The Cazenovia Garden Club

(CGC) is planning to hold its spring plant sale on Saturday, June 1, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., in Telephone Park, the strip of green along Albany Street in front of Kinney Drugs and Dave’s Diner.

The club will be selling a variety of perennials, silent raffle tickets for items from local businesses, and a wide array of decorative pots filled with annuals. All the perennial plants will be coming from CGC members’ home gardens.

In early May, Cazenovia Public Library will be hosting history presen-

tations exploring the local significance of railroads and aviation. On May 7 at 6 p.m., photographer Gene Gissin will share the story of Cazen-

local gardeners who toil over their gardens from year to year,” said CGC member Connie Hasko, who is chairing the spring sale committee. “Many perennials can or need to be divided, and this division allows the CGC to use the plants for the sale. This is a great way for us to keep our

ovia’s historic train depot on William Street and discuss the railroad’s impact on Cazenovia industry.

Constructed in 1894, the former depot is a one-anda-half story, rectangular, gable-roofed, largely clap

board structure. Gissin has owned the building for over 40 years and used it to house his professional photography

Go native

Spring and summer present ideal growing conditions for many plants, making these seasons an ideal time to tend to lawns and gardens.

Though it’s easy to succumb to the temptation of exotic plants, avid gardeners and eco-conscious planters recognize the significance of native plants.

Novices may not realize that native plants are much better for a landscape and the local ecosystem it calls home. Recognition of the many benefits of native plants can make for healthier lawns and gardens and a healthier planet as well.

Native plants are built for local climates.

One of the issues gardeners who plant exotic plants run into is keeping those plants thriving when weather turns harsh.

For example, exotic plants may require extra watering in areas that experience drought or even long periods without precipitation in spring and notably summer.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency reports that at least 40 states anticipate water shortages by 2024.

Planting native plants can help to combat those shortages by reducing the need to water plants if conditions become dry in late spring and summer.

It’s also important to note that native plants save homeowners money.

Because they’re capable of thriving in local conditions, native plants tend to require less watering, which can help homeowners reduce their utility costs.

But native plants also require less upkeep, which means homeowners can save on potentially costly, not to mention eco-unfriendly, pesticides and other amendments in order to maintain the look of exotic plants. And though it’s not always the case, exotic plants tend to cost more at nurseries than natives.

In addition to saving money, native plants don’t require as much attention.

Though spring and summer is a great time to be in the yard, it’s also a great time to be out and about. Because native plants thrive in local conditions, gardeners won’t need to spend much of their free time tending to them. Exotics tend to require a lot of extra attention and effort, especially when conditions become harsh. Spending more time outdoors in harsh weather does not appeal to most gardeners.

Native plants blend in with an existing landscape.

Native plants look natural within an existing landscape, adding some instant aesthetic appeal without breaking the bank.

When planting exotics, homeowners may feel a need to redesign their entire gardens to create a certain look (think Japanese garden). That can quickly consume a budget and take up a lot of free time in both the short- and long-term.

Planting season marks a great time to revitalize a landscape. Choosing native plants when doing so pays numerous dividends for homeowners and the planet they call home.

Here COMes tHe sun?

It’s that shoulder season, the time when winter has worn out its welcome and spring is only intermittent thoughts on warmer afternoons. There are the signs. The daffodils are up, as are the first snowdrops. A lonely azalea brightens a corner under the rhododendrons and the rhubarb is poking its first leaves through the winter’s leavings.

But I’m still in winter mode.

I am so looking forward to leaving the house without my winter apparel. Put the heavy coat, the hat, gloves and boots away! As it is every year, the hint of warmth and sun is an annoying tease, hope poking through an off-and-on basis while the windows stay shut to keep out the remaining cold.

You know what it is like on those teasingly-infrequent warm and sunny days. All seems possible. Being comfortably outside, windows open, taking a walk, greeting friends who, like you, have been sequestered for the season, not by pathogens, but by the fear of the slipperiness of ice and maturing feet, knees and hips. So? What to do? Can this

Ramblings from the empty nest ann Ferro

yearning for spring mean more anxiety in a world filled with troubles?

It’s still winter, not by the calendar, but by temperatures. Staying inside is really the best option and willing myself to enjoy the things that are associated with winter’s limits seems right. I’ll make a hearty beef stew with biscuits and maybe, if the energy lasts, an apple pie. I may dream of a lovely, light chicken salad with fresh lettuce accompanied by the sound of ice in glasses filled with sweet tea on the porch, contemplating a visit to the bowling alley for ice cream, but there is nothing wrong with my winterfocused menu and if the sun’s turning continues as it has … there will be time for chicken salad on the porch.

I’ll do as my neighbor’s cat does and seek out the best environment to luxuriate in what it has to offer. “Sneakers,” the famous cat, at least in our house, whose address is a few

houses away, spends his days chasing the sun on our deck and our porch or hard up to the side of another neighbor’s sunlit basement wall. And, every once in a while, I will surprise Mr. Sneakers with some treats. My old friend Linda Landinez called it “cat crack” or a cat’s delight. My version of Sneakers will be inside. I’ll finish that book I started a month ago, comfortably ensconced in the love seat in the living room … a cup of Red Rose tea by my side. I’ll finish cleaning out my office, divesting myself of the accumulation of years of stuff that I will never use. That, in itself, is like opening a window on a warm day. And, courtesy of the Marcellus Free Library, I will experience my own version of the delight of surprise. I picked up my Book Box this week, but I hadn’t opened it. Today was a good choice for that. And delight it was. Inside my Book Box were lovely unexpected gifts embellishing a theme, this month’s theme being “Loving Local” featuring romance writers from Central New York.

Inside was a book by Oneidabased Jo McNally with a hand crocheted book mark, two pencils joyously decorated with faux flowers and a butterflies, a sweet candle, three chocolates and a tote bag. I was and am charmed by these treasures. So…now I have prompts for other days when the weather is not what I wish, opportunities to explore integrating this swag into my life. Of course, the chocolates will be the first to go, since warm weather can cause it to melt.

I should sign up for the next Book Box, but then there are others who might enjoy a trip to delights whatever the weather.

It goes back again to the idea of doing what you can with where you are and what you have. Makes sense. Did I hear geese flying north?

Ann Ferro is a mother, a grandmother and a retired social studies teacher. While still figuring out what she wants to be when she grows up, she lives in Marcellus with lots of books, a spouse and a large orange cat.

tHe VOiCe wHO was tHere

We all need breaks in life. A day here, a week there – even if we are really good at the occupation of our choosing, getting away recharges us, refreshes us, allows us to still enjoy and love it for a lot longer.

John Sterling did not believe in this. At all. From the time in September 1989 he took the microphone as the new voice of the New York Yankees, he showed up every game, regular season and post-season, until health issues forced him to miss a series. In 2019.

Thirty years and he never missed a game. They talk about and marvel at Cal Ripken Jr. for going 2,632 games in a row. A mere trifle. Counting the playoffs (and there were a lot of playoffs), Sterling’s streak reached 5,060, and he eventually got to 5,631 before announcing his retirement on April 18.

Oh, and that was just the back half of a career that spanned six-plus decades, started in the Eisenhower administration and included memorable stints with the Islanders and Atlanta Braves.

Just as Mel Allen was indelible to Yankee fans of earlier generations, Sterling and his one-of-a-kind baritone is forever linked to the recent glory of the pinstripes, especially that championship era from 1996 to 2000.

Division titles, pennants, World Series, a couple of perfect games, two players that passed 3,000 career hits….Sterling saw and called all of it, giving it a narration no one


Shocked at lack of dialogue

To the Editor:

A Representative to the People’s House, the House of Representative of the Congress of the United States of America, is, by definition, assumed to represent you. And this would further assume that, at the very least, the Representative would be willing to talk to you. It was with this hope and expectation that I drove last night to VVS High School to attend the public town hall of our NY22 Representative, Brandon Williams.

It was a shocking surprise that Representative Williams was not in the least interested in a dialogue of any kind.

Let me explain. Williams stood in front of the VVS auditorium and said that only questions submitted to the offsides moderator would be enter -

Random Thoughts

else could match, or try to.

More than all the other sports, baseball is tied to its voices, especially those on radio who work close to 200 times a year spinning a long, complex narrative.

Do that well, and you become part of your fans’ lives in a way no one else can.

Sterling was perfect for the Yankees. He didn’t spin marvelous stories like Vin Scully, didn’t have a homespun drawl like Red Barber or Ernie Harwell, didn’t blend into the bleachers the way Harry Caray did in St. Louis and Chicago.

To Sterlnig, it was all a performance. Though he didn’t need it, he always wore a suit and tie, and if he substituted excitement for perfect accuracy, not a single Yankees fan minded.

Besides, the calls were memorable enough.

Home runs…they were high…they were far…they were gone!

Once they were, you never knew if you were going to get a clever play on words or, better yet, Sterling breaking into song.

Yankees fans loved all of it. Opposing fans….well, if Mel Allen in earlier times represented the imperial championship wall in the Bronx, so did Sterling, and he punctuated every victory, even in early April, as if were late October and another banner was going to get added to the other 27.

Most of the great voices are now part of baseball’s past.

A sport so enamored with, and tied to, its history is now described by people who

tained. No verbal questions from the attendees at any time from anyone. The written questions were curated and chosen by the moderator. Even if an attendee wished for clarification of one of his answers, it was neither entertained nor allowed.

What followed was a tedious monologue and an exercise in power and control. Not to mention obfuscation of the actual issues.

Here’s an example of one of his responses. When one of the submitted questions asked about his support for continuing Social Security and Medicare, he claimed that he has always supported it. This is patently false.

As a member of the Republican Study Committee, he endorsed its budget, which includes raising the retirement age and tying it to life expectancy, means-testing high income earners so they would not get their benefits, and

are unlikely to stir the same kind of emotions, a steep price for progress, media options and shorter attention spans.

What Sterling’s career best represents is the sheer importance of being there Through all the decades, alongside the likes of Michael Kay, Charlie Steiner and especially Suzy Waldman, Sterling did the most respectful thing of all.

Even more than the players he chronicled, Sterling got dressed (up) early, showed up early, picked up all the tidbits in the clubhouse, then went up to the booth and gave his all, and took fans with him on that journey.

Yes, Sterling was fortunate to see a lot of winning.

Yet he also saw the dark times of the early 1990s, the ninth inning of Game 7 in Arizona in 2001, the surrender of the 3-0 lead to the Red Sox in 2004, the 15 years since the last title in 2009.

He saw enough of the game that, when he said “That’s baseball, Suzy”, he meant each of those three words.

Now, with that big-screen TV the club gave him and that commemorative uniform with 5,631 on the back, John Sterling has truly earned a chance to take some time off.

Heaven knows he’s earned it more than others, though if you listen closely, I bet you can still hear him. That voice was impossible to miss, and never to be forgotten.

Obviously and verifiably false.

All of the one and a half hours of the town hall was like this. I couldn’t help but remember the town halls of a former NY22 Representative, Anthony Brindisi of Utica. At his town halls, he would take questions directly from the audience and he addressed them on the spot and with respect.

Thinking that Representative Williams might be interested in an alternative format, I approached him at the very end of the event and asked to speak with him briefly. His response: “You’ve had your time.” And he turned his back to me and exited the stage. No handshake. No “Thank you for coming.” I was shocked and stunned. Needless to say, I will not be voting

Modified boat launch process at Cazenovia lakeside Park

Throughout this past winter the Cazenovia Lake Association, the village and town have been working diligently looking at ways to improve the prevention of new invasive species entering the lake. The critical weed that we are concerned with is Hydrilla, which can grow in 30 feet of water and will completely blanket the surface. This weed is significantly worse than Milfoil and currently there is not a herbicide treatment that is as effective as ProcellaCor for its control. This weed is currently in Cayuga Lake, the Connecticut River and a couple of smaller regional lakes. Once established, Hydrilla is virtually impossible to eradicate.

Fragments of Hydrilla and other invasive weeds can potentially be found on trailers, in bilges, transoms, on the deck of the boat and in live wells. Once a fragment enters the water it will reseed and spread. At that point it may be too late to control. Because of this, the town received a grant to purchase a boat cleaning station. The village has modified the launch protocol in order to ensure boats are clean before entering the water. While there is no 100% guaranteed solution for preventing all invasive species this is a significant improvement to help reduce the probability.

The changes to the launch process are as follows:

1. Upon arrival at the launch the boat steward will take some basic information.

2. The boat steward will look for a serialized security tag that connects the boat to the trailer indicating that the last lake the boat was on was Cazenovia. If the security tag is intact, the boat can launch immediately. A security tag can only be attached by the steward and can only be used once; once a tag has been removed, it cannot be reattached.

3. If there is no security tag, the steward closely inspects the boat. If it has organic matter present it has to go to the cleaning station where the owner will clean the boat. If the boat is clean the boat can launch immediately. We therefore

encourage everyone to arrive with their boat and trailer cleaned.

4. Just prior to leaving Lakeside Park, the boater may choose to have the steward install a new security tag which connects the boat to the trailer. This will speed up the launching of the boat if the security tag is still attached upon a later return to Lakeside Park.

The cleaning station is a device that is used to clean the areas of the boat which contain aquatic organic matter. It consists of three main components:

l A very large vacuum cleaner similar to a large shop-vac. This will be used to remove aquatic matter from inside the boat, water from the transom, live wells and if possible the bilge.

l A pressurized blower will enable accessing difficult to reach areas that have organic matter.

l Grabbing tools and a soft bristle brush to be used to get under the boat/ trailer and remove weeds.

Private property owners have much to gain from preventing invasion of Hydrilla. Such owners are encouraged to use the Lakeside Park boat launch and to participate in the cleaning protocol described here.

For more information please visit contact the Parks Commissioner Thomas Tait at 315-657-0473. Additionally, scan the QR code above to see the damage Hydrilla can do to a lake.

by Madison County on May 2, and will remain out of commission for an estimated five to ten years.

The bridge was built in 1966 as an overpass from Chittenango Creek, and had been monitored closely by the Department of Transportation over the past few years. At the end of April, the bridge was red-flagged by the NYSDOT and determined to be closed for “an indefinite period of time” according to a press release from Madison County Highway Department.

The Clark Street bridge is owned by Madison County. With a lack of funding to finance construction, it could take anywhere from five to 10 years to repair the bridge.

The Cazenovia Preservation Foundation and the Great Swamp Conservancy are two of the five land trusts in Central New York and the Mohawk Valley to receive funding through the State’s recent Conservation Partnership Program Grants.

The grant awards are funded through the state’s Environmental Protection Fund.

The Cazenovia Preservation Foundation (CPF), a land trust founded in 1967 that works to protect the historical, agricultural, and natural resources of the Cazenovia School District, received $24,500 that will be used to support new outreach programs and a new part-time Community Coordinator.

“Our walks and events have become increasingly popular, and with this money CPF will be able to expand its free offerings to a wider population,” said Carlos Gavilondo, president of the nonprofit’s board of directors.

The Cazenovia Police Department today was recognized as the first police department in New York state to have every member of its department complete an online program to train first responders in natural gas emergencies.

All 16 members of the Cazenovia police department received certification from the company’s free, web based, First Responders Utility Safety program.

National Grid officials presented the Cazenovia Police Department with an award plaque for their commitment to gas safety during a ceremony.

“It is our pleasure to take advantage of National Grid’s online training, which was an excellent, excellent site,” said Cazenovia Chief of Police Michael Hayes.

“We’ll make it a part of the field training for our officers.”

Earlier this month, Travis Barr and Alex Altomonte opened H. Grey Supply Co., a modern-day general store and outfitter at 53 Albany St. in Cazenovia.

The store offers a wide range of goods, including clothing, accessories, bath and body products, skincare brands, makeup, pantry items, household necessities and décor and bar supplies.

According to the owners, the store is focused on celebrating inclusivity, positivity and community.

“We made sure to curate small batch makers from all over the U.S., bringing ‘local’ from all over America into Cazenovia,” Altomonte said. “We try to source products (from vendors) that have an eco-conscience spirit behind them and that practice fair wage employment and sustainability.” Barr was born and raised in Cazenovia.

Do more than clean up

To the editor:

Thank you to Jason Gabak for informing readers about the Earth Day cleanup on Onodaga Lake. Lake Onodaga is an inspiring example of how we can fix past mistakes.

Whenever I visit a body of water, I gather trash, most of it plastic, and feel satisfied because I can see the difference I have made.

And yet, I also know that as long as the plastic tap is turned on, more plastic will clog up all bodies of water. We will clean up and clean up and clean up, until our legislators respond to the plastic crisis and turn off the tap.

The New York State assembly is currently considering such a bill.

The Packaging Reduction & Recycling Infrastructure Act (s4246-b/A5322b) will reduce single use plastic in New York state by 50% in twelve years. Less plastic production will mean less plastic trash washing into our lakes. It also means our kids will be exposed to less microplastics in their snacks.

While the bill is popular with New Yorkers and has a majority of co-sponsors in both the senate and the assembly, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Senate Speaker Andrea Stweart-Cousins have not brought the bill to a vote. They are getting lobbied hard because the plastic industry doesn’t want New York to turn off the tap.

It’s time for citizens to demand action. It’s time to do more than clean up (again and again.) It’s time for our legislators to reduce the plastic that is clogging our lakes and streams and trashing our children’s futures.

Let’s pass the Packaging Reduction and Recycling Infrastructure Act. sari FOrdHaM manliuS

LOMC is a non-profit literacy service that trains volunteer tutors and recruits adult learners ages 18 and older who are seeking assistance in reaching their literacy goals.

The program, which is run through libraries throughout Madison County, helps with everything from improving English language skills to earning a high school equivalency diploma or finding a new job. Learners receive free, weekly one-on-one sessions. All instruction materials are provided, and scheduling is flexible.

LOMC provides training for all volunteers and works to match each tutor with a learner who will benefit most from their strengths. All necessary materials are provided. Becoming a tutor is a two-hour commitment once a week.

According to LOMC Director Tara Truett, who manages the tutoring program at all the libraries, her position is funded by the Central New York Community Foundation.

and custom framing business. He also uses the space to showcase a collection of historical photographs, antique lanterns, signal signs, maps, and other railroad-related items. On the depot’s front lawn sits a decommissioned caboose that Gissin purchased in Reading, Pennsylvania, and meticulously restored.

“There is a lot of neat history here,” said Gissin. “[For example,] President Theodore Roosevelt stopped at the depot for 10 minutes in 1900 on a whistle stop.”

The depot was built for the Elmira, Cortland & Northern Railroad and was later a stop on the Lehigh Valley Railroad.

The building stands on the site of a larger train station that was constructed for the original rail line, the Canastota & Cazenovia Railroad (C&C RR).

C&C RR began offering regular trips between Cazenovia and Canastota in 1870. Cazenovia’s second railroad, the Syracuse & Chenango Valley Railroad, did not start running until a few years later. It transported thousands of visitors to Cazenovia and helped define the community as a tourist destination.

“In 1868 or so, Cazenovia had a lot of in-

prices down.”

CGC has not offered annuals at its spring sale for a few years, primarily because it is challenging to compete with major retailers.

According to Hasko, the idea of selling annuals in pots and planters this year was inspired by a collection of unique pots that was donated by one of the club’s members.

“We thought this would be a great way for those members who don’t have perennials to share, to contribute in another way,” Hasko said. “They can select one of the available pots or planters, fill it with plants, and then donate that to the club for the sale. These containers are amazing — brass, copper, ceramic. [There are] really cool options.”

For over 70 years, the non-profit CGC has been working, often behind the scenes, to beautify the Cazen-

training, and incidentals are funded by the money left from the dissolution of the Literacy Coalition in Madison County some years back, as well as smaller grants [that are] applied for on a needs basis,” said Truett. “The following libraries provide a stipend for local coordinators, as well as the space and publicity, [for] LOMC: Cazenovia, Canastota, Chittenango, Bridgeport, and Hamilton. Library support is integral to running this program, and we would not be successful without their support.”

According to Carla Zimmerman, literacy coordinator for LOMC and Cazenovia Public Library, LOMC has used Intercambio resources for its students at Mid-York libraries for more than 10 years. Over 700 organizations across the United States also use Intercambio’s learning materials and curriculum.

“LOMC has seen an influx of English language learners over the past few years,” said Zimmerman. “For example, we are tutoring students from Mexico, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Iraq, Brazil, Ukraine, Guatemala, France, and Puerto Rico. The Cazenovia school district has two ENL teachers who work with

dustry,” said Gissin. “You don’t think about it, but there was a sash factory, there was a canning factory, there was a clock factory, there was a foundry. All that stuff was here, and the roads were garbage. At this point, the businesspeople decided, ‘Let’s go to Canastota with the railroad.’ Railroading was relatively new at that point. Why did they go there?

Because the New York Central Railroad was there and the Erie Canal. Now, they could take their supplies [on a train] instead of on a [wagon] down a dirt road. That’s why the railroad actually came here. It didn’t come here as a tourist attraction, and it didn’t come here to get from one part of the country to the other; it was to get to Canastota, the hub.”

Periodically facing bankruptcy and reorganization, the railroad changed names multiple times as it developed.

“The railroad was not very profitable,” noted Gissin.

In 1967, the Lehigh Valley Railroad abandoned its Cazenovia depot.

According to Gissin, the death of the railroad was largely a consequence of competition from interstate highways.

He explained that the rise of automobile travel led to the end of passenger train service on most railroads.

“Americans don’t like time schedules; they

ovia community and bring together people with mutual interests in home gardens and civic improvement. Proceeds from the 2024 spring sale will help fund CGC’s village beautification efforts, including its spring/ summer plantings and winter holiday garlands, wreaths, and window boxes.

“You may have seen us out there in the last week cleaning up the south end of Cazenovia Lake for Earth Day and planting pansies throughout the village,” said Hasko.

CGC is a member of both the VI District of the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State, Inc. and the Central Atlantic Region of National Garden Clubs, Inc.

Founded in 1949 and federated in 1960, the club aims to stimulate interest in horticulture, develop skills in the beautification of home and community, create an awareness of national and local conservation problems, inspire a desire to serve in these

students from all different countries. When I started in 2011, I believe our school district had one ENL teacher. Empowering newcomers to our area by offering ENL services is important. The adults we teach are all interested in participating and working in our communities. We have helped many of our students prepare for the American citizenship exam. They are the new Americans.”

LOMC is organizing the May 21 programs to provide additional training to current ENL tutors, attract new tutors, and bring awareness of Intercambio’s resources to area organizations that focus on ENL.

The morning workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is a training session for people interested in becoming ENL tutors, as well as current tutors hoping to gain new skills.

The event will feature presentations, modeling, and interactive discussions about topics such as adult learning theory, cultural humility, confidence and motivation, teaching pronunciation and grammar, providing corrections, and giving feedback.

The afternoon session will run from 2 to 4

want to go on their own time,” he said. “The railroad came in and they still drove. [The trains] weren’t getting passenger service. The freight service wasn’t bad, but most of these companies were gone by that point. Ridership was down, funds were down, so they closed. That’s the sad part, but [the railroad] did put Cazenovia on the map.”

Gissin said that before he purchased the former Lehigh Valley Railroad depot, it was owned by Cazenovia Lumber Company and then by the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation, which completed some initial work on the building. Its uses included a youth center and an alternative education center.

During his upcoming presentation, Gissin will provide further insight into the railroad’s impact on Cazenovia, share the story of how he ended up buying the property, and discuss the years of work he has dedicated to restoring and preserving the depot, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.

“airplane tales”

On May 9 at 6 p.m., James Coulthart will present “Airplane Tales: The Homefront Edition 1941-1945.”

Coulthart is a Central New York military aviation historian who gives talks on local military and commercial aviation to local li-

areas, and further the goals and objectives of the regional and national organizations to which it belongs.

According to Hasko, CGC currently has 72 members and is always accepting more.

“We greatly value the fresh perspectives and contributions of our members,” she said.

Hasko, who is an avid gardener, also stated that before joining the club, she was impressed by how wonderful the village looked throughout the year.

“Once I retired, I thought [joining] would be a great way for me to become involved in the community and make a contribution,” she said. “That was a great decision; the club has wonderful members who are generous with their knowledge. It’s quite a gem.”

To learn more about getting involved with CGC and the many ways it contributes to the community, visit

p.m. and is targeted at administrators, directors, and coordinators of ENL programs, as well as workforce management. According to Truett, the workshop will cover Intercambio’s resources and how they can help strengthen any group’s interactions with English language learners.

“If you are looking for efficient and effective English language fluency assistance for your teachers, aides, and employees, please plan on attending [this workshop],” Truett said. “Literacy Outreach for Madison County, NY has worked with ENL clients for twenty years and has been using the new ‘Confidence and Connections’ resources from Intercambio with great success. Veteran and newly trained tutors are finding this series easy to use with limited training.”

To register for the workshops, email by May 14. Light refreshments will be provided.

braries and historical societies.

He is a lifelong resident of Oneida and a retired professional executive who spent 43 years working for non-profit agencies throughout the Northeast.

In the spring and fall, he is an adjunct instructor of business at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica.

Coulthart, who has been interested in aviation history since he was a child, has curated 11 PowerPoint presentations about World War II aviation histories and commercial regional airlines.

According to Coulthart, his upcoming presentation contains stories he discovered while researching other programs.

“Included are tales of domestic life in a time of rationing food, gasoline, and other materials,” Coulthart said. “Air raid wardens, air raid lookouts, and women in the manufacturing war industries are covered. Likewise, the mobilization of many area manufacturers [is] mentioned. The last portion of the presentation will reveal details of a failed Nazi sabotage plot and clues to the unrecovered money involved.”

Both events will be held in the Betsy Kennedy Community Room and are free and open to the public.

isha Davies and Board of Director’s President Kaleb Wilson both spoke about the profound impact the Constables have made on the library.

Village of Cazenovia Trustee and Tree Commissioner Tom Tait also spoke about the Constables’ revered status as residents.

“There is no precedent for this recognition and frankly, that is appropriate. Bob and Bobbie Constable’s contributions and involvement is unprecedented,” Tait said. “Their unique, kind, selfless and generous spirit has helped so many organizations, projects and individuals throughout the decades, in good times and bad”. Tait added “your legacy is indelible and enduring.”

Tait also noted that the Red Sunset maple is renowned for its many favorable attributes including strength and beauty.

“It is not by chance this variety was selected as it mirrors your wonderful qualities and beauty,” he said. “These trees will be forever known as the Constable maples.”

By PHil BlaCkwell

Even with half its lineup out due to the start of spring break, the Cazenovia girls track and field team made a strong showing at the Onondaga Central Invitational on April 19.

Amassing 110 points, the Lakers topped the other 17 Class B/C/D teams in the field. Only Class A power Jamesville-DeWitt edged Cazenovia by four points for the overall title.

Reid McMurtrie and Izzy Stromer-Galley led the team with three scores each, including individual wins in their signature events.

McMurtrie won the 800 meter run with a season best time of 2:29.26 and returned to run a leg on the Lakers’ winning 4x100 meter relay. Stromer-Galley captured the 200 in her best time of the spring, 27.35 seconds, and anchored the 4x100 to victory. Both runners also contributed to the team’s second-place finish in the 4x400.

Audie Spring and Claire Marris ran the other legs on Cazenovia’s victorious 4x100 as it crossed the line in an exceptional time of 51.64 seconds. Alyssa Wardell and Lily Kogut also helped the 4x400 to its silver medal time of 4:24.16.

Spring also had two outstanding individual performances, long jumping to a state qualifier eligible distance of 16 feet 5 ¼ inches to earn second place and dashing to second in the 100 meter in 13.70.

Marris was also impressive, running personal best, state qualifier times in both hurdle events for a pair of second-place finishes. Her 100 meter hurdle time of 15.92 was among the top 25 in the state this spring while her 400 meter hurdle effort of 1:10.97 was among the top 50 in New York so far this season according to MileSplit. com.

Wardell was also a triple threat, adding a third

place finish in the 400 meter run in 1:04.76 and a sixth-place 15’3” in the long jump to her relay success, all season best performances.

Kogut was impressive in the 1,500, racing to a third place time of 5:19.43 in her first attempt at the event. Zoey Gagne was just one place back, clocking a season-best 5:27.33. The Lakers also picked up two scores in the 3,000 as Dinah Gifford (11:54.52 for fourth) and Haylee Stearns (12:26.04 for sixth) both ran season-best times.

Delanie Dowling, Raeny Thompson, Ellie Morgan and Becca Brooks capped off the Lakers’ scoring on the track as all four ran personal best legs to help the team to a fourth place 11:26.34 finish in the 4x800.

Maddy Rothfeld led the team in the throws once again, earning third in the shot at 28’3 1/2” and fifth in the discus at 80’1”. Eleanor Mongeau led the team in the triple jump, earning fifth place with a sectional-qualifying leap of 30’3”, while Sofie Reger was tops in the pole vault with a fourth place height of 7’6”.

A week later, in last Friday’s Onondaga Invitational, Kogut provided the big highlight when, in the general-field one-mile run, Kogut went 5:37.97 to prevail by more than three seconds over East Syracuse Minoa’s Rachael Burt (5:42.12).

McMurtrie finished fourth in the 800 in a season-best 2:28.54 and helped Kogut, StromerGalley and Wardell go 10:36.93 for fourth place in the 4x800. Wardell went 14’7” for sixth place in the long jump and Becca Brooks had a seventh-place discus throw of 78’8”

Cazenovia boys tennis team continues to dominate foes

Through its first five matches of the season, the Cazenovia boys tennis team has not surrendered a single point, a key point of strength going into Monday’s key clash with Manlius Pebble Hill.

The Lakers’ fifth consecutive shut-

out took place last Monday afternoon against LaFayette, a 5-0 decision where, again, there was little real resistance. Two matches were forfeited, and in doubles Traian Cherciu and Garret Lounsbury did not give up a game to the Lancers’ duo of Darren Benjamin and Ian Colburn 8-0.

Meanwhile, in singles play Evan Molloy turned back Hudson Borchert 6-0, 6-0, while by those same scores Godfred Assante got a victory over Logan Hazeltine.

Other than this match, both the Lakers and Chittenango rested during the week. Cazenovia has matches with Liver-

pool and Phoenix before it faces the Bears Thursday and Marcellus on Friday. This same busy slate awaits Chittenango, who besides from its match with the Lakers would play Phoenix, MPH and Skaneateles on consecutive days and then go to Homer on Friday afternoon.

Cazenovia girls lacrosse gains win over J-E, 10-8

Having only gone 2-6 in the first half of the regular season, the Cazenovia girls lacrosse team was in need of any kind of victory.

The way the Lakers got it last Tuesday had to instill some confidence as, trailing JordanElbridge at halftime on the Eagles’ home turf, it roared back, went out in front and stayed there to prevail by a score of 10-8.

One storyline going into the game was seeing whether senior Charlie Prior would reach the rare milestone of winning 300 career draws. She did so, ultimately claiming eight draws.

A tightly played first half saw J-E inch out in front, 7-6, but Cazenovia made sure it didn’t stay that way, fighting back and playing strong defense the rest of the way, limiting the Eagles to just two goals as Eliza Smith ran her total to seven saves.

Prior, the Lakers’ top goal scorer, added five more to give her 36 for the season, and

she had enough help, too, as Sally Hughes scored twice and Madison DeAngelis got a pair of assists. Hayden Bubble, Izzy Stromer-Galley and Tara Pratt had one goal apiece.

Now Cazenovia would rest for a week before a crucial stretch of three consecutive road games starting Tuesday at Cortland, continuing Thursday at Central Square and concluding Saturday at Oswego.

As the girls rested, the boys Lakers returned to action twice at home, starting on Thursday when it faced Whitesboro and, battling all the way to the final whistle, pulled out an 8-7 victory to climb back to the .500 mark at 4-4.

Whitesboro out-shot Cazenovia, but Tucker Ives made 16 saves, six more than his counterpart, Anthony Badolato, and all the work Ives did gave his teammates a shot of confidence.

The Lakers produced just enough on the other end, with Paul Mitchell earning

his first three-goal hat trick in varsity play to match the three goals from Alex Kuper. D.B. Falge added a goal and two assists, with Owen Porter earning a goal and Finn Hagan getting an assist.

Then LaFayette/Onondaga showed up at the new turf complex on Saturday afternoon, beginning the second half of Cazenovia’s regular season, and the Lancers would again get the best of the Lakers 10-5.

Having lost 8-5 when the two sides met just nine days earlier, Cazenovia could not turn it around, only getting three goals from Kuper and two goals from Mitchell as Falge was held to one assist. Ives got 11 saves, but four different LaFayette/Onondaga players – River Porter, Bruce Benedict, Brennan Hill and Carter Chapman – had two goals apiece.

Cazenovia’s boys would host Cortland Monday and go to Whitney Point on Wednesday, while the girls Lakers have

three straight road games at Cortland, Central Square and Oswego over a five-day span.

Having already played half its regularseason schedule, the Chittenango girls lacrosse team rested during most of the school break.

The boys Bears visited Oswego last Monday night, it just could not produce on a consistent basis to keep up with the Buccaneers, who gradually pulled away to prevail 14-7.

Chittenango managed just one goal in both the second and third quarters, which helped Oswego extend its margin to 11-5 led by Tanner Defren and Cooper Fitzgerald, who gained five goals apiece.

Brendon Barnard, who had three goals and three assists, was the only Chittenango player to score more than once. Single goals were credited to Norm Coomer, Kole Smith, Henry Miller and Cole Dawkins as Connor Bradbury recorded 16 saves.

Cazenovia baseball has close games in Myrtle Beach

Armed with a 2-2 early-season record, the Cazenovia baseball team made its way back to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where over the course of the spring break it would meet both local opposition and fellow Section III travelers.

The traveling sides included reigning sectional Class AA champion Liverpool, who engaged in a back-and-forth classic with the Lakers last Monday afternoon before the Warriors emerged to prevail 7-6.

Mostly thanks to a three-run fourth inning, the Lakers were up 4-1 before Liverpool struck for five runs in the bottom of the fifth off Cazenovia pitcher Izaak Gilbert.

The Lakers tied it, 6-6, in the top of the sixth, but a run in the bottom of the sixth gave the Warriors the lead for good and Jameson Stevens, pitching 2 1/3 innings in relief of Chris Baker, got the final outs. Tyler Vivacqua earned three hits as Austin Burch and Dylan Wiggins drove in two runs apiece.

Robby Livingston singled and drove in two runs. Joey Awald got two hits and an RBI, with Jack Donlin, Danny Bliss and Jake Hightchew also getting RBIs as Tyler Vivacqua’s three hits paced Liverpool.

More excitement followed in Tuesday’s game against Elmira Notre Dame, only here the Lakers were the ones emerging victorious, prevailing 7-6 in eight innings.

They traded runs until the bottom of the sixth, when Cazenovia scored twice to break out of a 2-2 tie, only to have Elmira Notre Dame get four runs in the top of the seventh and chase Donlin, who to that point had earned 11 strikeouts.

But the Lakers fought back and, in the bottom of the seventh, tied it 6-6. Then, with two out in the bottom of the eighth, Bliss, who had pitched a scoreless frame to keep it tied, won it with a single that scored Nico Segall.

Taven Reilley had got things going with an inside-the-park home run in the bottom of the first as he added two other hits. Hightchew went three-for-four and joined

Awald in the RBI column.

The week ended with Cazenovia taking a 15-0 defeat to Cherry Hill West (New Jersey), who used a 10-run third inning to get away. Donlin’s first-inning triple was the lone Lakers hit.

One of the best players in Cazenovia history, Jack Byrnes, is continuing his success at Hobart College, where he was just named Liberty League Rookie of the Week, hitting .429 in three starts and having two scoreless stints on the mound as the Statesmen won four of five games to move above the .500 mark to 15-12.

Chittenango played twice last Monday at Gutchess Field in Cortland, finally getting into the win column while splitting a pair of close contests.

The Bears edged the Solvay Bearcats 5-4, and it required a comeback. All of Solvay’s runs came in the first innings, and it still led 4-1 when Chitenango turned it around.

Two runs in the sixth cut the margin to 4-3, and the Bears added the tying and

winning runs in the seventh. Andrew Kielbasa led the comeback with a single, double and two RBIs, while A.J. Valente and Micah Schiralli also drove in runs. Kyle Peryer pitched and shut out Solvay over the course of the last five innings, earning nine strikeouts. It looked like the Bears would get the sweep when it led East Syracuse Minoa 7-1 through four innings, only to see the Spartans make it all the way back and prevail 8-7. Two runs in the fifth, a run in the sixth and a four-run rally in the top of the seventh erased Chittenango’s lead built up by two hits from Eli Lefort and two RBIs from Mason Corlis. Valente, Drew Thomas and Evan Tianello also drove in runs. Then Chittenango ran into Mexico on Wednesday and were no-hit by Tigers sophomore ace Carson Race. In the 5-0 defeat, Cooper Smith drew a pair of walks and Schiralli also walked, but Race contained the Bears otherwise, striking out six.

The evening celebration will bring together organization leaders, medical staff, community members and supporters to highlight the accomplishment of the first phase of the hospital’s transformation project and share what’s to come for the organization in the second phase. With construction set to resume in the immediate future, Phase II will include an expanded and relocated radiology department featuring a dedicated women’s imaging suite, a state-of-the-art laboratory department, an expanded rehabilitation department and a brand new main entrance for patients and visitors alike.

“We’re excited to partner with Colgate University as lead supporters of Community Memorial and host this event to celebrate our success and showcase the promising future of the hospital,” said Jeff Coakley, president and CEO. “A night of celebration for our hospital will bring together community members in a fun and formal setting. We look forward to welcoming guests.”

With dinner and dancing to music provided by the band Grand Central Station, the evening is sure to offer an exciting opportunity for attendees to socialize and gain deeper insights into the upcoming physical transformation of the hospital.

“Celebrating the success of the completed inpatient wing and all-new Emergency Department while bringing our community members and supporters together is our collective initiative,” said Coakley.

Caz artisans present work of jeweler

Cazenovia Artisans Visiting Artist Program will present jeweler Jean Zofia Edwards: “Color Stories” through May 31 at 39 Albany Street, Cazenovia.

Jewelry designed with semi-precious gemstones, handmade lampwork beads, fresh water pearls, sterling silver and other assorted beads are the hallmarks of Edwards’ jewelry.
