve brings to the group more than 17 years of commercial lending experience,�

kids go to school here with everyone else, we don’t think of people in terms of dollar signs.â€?  Q&A highlight During the Q&A, Suanne Hopkins of Mariettasaid that during the early 1950s Eric’s grandfather came to visit her family because her father, the late William “Billâ€? Pilgrim (Aug. 1, 2010), wanted to join WA as an engineer. “They came to the house to interview,â€? Hopkins said, adding that it was very daunting as a little girl. She brought pictures of her father and some of the plaques he earned for engineering feats, as he who did go to work for WA and earned several patents. He worked for WA for more than 20 years and was installed as an inaugural member of the Welch Allyn’s Hall of Fame. Eric said, Companies like us have always had big sales meetings, but there wasn’t as much focus on engineer’s accomplishments, so we started an awards ceremony to recognize the many accomplishments. “We were prolific in technologies,â€? Eric said. There was a focus on developing these technologies and then perhaps finding a use. Now WA is more concerned with what the customer needs first.   Eric can remember saying to his father, “Dad, you just don’t know that you can’t do these things‌and that’s why you can do it.â€?

Attic exhaust fan Many attics are equipped with an exhaust fan to vent hot air from under the roof. Animals can scurry through the opening of the exhaust pipe and into the attic itself.

Chimney A professionally installed chimney cap or a mesh hardware cloth can keep animals out of the chimney -- a common entry place. Animals can transmit diseases through their droppings and block the release of smoke in a chimney, which are two potential hazards. A securely fitting cap or mesh covering can keep animals outdoors. Do not use window-screening material as it will clog with soot and other debris causing a fire hazard.

ildlife, such as mice, squirrels, chipmunks, bats, and birds may see your home as a quiet, safe and dry retreat anytime during the year. However, when the cooler weather arrives, and animals are looking for burrows and nests to weather out the chill, your home may be especially attractive. An autumn project to undertake should involve keeping unwanted wildlife out of the house. A home presents a number of entry points for animals. Having an animal nest or live in your home can be unsanitary and potentially dangerous -- especially if you startle an animal or if they block the release of smoke or exhaust from the house. Examining potential entrances and closing them up is key to keeping animals out.

Camping World’s RV sales event set for Nov. 10-14 To be held at off-site location at New York State Fairgrounds Camping World RV Sales begins their big RV sales event today through Sunday Nov. 14 at their off-site location at the NYS Fairgrounds in Syracuse. “We’ve got something for everyone,” said Ed Forget, general sales manager. “Coleman Travel Trailers start at $98 a month, for example. We have travel trailers to high end diesel motor homes. We’ll take almost anything on trade – now is -Kevin Bostrom, Camping definitely the time World regional vice president to buy, and interest rates are low.” The four-day event will draw buyers from all over the state. Sale hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

“We have 218 tradeins from our recent show in Hershey, PA.”

“You’ll find what you’re looking for at this event,” said Kevin Bostrom, regional vice president. “We’ll have 218 Hershey, PA, show trade-ins. This is an excellent time to start enjoying the RV experience.” “Camping is great family fun – and the memories will last a lifetime. Kids will remember the great times they had camping with family and friends. Our customers are always sharing stories about this trip or that trip. Camping really does build memories.” Camping also makes great sense in tough economic times. “It is a very reasonable way of spending quality time with the family. Gas prices have come down from last year and we have very affordable monthly payments on a wide range of products including travel trailers, park models and site models.” It all starts at Camping World’s RV sales event Nov. 10-14 at the NYS Fairgrounds.

A well placed drive between the bunkers gives you the best opportunity to go for the green in 2. The green is well protected and one of the most severely sloped on the course. Hole number 2 is a true risk reward hole- reachable but dangerous. This dog-leg right par 4 is one of the shortest par 4’s we have and also one of the tightest. A tee shot placed left center of the fairway past the corner gives you a great look at this ‘mild’ green by Nicklaus’ standards. This is the longest of the par 3’s measuring 226 yards from the Bear Tees, it requires a long iron or hybrid, between the water on the left and the bunkers on the right. The green is one of the deepest on the course- knowing the pin location is essential for selecting the proper club. The number one handicap hole requires a well placed big tee shot right- center of the fairway that gives you the best angle for your long iron approach. Avoid the greenside bunkers or a bogey or worse is likely. A slight dog-leg left, your tee shot must stay left of the tree that protects the right side of the fairway. The lone bunker steals the headlines. A mid to short iron approach must carry to the correct portion of the green, otherwise break out your short game and try to get up and down from one of the many collection areas that surround one of the largest putting surfaces on the course.

A par 5, 3-shot hole all the way. Measuring 584 yards from the bear tees, it plays longer than the yardage indicates. The second shot is key to leave yourself a short iron or wedge to this elevated green which is protected by the water hazard front and right. This par 3 provides a challenge with club selection because it has one of the shallowest greens on the course. Once you have the right club, avoid the large bunker on the right and the collection area on the left. Take your 2- putt par and move on. This hole hosts the most challenging tee shot we have. A long drive placed to the right of the massive fairway bunker will leave a long iron or hybrid to a green that is another Nicklaus Design staple, sloped from back left to front right. And don’t forget about the well placed green- side bunker, it will catch an errant approach shot. The Back Nine at Timber Banks A solid tee shot slightly left of center will leave a short iron approach on this shorter par 4. Accurate club selection is critical to find the relatively shallow putting surface. The fairway bunker on the left is 259 yards from the BEAR tees. CAUTION! Lateral water hazard right of fairway bunker and behind green! Avoid the bunkers on this beautiful three shot par 5 for a chance at par or better. The fortress green demands precision, so be resolved and commit to the shot! The bunkers on the left are 260 yards from the BEAR tees. A tee shot of 228 yards from the BEAR tee will safely carry the water hazard on this medium length par 4. The green falls away behind and to the right and demands a confident approach. The bunker on the right is 298 yards from the BEAR tees. The first of the back nine’s par 3s, this well guarded green requires proper club selection for a chance at par. Beware when the flagstick is above the bunker! Timber Banks’ second par 5 requires brains, brawn, and a deft touch. The fairway is wider than it appears from the tee. Avoid the bunker on the right and you will marvel at the challenges that remain. Place your second shot where you can use your “old reliable” for your third. You will need all its magic to safely find the elevated green. The bunker on the right is 296 yards from the BEAR tees.

Timber Banks’ November special – weekdays $25; weekends $30. For tee times, memberships and tournaments call 635-8800. One of Mr. Nicklaus’s most masterful short par 4’s, do not be deceived by #15’s beauty. The bunkers on the right grab the headlines; lateral water hazards on the left and right do the damage. The sliver of a green completes the package. The bunkers on the right are 360 yards from the BEAR tees. The Seneca River and an early peek at Timber Banks’ coming attractions add majesty to an already beautiful par 3. The green is the largest on this nine, but…the greenside bunker is as well. Choose wisely. The prudent play may be a lay-up short of the cross bunkers leaving a comfortable mid-iron approach on this medium length, slight dogleg right par 4. When the wind is right a long drive will leave only a short pitch. The green is narrow with no bunkers and water to its left. The first bunker on the right is 222 yards from the BEAR tees and will be carried with a drive of 252 yards. The last bunker on the left is 254 yards from the BEAR tees. th Long but downhill, the 18 is a classic, daunting Nicklaus Design par 4 finishing hole. A narrow lateral hazard runs the length of the left side emptying into a guardian pond. The bunker on the right is 270 yards from the BEAR tees.

Volleyball beats Caz in state qualifier By Jeff Brewster They saved the best one for when it counted most. Skaneateles and Cazenovia’s girls volleyball teams met one more time Friday night at Cicero-North Syracuse High School’s gymnasium in the Section III Class C state qualifying match, with Skaneateles pulling out a five-game victory. Beating Cazenovia is no odd feeling for Skaneateles, as they have gotten the better of this burgeoning rivalry for the better part of the past two years. These teams met last winter in the sectional Class B finals, with Skaneateles winning. They also met twice this year, with Skaneateles winning both times in four games en route to a near-perfect 17-1 record. Cazenovia held a 15-4 record going into Friday night’s match. A state qualifying match is a great opportunity for any team - but especially so for these two. Skaneateles and Cazenovia previously played volleyball during the winter, which meant that neither team had a chance to win a state championship, only regional honors. This, 2010, was the first year that both teams played fall volleyball, and got a shot at a state title. They played independent schedules and proved to be powerhouses. And this final proved to be as exciting as they come. The first game proved quite competitive and had many long rallies back and forth before either team would break. One thing was in Skaneateles’ favor from the start - its height on the front line. Using this to their advantage, it overpowered the smaller Cazenovia Lakers with many blocks and spikes. Yet Cazenovia didn’t seem phased by the height differential as it took an early lead and held onto it throughout the game, winning 25-21. The second game started eerily similar to the first, as Cazenovia took


an early lead. But Skaneateles started to click and stormed back to blow open a huge lead, winning 25-14 and drawing even in the match, one game apiece. The third game was, again, all Skaneateles as it looked comfortable and were in top form. Cazenovia had to play catch-up the whole game and couldn’t quite make it, losing 25-19. Skaneateles led 2-1 after 3 games. Yet the fourth game proved a complete opposite of the third. Cazenovia, needing to win to stay alive, started to click on all cylinders, going up early and staying there, pulling out a 25-22 win after a frantic rally by Skaneateles fell short. So the match was tied, two games apiece, with a winner-take-all game fifth game just ahead. But it proved to be a quick one, as Skaneateles played near-perfect volleyball, opening up a huge lead and coasting to a 25-15 victory - and the state playoff berth. For the winners, Caroline Walton had 16 kills and 19 digs, while Julianna Augustine had 10 kills. Gabby Eckles put together 13 digs, seven kills, three aces and two assists, with Anna Goodell (13 digs) and Erin Callahan (11 digs) providing strong defense, too. Colleeen Cargile recorded 30 assists as Joanna Dean got four kills. As for Cazenovia, Lizzy Reed closed out her high school career with 23 kills and 27 digs. Hannah Koennecke got 12 kills and 20 digs, while Alexis Markowski had 10 kills and Melanie Arehart had five kills. On the back line, Amber Robinson had 25 assists and 18 digs as Chelsea Lauria managed 20 assists and 19 digs. Brodie Shepherd (seven digs) and Audrey Bowers (five digs) helped, too. Skaneateles has qualified for the state playoffs, where it will face the Section V champions at Victor High School on Wednesday. The winner there goes to Saturday’s regional final against the Section VI champions at Genesee Community College in Batavia. The Lakers need to win twice to reach the state final four in Glens Falls.

Lakers swimmers reach sectionals By Phil Blackwell After posting the fastest Class C times at last week’s Section III championships at Nottingham, the Skaneateles girls swim team put two of its relay teams into Saturday’s overall finals. And the best effort came in the 200 freestyle relay. Amanda Shoenfelt, Gaelyn Price, Rachael DeWitt and Nikki Cole combined for a swift time of 1:46.92 that put them in seventh place. Fayetteville-Manlius won in 1:41.71. Also, the Lakers reached the 400 freestyle relay final, where DeWitt and Cole joined Sarah Sawyer and Holly Ross to finish in a time of 3:58.8 and take eighth place behind CBA, whose winning time of 3:39.94 capped off claiming the overall sectional team title.

Adams advances to state cross country meet By Phil Blackwell “We couldn’t ask for more from the kids today,” said Skaneateles girls cross country coach Rob Tuttle after last Saturday’s Section III Class B championship race at Vernon-Verona-Sherrill High School. “Third place for the girls is great. The improvement from our race there in September is amazing. The boys all improved. We peaked and everyone gave everything they had.” The Laker girls, who had 93 points, took third behind state-ranked Cazenovia and Marcellus. The Skaneateles boys team took ninth on a day that was filled with mud, cold air and great competition.  Madeline Adams took it out strong and hard and fought to earn the right to move to the New York State championship race this Saturday at Pawling near the Connecticut border. “Maddy took it out just the way we wanted and hit all her geometric vectors perfectly,” said coach Jack Reed. “She was under  self-imposed pressure all week and discovered that this sport is a lot more than just a physical thing. It’s emotional. It’s psychological. And it weighs on you in ways that most people can’t imagine.”  Adams took sixth in 21 minutes, 10.7 seconds as she improved her time from a September meet at VVS by more than a minute. Adams will join Tozser and three Marcellus runners – Rachel Garn, Maggie Dunn and Molly McGuane – on the Section III All-Star squad that will run in the state championship meet this Saturday at Lakeside Park in Pawling, east of Poughkeepsie. The girls Class B race starts at 9:45 a.m. Morel Malcolm, who was also expected to move on to the state championship, took 14thin 21:53.5 while struggling with the mid-30s temperatures. “Morel was more than ready,” said Reed, “but she ran into two implacable foes called cold and wet. But the good

REASON TO BE HAPPY: Skaneateles girls cross country freshman Madeline Adams reacts to her sixth-place finish at last Saturday’s Section III Class B championship meet. Adams earned the right to advance to this Saturday’s state meet at Lakeside Park in Pawling with a time of 21:10.7. news is that we figured out how to get her past those problems. And, you know, it’s okay for a 14 year old to fall a little short of big goals. “Life’s long. And it’s filled with dips and valleys. We have to remember that they’re all works in progress. They don’t have to be finished products by the age of 18. Sometimes we lose sight. Sometimes we forget that sports is still a part of education. She’ll be better down the road because of this disappointment that, in time, will fade from the landscape.”             Having the race of her life was ever-improving frosh

Virginia “Utah” Hamlin who took 17th in 21:55.4 as she helped make a statement about the future. Three ninthgraders led the team in the finish chute in the sectional race. Hamlin dropped her September time by 1:35.  Shannon Byrne had the best race of her season by taking 24th in 22:23.1, an improvement from earlier in the season of 1:13. Sophomore Ellis VanSlyke took off from the start while pulling her teammates to great starts. The Laker finished in 33rd place with a time of 22:52.3. Senior Blair Gage took 36th in 22:58.8 while improving her time by 34 seconds as frosh Maria Schillace ran tough to take 37th in 23:00.6, an improvement of 58 seconds. “We peaked incredibly well,” commented Coach Tuttle. “They went after it. They gave it everything they had. And for a good part of the race, we were winning. We knocked some stuffing out of Caz today. And they know we come back with our scoring five fully intact.”  Sam Kriever led the ninth-place boys Lakers with a time of 18:42.2 for 25th place. The senior cut his time from earlier in the season by 24 seconds while classmate John Watt III took 50th in 19:40.5 to improve by 31 seconds.  Sophomore Matt Delasin had the best race of his season with a 57th place finish as he improved by 33 seconds. Classmate Danny Sakal took 59th and frosh Nick Smolenski closed out the scoring by placing 61st in 20:00.1 as he improved by 38 seconds. Frosh Patrick Biver took 65th in 20:07.5 and senior Joe Duggan improved by 1:33 as he placed 68th in 20:17.4 to close out a banner year. “We can’t complain,” said Reed. “They gave what they had and they got what they gave. There’s a nice symmetry in that. And it pushed us forward toward a faster tomorrow. Good kids. Good efforts. We can close this book and feel very satisfied.”

CNY to celebrate HOPE By Chelsea Mary Holmes On Sept. 15, 2005, Kim Bermel’s husband died by suicide and her life ended as she knew it. When she finally found HOPE for Bereaved five months later, her life began again. “My husband committed suicide. It was pretty unexpected,” Bermel said. “Even though I should have known what to do and how to feel, I really did not have any idea of how I was supposed to live, so I had to try and figure out how I was going to get through.” Bermel went on the Internet and found HOPE for Bereaved, a not-forprofit organization dedicated to serving grieving children, adults and families through counseling, support groups and an array of services, free of charge. Over the past year, it has served more than 10,000 people on their journey from grief to hope. “It was an amazing thing to be in a room with other people who were suicide survivors, because it sets you apart from the rest of the world, it truly does,” she said. “And being in that room at HOPE was the most peaceful and safe place to be.”

This year, HOPE will be celebrating 32 years in Central New York with its annual fundraiser, “Celebration of HOPE,” set for Friday Nov. 12 in the Nicholas J. Pirro OnCenter Ballroom. The event provides a way for people to come together to keep the memories alive of loved ones who have died. The event includes dinner, music, live and silent auctions. There will be more than 250 items on which to bid, including dinner, golf and service certificates, art, sports equipment, unique furnishings, antiques, jewelry, dolls, toys and more. “This is our major fundraiser every year,” said Therese Schoeneck, founder of HOPE for Bereaved. “We do not charge the bereaved for our core services, and we also do not receive annual funds from any source. It really is a wonderful event. People come year after year and have a good time.” Tickets for the event are on sale now. Table hosting, underwriting, and advertising opportunities are also available. To purchase tickets, for more information, or to seek help, call 475-9675, email or visit its website,
