‘Winter in Baldwinsville’ By Sue McManus A program on historic and current winter driving challenges and solutions will be presented Sunday March 6 at The Museum at the Shacksboro Schoolhouse.

The program is set for 2 p.m. at the museum, 46 Canton St. in McHarrie Park.

Baker students will place between 6,000 and 7,000 phone calls over the next two Sundays. However, these calls aren’t for the typical teenage talk. These high school seniors will break up into pairs calling community members to request donations for scholarships that will help fund students’ education costs. “The students come prepared knowing they have to work hard and they do so with such a positive energy and fun spirit,” said Jennifer Saraceni Leitgeb, president of the Baldwinsville Community Scholarship Foundation (BCSF), which organizes the phon-a-thon. “The event is a success because of their effort and enthusiasm.” For 10 years, Baker High School seniors have reached out to the community through a phon-a-thon in an effort to collect donations for scholarships, which are dispersed through the BCSF during Baker High School’s annual Moving Up Day. Last year, more than $100,000 in BCSFfunded scholarships were awarded to graduating seniors. This year, more than 100 students will team up March 6 and 13, with one student making phone calls and the other filling out paperwork. During past events, Baldwinsville community members

Baker High School student Alicia Daddario will volunteer for this year’s Baldwinsville Community Scholarship Foundation’s phona-thon. Daddario had the following to say about her upcoming experience: It’s important to me to volunteer for the phon-a-thon because, as a future college student, I want to be active in getting myself there by encouraging the community to donate money for scholarships. I am grateful toward the community for being so generous, as they are helping students achieve their dreams. The feeling is definitely appreciated and we thank everyone for their donations. This is my first year volunteering, but I have heard nothing but great things about the phon-a-thon. I’m looking forward to putting a fun spin on raising money for scholarships. My friends will be there along with some of the wonderful staff that will make this event not only successful, but also fun.

Baldwinsville has a special link to the topic of tire chains. They were invented by Harry Weed, a graduate of Baldwinsville Academy’s class of 1890. In 1904, Weed received a patent for “Grip Tread for Pneumatic Tires” and developed the nationally prominent Weed Chain Company. While Weed left Central New York to pursue career and business interests, upon his death in 1961 he returned to be buried in Riverview Cemetery. The exhibition “Chillin’ Out” also features dozens of vintage and contemporary photos showing the effects of winter on Baldwinsville.

Tire chains, as seen in this 1917 photo of Baldwinsville’s new gasoline powered fire truck, have been one of many attempts to facilitate travel over snow. The Museum at the Shacksboro Schoolhouse will host a program on historic and current road maintenance techniques and vehicle design improvements at 2 p.m. Sunday March 6. Panel members are Fred Thomas, Ralph Bratt and Ed Parks. The public is invited to join the discussion.

Village to digitize codes

Urinetown: The Musical

Village officials have approved an agreement with General Code to digitalize the village codes into an electronic format available online so officials and residents alike can better navigate village codes. This includes not only an online version of the codes, but also a search engine, which enables users to search for specific elements of the codes such as regulations regarding fences, pools, sheds and more. The agreement was approved at a cost not to exceed $14,000. Public hearing A public hearing regarding the 2011 Community Development five-year plan for the village of Baldwinsville will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday March 3 at Village Hall, 16 West Genesee St., Baldwinsville.

Staff reports The Baldwinsville Theatre Guild will present the Tony Award winning “Urinetown: The Musical” this March. The satirical comedy musical features music and lyrics by Mark Hollman and book and lyrics by Greg Kotis. Urinetown lampoons the legal system, capitalism, social responsibility, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement and local politics. In addition, the musical ridicules Broadway itself poking fun at shows such as Les Miserables and Annie, to name a couple. The production won three Tony Awards in 2002. A terrible water shortage, due to a 20-year drought, has hamstrung the Gotham-like town that is the setting for Urinetown: The Musical. In an attempt to regulate water consumption, the government has outlawed the use of private toilets. The citizenry must use public, designated pay-per-flush amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company, a vindictive corporation run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell. Urinetown provides a story that centers on the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of a free flush.

e v a S a lot

The inspiration for Urinetown came to Kotis in 1995 following a European tour with the Neo-Futurists, a theater group based on Chicago’s North Side. Nearly out of cash, he struggled to justify using Paris’ pay-to-flush toilets, and began envisioning a world in which private toilets are banned forever. The musical has been performed from Broadway, to London, to Tokyo, and now Baldwinsville. The show dates are: 7:30 p.m. March 11, 12, 19, 25 and 26; 8 p.m. March 18; and 3 p.m. Sunday (matinee) March 20. Shows will be held at the First Presbyterian Education Center, 64 Oswego St. in Baldwinsville. Tickets are: adults $20; students $17; and seniors $17 for Sunday matinee only. Tickets can be purchased by calling 877-4183 or visiting Currently in its 68th season, the Baldwinsville Theatre Guild is a nonprofit organization and the oldest community theatre in New York State. Complimentary desserts and hot beverages will be served during the show’s intermission. In addition, barring any unforeseen water shortage, first pee is free, with your ticket. After that . . .

Get your Taste tickets Hundreds will attend this Saturday’s Taste of Baldwinsville event – don’t get left out by forgetting to purchase your tickets. The annual event, held from 7 to midnight this Saturday March 5 at the CNY Family Sports Centre on Jones Road, features food samplings from some of the best restaurants in Baldwinsville, not to mention beverages and numerous great auction items donated by area businesses, groups and individuals. Proceeds from the Taste of B’ville benefit the Baldwinsville Volunteer Center, providing half the facility’s annual operating budget. The Volunteer Center helps make Baldwinsville the tight-knit community it is by connecting volunteers with organizations in need, as well as initiating and operating programs that benefit senior citizens, families and individuals in need. Some of these programs include the Christmas Bureau and mentoring program. While fiscal times are tight for many, and people are holding the line on unnecessary spending, the Taste of Baldwinsville is an event that is not only well worth your investment because of its direct impact on our community, but it also provides participants with a great evening of food, fun and entertainment. To purchase your tickets, which are $30 each, visit the Volunteer Center at 44 Oswego St. at the four corners in Baldwinsville from 9 a.m. to noon through this Friday or call Nancy Conley, the executive director, at 638-0251.

The Codes Corner

Carbon Monoxide poisoning – the ‘silent killer’ By Ronald W. Dean Carbon Monoxide (CO) is known as “the silent killer.” You can’t smell it, taste it or see it, yet it kills nearly 300 people each year according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. CO is a deadly gas that is produced by fuel-burning equipment such as wood stoves, furnaces, water heaters and kerosene space heaters. Having your chimney and heat-

ing system checked each year can not only make them more efficient and reliable, but avoid the dangers caused by a plugged chimney or malfunctioning heating unit. New laws governing the requirement and location of CO alarms were passed last year by New York State and apply to buildings regardless of age. A CO alarm must be on every story containing a sleeping area and within 15’ of a sleeping room, on each floor that has a CO

producing source and within every sleeping area that contains a CO source. The Village of Baldwinsville Code Department will be glad to answer any questions or help you locate the required locations of CO or smoke alarms.

your visit, he would see you on payday. And, Doc knew when everyone’s payday was, so did “Doc” at the drug store. Doc only performed a few basic lab tests. An X-ray machine could be found in a hospital and that is where one went if such was needed. Bring your time capsule back to 2000. Several doctors practice together as a group, some are general practitioners and some are specialty groups. All have X-ray machines plus an array of other imaging apparatuses specific for their specialty. Then there is laboratory equipment, computers, extensive telephone and auxiliary equipment. All of this equipment requires technicians educated specifically for the activity. Add to all of that the office staff; a one-person staff is now as may as five. I do not know of a single doctor today that practices in the home. Do you? Do you know of a doctor’s office with a single person office staff? Well, you might find a few out in the desert or up on a mountaintop, but there are very few. Adding to all of the above, we find infringement by government at all levels, State, Federal and local. As an example; the sheets of paper, with hardly a paragraph of legal jargon you must sign, before a doctor can even talk to you. You pay for this to provide the doctor with protection against mal-practice. These, my friends, are the sins of the 20th Century that have bought you expensive healthcare, but the best in the world that human beings have ever had. Early in 2009, President Obama requested citizens to hold local meetings discussing America’s Health Care. Baldwinsville held three of those meetings. As groups signed on, the White House suggested ideas for discussion. The suggestions were directed toward a complete overhaul using the uninsured figures as a basis for reform and a single payer system as the solution. More than 100 individuals attended the two meetings in Baldwinsville. Several medical practitioners attended and the trip back in time became the basis of discussions followed by “what do we need now?” The Baldwinsville groups chose to See Mailbag, page 5

From the mailbag Big Chill a huge success To the editor: On behalf of the Greater Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank all those who helped make this year’s event the best ever. B’ville’s Big Chill has emerged as a one of the premier winter events in Greater Syracuse, showcasing the wonderfully community we live in. The success of this year’s event was made possible by all those who sponsored the event, helped prepare for, or participated in the many events held throughout our village. In my opinion, as the chair of B’ville’s Big Chill, the most amazing aspect of this year’s event was clearly, the tremendous outpour of support from a large number of community organizations. It was a pleasure for me to witness the many Baldwinsville organizations that came together to donate time and service in order to prepare for this event: The Village of Baldwinsville, Baldwinsville Fire Company, Baldwinsville Ambulance Corp., The Volunteer Center, The Greater Baldwinsville Economic Development Agency, Baldwinsville Oktoberfest, NYS Trooper Dive Team, Baldwinsville School District, and the Greater Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce. All of these Not For Profit agencies came together to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of CNY, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of CNY and the Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce. This effort of community cooperation clearly defines the unique fabric that Baldwinsville maintains, a fabric that so many other communities have lost. It is imperative to recognize all the sponsors of this year’s event. These many sponsors allow the B’ville’s Big Chill committee to achieve their goals year after year: Baldwinsville Heating and Air Conditioning, Baldwinsville Kiwanis, Beaver Lake Nature Center, Buttercup Cheese, Cruise Planners of CNY, Dooley Mack, Baldwinsville Economic Development Agency, GR8 Show, Greater Baldwinsville Ambulance Corp., Hudson & Mowins, Lou’s Car Care Center, MS Unlimited, Nobles Tire City, Northside Collision, Oktoberfest Committee, Parisi Speed School, Seneca

Past offered better healthcare coverage

To the editor: My immediate response to your article of Feb. 2 (Obama’s Plan: Pros & Cons, Excellence) was “Here we go again!” Yes, there may be millions of Americans without healthcare insurance, but when was it established that the same millions of Americans lacked health care? The 2006 census identified half of that number as paying out-of-pocket for health care and the remainder received some form of Federal, State or complimentary care. The problems we were seeing had more to do with the increasing cost of care than how it got paid. Take a walk back in time, the local doctor lived on your block or one nearby. He probably held office visits in one room of his home. The medicine cabinet was just that, a cabinet. Some medication he carried in his bag. Many times the nurse, or receptionist-nurse aide, was the doctor’s wife. If you couldn’t pay the day of

discuss problems with current healthcare. Employer sponsored insurance limits movement in the work force, provides too much information about employees’ health to employers. Patients have no skin in the game (one gets the sniffles, they go to the doctor – does one need professional help at this point?). It also limits the individual’s personal choices based on their needs and ability, provides for a misinterpretation of insurance. Individuals and businesses cannot purchase cheaper insurance across state lines. Answers included: Individuals should take personal responsibility for their care and have skin in the game for payments; individuals should understand insurance is a buffer against emergencies; individuals could always purchase insurance across state lines. The question really is, does the individual want the possible limited protection of another state when New York has strict rules and aggressive follow-up for its citizens? Dolores Reed Van Buren

Ending the shoppers bus To the editor: I have heard recently that Onondaga County may end the shoppers bus routine? I don’t like that choice. The shoppers bus for the Baldwinsville area operates in the Conifer village apartments, St. Mary’s apartments and Village Green. If they end it, it will bring a lot of disappointment to people within this area. You expect these people to walk to the grocery store, especially if they are over 70 years old? I’ve been a rider for some time on the shoppers bus and it is great transportation. I have arthritis in my right knee. I hope the shoppers bus service will continue and others may agree.

Library Focus

Plenty of activity in March By Valerie Chism And now for some things completely different . . . and a few that you might have seen before. Fabric and fabrications If you have ever dreamed of a studio, a sewing room or a craft table of your very own, but lack the space we may have the answer. Several sewing, craft and art groups use library space to follow their muse without cluttering up the living room.

You are more likely to find a job through friends and acquaintances and you should never stop devel-

oping your skills. Every Thursday at 1 p.m. we focus on jobs with either a job seekers support group or classes helpful to job seekers. This month the job club meets on March 3, 17 and 31. Special classes include How to Hope on March 10 to help revitalize demoralized job hunters and Focusing Your Job Search on March 24 to help you zero in on the jobs that are right for you.

Durgee hosts Wellness/Career Expo By Kelly Cary, BCSD Durgee Junior High School hosted its first annual Health and Wellness/Career Expo Jan. 31 to encourage junior high students to adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles. The school designed the expo to encourage a dialogue in school regarding how students can create and maintain lifestyles that will provide them with optimal physical and mental health. Ninth-graders participated in an interactive Q & A featuring local nutrition and health care professionals including Kaushal Nanavati, M.D., district physician, Melanie Schreiner, district dietician, and Samantha Hillman, district athletic trainer and physical education teacher at Baker High School. Rounding out the panel were Seth Nels, corporate chef with Fusion Sales Group, Ruth Sullivan, a registered dietician from Syracuse University, David Wolfe, a sleep expert, and Florence Selin, a consultant on child nutrition with the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council. After the Q&A session students visited several stations to sample healthy foods including yogurt, vegetarian chili and breakfast bars. All students rotated through a fitness activity of their choice including Zumba, yoga, karate, snowshoeing and dance. The junior high students also had an opportunity to speak with local health care professionals during the career expo portion of the morning. Durgee Junior High School was recently award-

The grant supported the Wellness/Career Expo. The Wellness/Career Expo promoted the Baldwinsville Central School District’s wellness policy, which the district adopted in 2006. The wellness policy

emphasizes creating and maintaining a learning environment that models and encourages healthy eating and physical activity

habits. The entire policy is on the district’s web site at, under District Info & Data.

Two B’ville schools awarded grants for wellness efforts By Kelly Cary, BCSD

Kevin M Wall


Two schools in the Baldwinsville Central School District have been awarded grants from the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council (ADADC) for their participation in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, an inschool nutrition and physical activity program of the National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL). Reynolds Elementary received $2,000 for its efforts to promote healthier eating and physical activity. Principal Olivia Cambs said the grant will be used in part to purchase breakfast for all of the school’s third-,

fourth-, and fifth-graders for each day of each grade’s state assessments this school year. Studies indicate that students are better able to concentrate in school when they have eaten a nutritious breakfast. The grant will also be used to fund a show by an educational performer who promotes healthy choices through music. Principal Cambs said that third-grade teacher Jon Langstaff has been coordinating the Fuel Up to Play 60 program at the school and was instrumental in securing the grant. Additionally, the school received 76 NFL mini-helmets from the Fuel Up to Play 60 program as a reward for a healthy food challenge the school’s

B’ville gains relay win at state track qualifier By Phil Blackwell

Baldwinsville’s indoor track and field team put together a string of high finishes during last Saturday’s Section III state qualifying meet at Colgate University’s Sanford Field House. Of them, the best came in the boys 4x400 relay, where the Bees would take the top spot. Andrew Hoover, Jon Hingre,

Rudy Sapp and Ethan Pacheck combined on a time of three minutes, 35.83 seconds that beat runner-up Corcoran (3:37.63) by 1.80 seconds. They will now head to Cornell University for this Saturday’s state championship meet. Elsewhere, Shaun Thompson worked his way to third place in the 3,200-meter run in 9:26.06, not far behind Andrew Roache (Fayetteville-Manlius),

who won in 9:23.96. Thompson also joined Josh Perez, Alec Peinkofer and Andrew Fleming to finish third in the 4x800 relay in 8:39.56. Hoover rose to fifth in the 55meter hurdles in 8.23 seconds, with Peinkofer fifth in the 1,000meter run in 2:36.25 as Liverpool’s Zavon Watkins (2:26.13) set a new sectional record. Todd Mitchell was sixth in the 300meter dash in 38 seconds flat as

Sapp took sixth (6.83 seconds) in the 55-meter dash. In the girls state qualifier, Gina Carnovale managed the best individual finish, nearly winning the 55 sprint. She finished in 7.68 seconds, just behind Rome Free Academy’s Vita Puma, who won in 7.62 seconds. B’ville was third in the 4x400 relay as Lindsey Varga, Quaneisha Ivey, Julia Johnson and Mallory Warner finished in a

clocking of 4:26.93. Ivey joined Carnovale, Laura Farleman and Cierra Allen to get fourth place in the 4x200 relay in 1:53.61. Mackenzie Ross, in the 600meter run, had a fourth-place time of 1:46.58. Allen worked her way to fifth in the 300 in 44.20 seconds. Sierra Earle took seventh in the shot put with a toss of 30 feet 8 Âź inches, while Farleman was ninth in the 55 hurdles.

B’ville girls eliminated by Utica Proctor Coughlin to play for SU By Phil Blackwell

The Baldwinsville girls basketball team’s stay in the Section III Class AA playoffs was prolonged by weather – but only for a day. When the no. 6 seed Bees finally took the court for last Saturday’s AA quarterfinal at no. 3 Utica Proctor, it got overwhelmed as the host Raiders prevailed 59-43 in a game only made close by B’ville’s late surge. To some degree, the Bees felt confident it could, at least, keep things interesting. When it first met Proctor on Jan. 26, B’ville led going into the fourth quarter, only to see the Raiders close on a 19-6 sprint to win that game 54-47. Here, the cast was the same on both sides, including Proctor’s all-time leading scorer, Brianna Kiesel, who is going to the University of Pittsburgh. And the result was the same, too.

What was different, though, was that the Raiders, remembering that initial close call, attacked the Bees from the start on all fronts. It was already 18-9 going into the second quarter, and B’ville’s mistakes continued to pile up until it trailed 39-17 going into halftime. And it got to 55-26 before Kiesel and the rest of Proctor’s starters went to the bench in the fourth quarter, allowing the Bees to recover a bit. Claire Monnat led with 10 points, while Maggie Monnat posted seven points. Liz Giromini and Maureen Thayer each had six points. Kiesel again paced Proctor with 24 points as teammate Sierra Arthur contributed 12 points. B’ville finished the season at 12-7, but things could get a lot better next winter as every starter – the Monnat sisters, Giromini, Gabi Jordan and Andrea Moore – are expected to return, along with Thayer. Just one senior, Maggy Reilly, departs.

Yogi Bear…Family fun-close to you! Jellystone Park marks 41st year

asked us to take Yogi to a holiday event in Rochester on Dec. 2. It was a tree lighting and a variety of family activities. We spent about two and a half hours meeting and greeting families. Yogi kept the children busy while waiting to have their picture taken with Santa. Yogi and Boo Boo traveled to Carousel Mall for the opening night of the new movie. They were on a red carpet as they greeted movie-goers. Later they were asked to ride the carousel with the children. It was difficult to move through the food court both Friday night and Saturday because so many children and adults wanted their picture with the bears. Saturday, when someone on the carousel spotted Yogi work his way for aother ride, a loud “Yogi Chant” was started that certainly got some attention. They also rode the glass elevator and the escalator. What a great experience for all of us,” said Barb Lighthall. Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park is located at 601 County Route 16, Mexico.

rience for the family. “The great thing about RVing in terms of the family is that it kind of forces you to be together,” Oot said. “There’s not as many distractions and you’re not all going in different directions. Throughout the trip each day and for the vacation itself, you’re spending time together, from the morning until the campfire at night.” For more information on the CNY RV Show, call (877) 228-8240 or visit cnyrvshow. com.

Let’s say you’re going to Disney. They have a campground along with their hotels. Every resort has a campground. You can bring your own things, sleep in your own bed, there’s no airport delays or cancelled flights.” RVing also provides a good bonding expe-

Sweating is a by product of rigorous exercise that elicits different reactions. Some view sweating as an unsavory part of exercise while others perceive sweating as body-cleansing and weightloss mechanisms. There are also those who think that sweating is a sign of being out of shape. To set matters straight, researchers recently measured the rate at which both men and women perspired while bicycling under controlled conditions. They found that physically fit individuals start to sweat at lower core body temperatures. And because sweating is a mechanism that the body uses to cool off, sweating enables people to perform longer. Sweat output was found to be significantly higher for fit people during intense exercise than for their less-fit counterparts.

Virginia A. Niccoli, 64

Former Girl Scout leader Paulette S. Baker, 63, of Baldwinsville, passed away Monday Feb. 14, 2011, at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Paulette was a Girl Scout leader in Baldwinsville and also was very involved in St. Mary’s Church youth groups, where she also served as a Eucharistic Minister. She was predeceased by her parents, Paul and Agnes Slate. Survivors: her husband

Exercise rate and sweating do not correlate accurately, especially if you are getting back into exercise after a long period of inactivity. If you are starting aerobic exercise again after time away, then you can sweat even if you aren’t working particularly hard because it takes time for your sweating mechanisms to adapt to workout. To schedule an appointment for physical therapy, please call 315-476-3176. The State of New York requires that each patient must see a physician, nurse practitioner, dentist or podiatrist and receive a prescription for physical therapy. We are located at 207 Pine Street in Syracuse. P.S. In the study mentioned above, researchers found that, in general, men sweat more than women probably due to their higher testosterone levels, which have been linked to sweat rate.

HEALTH & WELLNESS Hematology-Oncology Associates provides the highest level of quality care Since 1982, Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY (HOA) has been a private practice dedicated to providing optimal care in a healing environment for the mind, body and spirit of patients dealing with cancer and blood disorders. HOA is comprised of 16 physicians, 22 nurse practitioners/physician assistants and 200-plus clinical personnel in four locations including one in Rome and three in the greater Syracuse area. They are privileged to have patients entrust them with their medical care and allow them to be an integral part of their healthcare journey. HOA treats about 2,500 new cancer patients and 1,300 new patients with blood disorders each year. HOA’s Clinical Research Department and Clinical Trials are one of our community’s jewels. HOA is one of just 50 National Cancer Institute Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) participants in the U.S. There are times when HOA’s patients can benefit from clinical trials using new cancer treatments or technologies that are unavailable anywhere else in Upstate NY. Everyone at HOA is deeply committed to offering their patients the most advanced treatments available. Their clinical staff is highly skilled and certified in their Oncology specialty. HOA’s comprehensive cancer sites offer infusion therapy and radiation therapy via two advanced Varian linear accelerators for IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy). Their East

HOA is deeply committed to offering their patients the most advanced treatments available. Syracuse facility also houses the CyberKnife, the world’s most accurate radiosurgery weapon, which painlessly treats tumors with minimal effects on nearby healthy cells. The CyberKnife tackles tumors throughout the body including the spine, brain, lung and prostate – even those deemed inoperable. Because it’s so effective, patients need far fewer treatments. HOA also offers in-house CT imaging, giving their treatment teams quick, desktop access to each patient’s cumulative imaging, so physicians can closely monitor progress. In addition,

their certified laboratory offers extensive on-site testing for exceptional results and patient convenience. What makes their practice truly special is that everyone at HOA is “united in spirit” – a spirit that is filled with possibilities and hope. They believe that effective medical treatment is not only about healing their patients’ physical illnesses, but also about promoting their emotional, mental and spiritual well being. Their patients are treated like people – not cases. They offer counseling and alternative therapies such as Reiki, massage, healing touch, acupuncture and foot reflexology to complement their state-of-the-art medical treatments and clinical trials. The mission of Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY is to provide the highest level of quality care in a healing environment for the mind, body and spirit of patients dealing with cancer and blood disorders. HOA’s sites include Brittonfield Parkway in East Syracuse – 472-7504; Onondaga Hill in Syracuse – 472-7504; North Medical Center in Liverpool – 472-7504, and East Chestnut Street in Rome – 339-5783. Their beautiful, healing space called “The Wellness Center” is located at 5700 West Genesee Street in Camillus and provides a haven of opportunity for the mind, body and spirit and it is open to the public.

Popular alternative to nursing home care thrives in CNY

Who would have dreamt that one of Central New York’s most popular alternatives to traditional nursing home care today originated nearly 30 years ago on the west coast of the United States? PACE CNY, Loretto’s popular Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly in cooperation with St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, is based on the national PACE model created in 1973 to help the AsianAmerican community in San Francisco care for its elders in their own homes. It provided an innovative way to offer and coordinate a comprehensive array of medical services, physical and occupational therapies, nutrition, transportation,

respite care, socialization and other needed services using home care and an adult day setting. In 1994, Loretto determined that it would pursue development of a PACE program in Onondaga County. PACE CNY officially opened its doors on December 1, 1997, and has since expanded to include two full PACE Day Centers serving a current census of more than 400 enrollees. According to the National PACE Association, the typical PACE participant is over the age of 80, lives alone or with relatives, and requires help with personal care and with activities of daily living to maintain safety and security. The Interdisciplinary Team

Approach One of the unique aspects of PACE CNY is its interdisciplinary team approach to providing or coordinating care of those people who are nursing home eligible and are age 55 or older. Every weekday morning the team gathers for “Morning Meeting,” where they discuss any findings or concerns about each individual participant’s health and well being. Every participant has a team that manages their needs. The PACE CNY interdisciplinary team includes medical care from primary care physicians and nurse practitioners, and home care services from registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certi-

fied home health aids. In addition, PACE CNY offers physical, occupational and massage therapies, as well as therapeutic recreation, day care, nutrition, medication management, transportation and case management staff services. Recent developments at PACE CNY In 2008, Loretto’s Forest View at Fayette opened to provide quality, low-cost housing for 14 older adults in Syracuse. PACE CNY provides supportive services for these residents to help them remain independent and living in the community for as long as possible.

Excellus BCBS awards hospitals $19 million for quality improvements Fifty-two upstate New York hospitals last year earned more than $19 million in quality improvement incentive payments from Excellus BlueCross BlueShield as part of the health insurer’s Hospital Performance Incentive Program. In the past two years, quality performance incentives from Excellus BlueCross BlueShield have exceeded $40 million. “By tying our payments to these hospitals to improvements in health outcomes and patient safety, we’re helping assure that our members and all others get the best quality care and the most value for their health care dollars,” said Carrie Frank, vice president of quality and health informatics at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield. Eight hospitals in Central New York participated in this program in 2010, including Community General Hospital, Cortland Regional Medical Center, Crouse Hospital, Massena Memorial Hospital, Oswego Hospital, Samaritan Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center and SUNY Upstate University Hospital. “Working with Excellus BlueCross BlueShield complements our robust quality improvement program at Upstate University Hospital,” said James Legault, director of clinical practice analysis and infection control at SUNY

Upstate University Hospital. “The ability to combine our goals with Excellus BlueCross BlueShield works well for both organizations.” Launched in 2004, the HPIP program evaluates participating hospitals on more than 300 performance measures. Target outcomes are jointly agreed upon by each hospital and the health insurer using benchmarks established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Leapfrog Group, the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and others. Four areas are targeted for improvement: Clinical Outcomes – Focused on improvements in heart attack care, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care. Patient Safety – Focused on reductions in hospital-acquired infections, improved medication reconciliation processes and National Quality Forum Safe Practices. Patient Perception of Care and Patient Satisfaction – Focused on a hospital’s use of a national survey tool. Efficiency – Focused on generics utilization, length of stay and readmissions. “Having a financial incentive to improve quality has resulted in participating hospitals consistently scoring higher

on CMS Quality Measures than hospitals whose payments are not at-risk,” said Frank. CMS is the federal agency that administers Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Relevance in upstate New York In 2007, Excellus BlueCross BlueShield issued a fact sheet on hospital-acquired infections which showed an estimated 19,500 upstate New Yorkers acquired an infection during a hospital stay in 2004 and nearly a thousand deaths were likely to have occurred as a result. The fact sheet, titled HospitalAcquired Infections in Upstate New York, is archived under the heading “Hospitals” in the News & Information section of Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, a nonprofit independent licensee of the BlueCross BlueShield Association, is part of a family of companies that finances and delivers vital health care services to 1.7 million people across upstate New York. Excellus BlueCross BlueShield provides access to high-quality, affordable health coverage, including valuable health-related resources that our members use every day, such as cost-saving prescription drug discounts and wellness tracking tools in our Step Up program.

Seneca Federal: Navigating economic changes, same solid community foundation Katrina Russo, President â&#x20AC;&#x201C; CEO of Seneca Federal Savings and Loan Association is very passionate about her community bank and its solid decision making. 2010 marked Seneca Federal Savings and Loan Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 83th year of providing financial services to communities within Central New York. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This milestone is rare in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial industry and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of it. Given the competitive environment and state of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy, within which Seneca Federal operates, the association is fortunate to have a dedicated staff of employees who continue to provide exceptional, personal customer service to our members. This dedication has proven to sustain us through many years,â&#x20AC;? Russo said. Russo continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The national economy has been marked by high unemployment rates, a rising number of foreclosures, declining home prices and contractions in business and consumer credit. The unemployment rate locally was slightly below the national average, which was 9.4 percent in December 2010.â&#x20AC;? She explained that in 2010, the association continued to have strong asset quality based on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conservative underwriting standards and diligent monitoring of delinquent and nonperforming loans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have remained committed to our charter of fostering homeownership during 2010 by originating over $12.4 million in residential mortgage loans,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our net interest income is above last yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; level and we have maintained liquidity while preparing our balance sheet for the risk of inflation, and

expanding our residential mortgage loan business as well as to invest in what management believes will be a future higher rate environment.â&#x20AC;? The associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating expenses are below last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level as a result of various factors including the completion of the final phase of the succession plan, developed by the board over four years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The succession plan was a slow, seamless process that was completed in mid 2010. We were able to navigate our own internal changes while also navigating all the various changes in the economy and banking regulations,â&#x20AC;? Russo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many small banks face a merger at the time executive and senior officers retire,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The continued viability of Seneca Federal is not only a tribute to the board, but also to the retiring officers and employees who provided others with the knowledge and skill sets necessary for the association to carry on for many more decades under the thrift charter and to this end we are very thankful to be given this opportunity entrusted to us.â&#x20AC;? Looking ahead to 2011, management remains committed to maintaining a steady course in carrying out the responsibilities entrusted to them by the board, as the merger between the Office of Thrift Supervision and the Office of The Comptroller of the Currency occurs in July of this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The extensive regulatory changes brought about by the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the passing of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and

At left, Seneca Federal Savings President-CEO Katrina M. Russo and Wendy K. Bodnar, EVP-CFO. Consumer Protection Act in 2010 marks yet another transformation in banking activities, which can stretch the resources of small community banks,â&#x20AC;? points out Russo. Reform will be far reaching into such areas as Federal consumer protection law compliance, state law compliance, and Homeland Security Regulations. The regulatory burden is always disproportionately heavy for reputable lenders such as Seneca Federal as attempts are made by the federal government to police the dishonest few.

CANCER BEWARE “I had cancer. Cancer never had me.” Yesterday, I got out my fishing rod. I couldn’t help thinking of everyone at HOA. It was last spring when I found out. I was overwhelmed, distraught – and scared. I thought my fishing days were over. Then I went to HOA. My medical team all said, “We have the technology to fight this thing!” and showed me the CyberKnife. It sounded scary, but when I learned how it worked and how safe it was, I had hope for the first time. Your attitude really inspired me, your staff always encouraged me and your plan of action worked. I may have had cancer, but cancer never had me. Today, my kids and I are heading up to the lake.
