ACQUISITION DECISION: The Cazenovia Village Board has approved the purchase of 6 Farnham St., left. The Cazenovia Fire Department will look to utilize the property for additional parking, among other uses, in the future.

Your Community, Your News,


The Cazenovia Village Board has decided to move forward with the acquisition of 6 Farnham St. On the evening of March 7, after an executive session, board members agreed to pay $91,750 for the parcel adjacent to the Cazenovia Fire Department. “The property is important to the department,” Village Trustee David Porter said. “It will allow them to respond more quickly to fires and emergencies.” The acquisition will be helpful to the fire department, as volunteer members have struggled with parking in the past. The firehouse’s location at 127 Albany St. did not allow much space for parked cars while emergency vehicles were being dispatched. Neighboring businesses, Buyea’s Hardware and Colligan & Sons Services Center, cooperatively See Farnham, page 13

Harpoon Brewery holds tasting at Caz Pizza Snow doesn’t stop

municipal meeting

By Pierce Smith C azenovia Pizzeria opened their doors and tapped their kegs for a Harpoon Brewery beer-tasting event the evening of March 10. An ambassador from the Boston brewery visited the local restaurant/bar to educate the 50 residents in attendance about two of the company’s popular drafts, the IPA and the seasonal Celtic Ale. “A lot of places Cazenovia carry Harpoon, the Lincklaen House, Caz Pizza and the Brewster Inn all serve our beer,” said Ed Valenta, Harpoon representative. “We’re still growing; we are part of the craft brewery movement that’s been gaining momentum. But we’re just happy to get the word out and have more people try Harpoon.” Of-age patrons enjoyed free beer samples from 6 to 8 p.m. and drink deals at the restaurant’s bar. Harpoon Brewery is currently celebrating their 25th year of operation. The brewery, which started modestly in Massachusetts, has expanded to two locations, in Boston and Windsor, Vt.

By Pierce Smith


Residents pack into Caz Pizza on March 10 to sample Harpoon Brewery’s popular IPA, and Celtic Ale. Having undergone construction last year, Caz Pizza now offers diners and drinkers extra space to enjoy the restaurant’s atmosphere. The company’s collection of beers has also expanded, which now features 15 beers and a number of limited edition drafts. For more information on Harpoon’s selection, visit Last year Caz Pizza increased their square-footage at 62 Albany St. Renovations were made to the neighboring space, including the construction of a bar and more seating for patrons.

The restaurant also obtained a liquor license in January of 2010, offering a wide variety of spirits to customers. Owner Tom Hayes said he has been happy to see larger crowds staying to enjoy the freshly baked pizzas in-house. “We’ve seen our business’s take-out numbers go from 59 percent, to about 39 percent,” Hayes said. “People have been diningin; they like to get their

pizzas hot and fresh out of the oven.” For those diners that still want the pizzeria’s food, but do not wish to make the trip to Albany Street, the restaurant offers a comprehensive online menu and delivery service seven days a week. For more information on specialty menu items, or to place an order, visit asp?campusid=902 or call Caz Pizza at 655-4161.

Movies, music and more at the Cazenovia Public Library All are invited to the Cazenovia Public Library for four events this week beginning on March 21 with two showings of “The Social Network,” followed by the “Blues Frees the Spirit” workshop on March 23, a “Breast Cancer” presentation on March 24, and “National Velvet” on March 25th. ‘The Social Network’ screening The story about the founders of the social-networking website, Facebook, will be shown at 1 and 7 p.m. on Monday March 21.This fast and witty creation myth is about how Facebook grew from Mark Zuckerberg’s insecure geek-at-Harvard days into a phenomenon with 500 million users. “The Social Network” is rated PG-13 and runs for 120 minutes.

Blues Frees the Spirit A songwriting/poetry workshop with musician/composers John Hutson and Monk Rowe, will be held at 6:30 p.m. on three consecutive Wednesdays, beginning on March 23 and continuing on March 30 and April 6. Blues music has endured for a hundred plus years, providing a format for songs of despair and joy, lost and found love, and as backgrounds for revelry and dancing. Blues songs have become American classics, whether they are slow ballads, upbeat swing tunes, or rock & roll classics. See Library, page 26

Only a handful of hardy residents were able to make it out of their buried driveways and attend the Cazenovia Village Board meeting on the evening of March 7. Board members had good news to report, and quickly moved through the agenda items. Just recently, the village of Cazenovia has been notified by the New York State Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation that they will receive a grant from the Environmental Protection Fund for the amount of $133,965. This money will go towards the renovation and preservation of Carpenter’s Barn, at 1 Forman St. While the Carpenter’s Barn Committee has to match funds awarded by the EPF, this comes as good news, as they had received a Strategic Investment Program grant last year for $250,000. As the weather improves, the committee will look to begin their projects. The rowing club is currently using the building as their training facility, and have requested permission to inhabit Carpenter’s Barn through Memorial Day. In other Village Board news: The board publicly commented for the first time on the report compiled by the Shared Services Committee last year. Mayor Thomas Dougherty did not agree with the notion that consolidating the Cazenovia Police Department and employing the Madison County Sheriffs Office for law enforcement would save the village money. A public hearing on the tentative 2011-12 village budget will be held at 6:45 p.m. on April 4. Effective June 1, rates at the village cemetery will increase. Compared to average market prices, plots at Cazenovia’s graveyards are considerably inexpensive, Amy Mann said. A small increase in pricing will net the village more revenue, and still stay economical for those wishing to lay their loved ones to rest, she said. Water prices will increase for the high-volume users of Cazenovia. While the minimal users will not experience bigger bills, those using large quantities of water will notice a 10-percent increase in their spending. Notifications will be sent out with the April 15 bills, informing residents of the change. Consumers will first see their usage reflected in bills for Oct. 15. The rate-hike is in hopes to procure funds for the eventual replacement of the water pipes from 1890, which currently distribute the village’s water supply. Village board meetings are conducted the first Monday of each month, in the municipal building at 90 Albany St. The next regular Cazenovia Village Board meeting will be at 7 p.m. April 4.

Opinion Editorial

Eat well, age well March is the American Dietetic Association’s National Nutrition Month – how are you celebrating it? We received a letter last week from Kimberly Vespi, Nutrition Director for Loretto’s AdvancedMeal Food Services, that shared some tips about making proper nutrition a habit. “Proper nutrition is more important than ever as we age,” Vespi says. “While good nutrition may not turn back the hands of time, it can certainly help you prevent, treat and recover from illness and improve your quality of life in later years. As we age, we may need fewer calories. However, we still need the same nutrients.” Here are those tips: - Consume calcium and vitamin D-rich foods. These nutrients help maintain bone health and reduce the risk of fractures. With age, we are less efficient in absorbing calcium from foods and often don’t consume enough foods that contain calcium and vitamin D. Low fat dairy foods as well as fortified juices, cereals and breads are good choices. - Stay hydrated! As we age, our thirst mechanism can decrease. Many older adults tend to limit fluid consumption to prevent frequent trips to the restroom. Try keeping a water bottle with you throughout the day to sip on. - Fill up on fiber. Fiber can prevent constipation, control hunger and weight and help decrease your risk for heart disease. Fruits and vegetables are always an excellent choice. Whole grain breads, cereals, rice and pasta also provide fiber. - Choose lean protein. Maintaining muscle mass is important as we age. Fish, skinless chicken and turkey, nuts and beans are excellent sources of protein.

Guest commentary:

School District budget needs cost-effective cuts By Colleen Larkin Grabosky Fellow Cazenovia School District taxpayers, we all realize that there is a great deal at stake as a result of the proposed school budget that will be voted on in May. No one envies the school board members with the task of having to decide what and where to cut, nor the realization that many of those cuts will directly impact the lives of members of our community. The Board of Education meeting held on Monday Feb. 14 was an educational experience. It was impressive to see so many young people speaking so eloquently about the teachers and programs they cared about. At times, the performance of some of the board members seemed just that; a performance. It felt as if numbers had been crunched, lists prepared (that the general public were not allowed to view) and decisions had been reached that would be finalized, not because of public or faculty input, but in spite of it. I’m sure every item that has been put forward as a possible cut causes someone, and often several people, pain. It was most distressing, however, to learn that there is one program that is being considered for complete elimination: the agricultural program. After almost 80 years of success at Cazenovia Central, I can’t imagine losing such a valuable program because once it’s gone, it will be nearly impossible to bring back. The most recent New York State Secretary of Agriculture, Mr. Patrick Hooker, is a Cazenovia FFA alumnus. Several of our distinguished citizens, business leaders and politicians have completed the agricultural courses at Cazenovia and been FFA members. When I asked a local businessman if he would be willing to sign a petition to keep the program in our school, he replied “Everyone who eats should be willing to sign the petition.” The agricultural program brings so much to our students, courses in agricultural science, small animal care, business management, opportunities to compete in state and national competitions that promote public speaking, essay writing, leadership and even proper parliamentary procedure. The opportunities for careers in agriculture are abundant and the FFA program gives students a real advantage when they get to college. I recently acted as a judge at an FFA competition held at the VVS school district and was impressed by the professionalism and maturity of every FFA student I met. Agriculture is an important part of Cazenovia’s past, present and future, and we should do all we can to protect and invest in its success. Now for the part of my letter that is going to get me in trouble. As is all too often the case when difficult choices have to be made, the decision makers search everywhere they can except in their own backyard. Mr. Dubik referred to state mandates frequently and how nonmandated programs were more vulnerable to cuts. He also mentioned that the state mandates that each district needs only one superintendent and one principal; yet we

have one superintendent, two assistant superintendents, three principals, a vice-principal and an athletic director. One assistant superintendent position has been vacant for awhile. Some of us thought that prudent during a time of budget crisis. Yet the position was very recently filled when administrators knew cuts would have to be made. Would it be better to cut an entire program like the agriculture program, than give up one administrator? I also find it interesting that as enrollment drastically declines we have more administration than ever before. When my sisters’ and my graduated from Cazenovia with class sizes of 220 and 180 some students (versus the 80 or 90 students currently enrolled in our kindergarten and first grade classes), we had one superintendent, and no full-time athletic director, not to mention all the clerical positions this amount of administration entails. I know the suggestion of administrative cutbacks is often considered heresy, but I put it to the taxpayers: Do we keep the hard working teachers making $50,000 a year or hire yet another assistant super at twice or three times that salary to “arrange meetings” and “have conversations” rather than giving our kids the life skills they will need to succeed? In for a penny, in for a pound. While I’m making all these radical proposals, here’s some data from the 2008 payroll, the most recent I could find. If we scale back to one superintendent at approximately $140,000, we save about $192,000 in salaries (almost one-tenth of the shortfall in just two cuts). Now, if we can survive without an assistant principal, we save another $80,000. To continue in this subversive fashion, if the middle school principal would consider early retirement, we could make do with one principal between the middle and elementary schools, saving another $107,000. If you’re keeping up with the math here, we’re up to over $485,000 in savings and not one student has had to lose a teacher or class offering. Savings of nearly a half-million with just three personnel cuts and one early retirement? Sounds like cost effective cutting to me. I’m not naïve enough to believe that such suggestions would ever be seriously considered, but I would like a comparison to be made between the size of the salaries in question and the lack of direct impact these positions have on the students versus the size of the salaries of the faculty members facing elimination and the very real and positive impact their classes have on the students. I heard a great deal about sacrifices the other night. Why, administratively at least two things have happened. Mr. Dubik has agreed to a wage freeze this year and to contribute 5 percent more to his own insurance costs last year. This is sincerely to be admired, and if all the members of the union would do the same, I’m sure it would go a long way to helping the children to attain the best education possible and shouldn’t that be our most important bottom line?

While it has been our intent to send in a “thank you” for this wonderful blanket long ago - busy work weeks, travel, being parents and grandparents and even some illness have all made time fly. As a result, we are just now getting around to sending in this letter. This evening, with the cold snow of this March evening flying outside our window, we are very

grateful to have this beautiful, warm quilt here in our home. LISA LARIBEE, AND FAMILY CANASTOTA

Consolidation may be key to saving programs and teachers in Caz

To the editor: With the latest cutbacks in state funding to education, local school districts are scrambling to make cuts to budgets. Cazenovia district is looking to balance their budget through teacher and program cuts. There may be another way. Consider if all nine school districts in Madison County became one

district. Madison County School District, with one superintendent, one business office with purchasing power for all schools, shared services, etc. Some people might argue we would lose our identity, I don’t believe we would. We will always be Cazenovia Elementary, Middle and High School. Every county has socio-economic diversity. Great schools, like Cazenovia, have lots of parent involvement, high expectations for their children and again, socio-economic factors. Consolidation might be something to consider.

Cazenovia Community Preschool is pleased to announce their Spring Reading Camp. The Reading Camp is a research-based early reading intervention program for children entering grades Kindergarten through fourthgrade. The eight-week program uses small group instruction to address the five key components (phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary) recommended by the National Reading Panel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pre, and post-assessment results of the students in reading program provide evidence of its effectiveness. Not only are there measurable gains of the skills covered for every student, but the childrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; confidence with reading is noticeably improved. That â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a-haâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; moment when all the direct, explicit instruction â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;gelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; never ceases to be gratifying for the student and the educator.â&#x20AC;? Said instructor Kelli Johnson, a NYS certified teacher who has led the program since its inception. Parents of children who have participated in the past have seen the positive impact firsthand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who would think that a reading camp would be fun? Our daughter did. She honestly was excited to go to each session. She learned a number of new reading strategies that she continuously applied throughout the following school year,â&#x20AC;? said Keith Comfort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She also gained confidence in her abilities to tackle spelling and reading challenges. She wants to sign up for reading camp again this summer.â&#x20AC;? CCP is still registering for this program, but space is limited. The eight-week session for the spring begins March 28 and lasts until May 25. Contact the director, Torrey Lansing at 655-4259 for additional information.

Public workshop for Madison County farmland protection to be held in April By Lauren Lines

Cazenovia Area Community Development Association The Towns of Cazenovia, Nelson and Lincoln are working together to prepare Agriculture & Farmland Protection Plans, assisted by grant funding from the NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets. A Steering Committee including farmers, local officials and landowners from each of the three towns is coordinating the planning effort. Farmers, farmland owners, business operators and residents are invited to attend a public workshop on Saturday, April 2. There will be two sessions: 11 a.m. at the Lincoln Town Hall, and 2 p.m. at the Nelson Town Hall. Light refreshments will be provided. The workshops will provide an opportunity for all participants to share their perspectives on farming issues with the Steering Committee that is working on the Farmland Protection Plan, as well as Town officials from Nelson, Cazenovia and Lincoln, and the Town’s planning consultant. Representatives of the agencies that are involved in farmland and agriculture in Madison County have been invited to attend. The Farmland Protection Plans will describe farming in Nelson, Cazenovia and Lincoln, and the significance of agriculture to the community and the regional economy, identify issues and opportunities relating to farmland, agricultural practices and agriculture-related businesses. Tools that can be applied by town governments and others at the local and regional level to support farming and agri-

business will be identified, and a plan of action that identifies specific tasks, responsible entities, sources of funding, and a timeframe for implementation will be prepared. The towns expect to complete their Farmland Protection Plans by early 2012. The workshop will feature a brief introduction of, and presentations from, representatives of organizations that work with farmers in Madison County. Representatives of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County, Soil & Water Conservation District, and Farm Bureau have been invited to participate. An overview of the planning process and the agricultural resources in Nelson, Cazenovia and Lincoln will include interactive exercises to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats relating to agriculture in Nelson, Cazenovia and Lincoln will be facilitated by Stuart I. Brown Associates, the consulting firm retained by the three towns. These workshops are the first in a series to support the Farmland Protection Plans. Two other public workshops, planned for summer 2011, will focus on agricultural economic development as well as farmland protection strategies such as conservation easements, land use regulations, local rights to farm laws and tax relief programs. For additional information, contact Barbara Henderson, of Cazenovia Area Community Development, at 6557651 or Barbara Johnston, of Stuart I. Brown Associates at (585) 295-6636.

Dragonfly Beads will be taking flight, and opening a new location in Cazenovia. The bead store will move its Manlius store to 53 Albany St. in Cazenovia, and open on April 1. Owner Erin Meharg, a Cazenovia native, believes the store will be a great fit with the chic shops and restaurants in town. “We wanted to be in an area where

there was more pedestrian traffic, upscale shopping and dining opportunities with a real sense of community; and Cazenovia was ideal,” said Meharg. The store has been located in Manlius since May of 2005, but Meharg felt that it was time to move the operation. “I graduated from Cazenovia High School, have family and friends in Cazenovia. This is home for me,” she said. “It makes sense to have that support surrounding my business.” The new location will open with a large trunk show, featuring a vendor from the Southwest and beads from

around the world. “This is a trunk show like no other” Meharg said. She reports that it will be like having “a second store within the store.” High quality turquoise, emerald, ruby, sapphire, chalcedony and pearls will be available, as well as many more beads ranging from $5 to $1000. Meharg likens it to the annual two-week bead show in Tucson, Az. “You can really stock up at this show. It’s like bringing the best of the Tucson Gem Show to Cazenovia.

Exercisers driven to extremes in the name of fitness may be doing more harm than good. So says a study of endurance runners, whose bodies researchers analyzed with a mobile MRI unit. They found that running long distances over a sustained period of time led to muscle loss (as well as fat loss). Researchers also noted that the endurance runners suffered from severely impaired immune function. The runners, who covered 2,800 miles in 64 days, lost an average of 7% of the muscle volume in their legs. Some also developed infections that progressed to the point where they had to quit due to impaired immune systems. The message for runners is: Know when to rest.

Most common running injuries are due to overuse, overtraining, or a biomechanical flaw in body structure and motion. Physical therapy is the evaluation and treatment of individuals with disorders of the musculoskeletal system. To schedule an appointment for physical therapy, please call 315-4763176. 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. Some of the runners in the study mentioned above experienced bone fractures, which is evidence that they were engaged in exercise that demanded too much of their bodies.

In history: Week of March 16 125 Years Ago March 18, 1886 - A caucus to nominate village officers was held at Lakeside Hall last Monday evening. It was largely attended and great interest was manifested. Honorable Geo. H. Benjamin was chosen chairman. Mr. Holmes immediately moved the unanimous nomination of L.W. Ledyard, Esq., for President of the village. This motion was carried enthusiastically. Mr. Remington has arrived in Cazenovia with his horses, which are stabled at the Lincklaen House. They are a fine young lot of horses and are being sold rapidly. If you want a good horse cheap it behooves you to get there. 100 Years Ago March 16, 1911 - St. James church is to have new stations. They are imported from Munich through the DePrato Statuary Company of Chicago and New York. The stations are four-feet high, with life-sized statues and will be in place by Easter Sunday. These 14 stations have all been donated by members of the congregation. About now we annually are enthusiastic for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;back to the farmâ&#x20AC;? movement, but after cleaning up the backyard some Saturday afternoon, town life still looks good to us. Few householders can view the future with a cheerful heart, with hardware shops displaying rakes and hoes at every turn. 50 Years Ago March 16, 1961 - Did you know that the Village recently acquired the Lincklaen House street sign? It is now â&#x20AC;&#x153;oursâ&#x20AC;? to paint, protect and care for. As this post is one of the oldest landmarks in the locale I

think that both Mrs. Tobin and the Village Board are to be commended for the common sense approach to the preservation of local history. From the desk of Helen Tobin: Hello everyone, by the time this column reaches you, the lights of the Lincklaen House will be on again and the doors will be open to receive you. We will be glad to be back in the swing of things. However, we had to have this period to take stock of ourselves and what we were doing. A few times recently while chatting on the street corner, I was asked if the hotel were for sale. It occurred to me that since I was living in a public place perhaps I should tell you whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on. First, I felt that to clearly analyze a situation I had to get away from it â&#x20AC;Ś so in January the children and I headed for the sunshine of Florida. On the way we stopped in Williamsburg. I was reminded constantly of Cazenovia. Their restoral was based on history. Could ours be based on traditions? Before the month was out the children were back in school and I concentrated on repairs. Even Edward is in the act. He replaced a molding on the baseboard near the pay phone with five strips of scotch tape. I also attended a conference in Corning sponsored by the American Hotel Association for smaller hotels. Now we must open the doors and we hope you will approve the few changes we have made. First, the bar has been moved to our Merrill Bailey Room (most of us still think of it as the terrace room, but with such talent in our community we feel his name should be better known). The reason for the change (of the bar) is primarily its

This new room also has its own entrance to the street and Seven Stone Steps will always be at your disposal for meetings, parties, anything you wish. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be no charge for the use of the room; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yours for the asking. Next, we have run into a few snags with our lunch hours. How can we get meals to people who are in a hurry when we have no idea of the count? We feel it wise to try a buffet with casseroles, cold cuts and salads. Maybe it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as satisfactory as our old method, but unless we try weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never know. Would you be willing to come and then give us your comments?

After Easter weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking of an orchestra for dancing each Saturday night. Would you like it with dinner, or following dinner? We need your ideas. We thought of painting the hotel (it needs it), but unfortunately that must be left until another year. As the months go on we will try to run the place in a manner in keeping with the traditions of Cazenovia, and we want you to know we have never entertained the thought of giving up.

LAKERS ARE STATE CHAMPIONS By Phil Blackwell Mark 2:22 p.m. on March 12, 2011 as the moment that the Cazenovia ice hockey team reached perfection. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the clock hit zero in the state Division II hockey final. In an instant, helmets, gloves and sticks went in the air, players piled on each other near center ice and a large contingent of Laker fans at Utica Memorial Auditorium roared at top volume, celebrating the Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first-ever state championship. Cazenovia closed out its 26-0 masterpiece with a 6-2 dismantling of Williamsville East Sunday at Utica Memorial Auditorium, leading from start to finish, as it had so many other times in this one-sided rise to the top. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was our goal from day one (of the season) to win a state championship, and it feels good,â&#x20AC;? said senior Sam Lewis, who had two goals in the title game. Head coach Jon Davignon agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This group of kids has been together a long time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they bring a winning style to the ice, and it trickles down to the rest of the team.â&#x20AC;? For its closing statement against Williamsville East, Cazenovia offered a textbook summary of what it had done to most of its previous 25 opponents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; score often, back it up with aggressive defense and never feel satisfied with any kind of lead. Late in the first period, it was still 0-0 when the Flames See Champions, page 10

Lakers win OT classic, reach state final four Girls basketball also having a successful season By Phil Blackwell According to Cazenovia girls basketball head coach Steve Miles, a simple, yet lofty goal has driven the players through this magical season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted to be the best team in Cazenovia history,â&#x20AC;? said head coach Steve Miles. And now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official - the Lakers are on that pedestal. Thanks to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pulsating 62-58 overtime victory over Section IV champion Oneonta in the Class B

regional finals at Liverpool High School, Cazenovia is on its way to its first-ever state final four. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing,â&#x20AC;? said senior forward Ashley Stec. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to keep going and do what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never done before.â&#x20AC;? Stec had much to do with this breakthrough. Silent on the offensive side for much of the Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; run to the Section III Class B title, the Manhattan College-bound senior poured in 23 points, most of them in a first-quarter barrage that appeared to send Ca-

zenovia on its way. By herself, Stec, with 13 points in that opening period, (including a trio of 3-pointers), outscored the Yellowjackets, who managed just nine as a team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team was ready, and we were intense,â&#x20AC;? she said. Yet Oneonta, who beat Cazenovia in this same regional round two years ago, would climb back within four, 32-28, by halftime, pushed there by freshman Mariah Ruff, who had 11 points in the second period. Through a back-and-forth third quarter, the Lakers




doubled the margin to eight, only to see the Yellowjackets get back to 42-38 by the time the final period started. Both defenses took over in the late stages, especially that of Oneontaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, as Cazenovia could not get the ball inside to Stec, Ellen Burr (who finished with 18 points) or Raeanne Clabeaux, settling for jump shots that went off the mark. The Lakers did not get a single field goal in those last eight minutes. But with Colleen Dougherty anchoring another superb Cazenovia defensive effort, the Yellowjackets still trailed, 47-45, until Ruff flashed open on a cut to the basket and hit a layup with 7.1 seconds to tie it, 47-47. Burr got the last shot in regulation, but it got blocked, and the game went to overtime. Miles said that, in his pep talk to the players prior to the OT, that he emphasized the fact that â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all new at this pointâ&#x20AC;?, and that they had to stay composed. Perhaps he also told the Lakers to go back inside and find more high-percentage shots. Indeed, in its first three OT possessions Clabeaux, Burr and Stec all converted on inside baskets. And with the score 53-49, with the Yellowjackets expecting


Ashley Stec, right, creates space as Ellen Burr goes up for a shot during a recent game at Cazenovia High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Buckley Gymnasium. The girls varsity basketball team has a record of 21-1 so far this season. another drive to the basket, Clabeaux (who had five of her 11 points in the extra period) instead drained a 3pointer to make it 56-49. Still, Oneonta wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quit, eating away at the margin until the final minute of OT - where Taylor Malmsheimer put it away. The senior point guard had sprained her ankle earlier in the game, but stayed out there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taylor is a kid you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep off the floor,â&#x20AC;? said Miles. And when she was fouled four times in the last 55 sec-

onds, Malmsheimer, with eight free-throw attempts, made six of them, including the clincher with 9.8 seconds to play. Now the Lakers enter a new world, starting Friday morning at 10 a.m. when it plays Section I champion and state no. 1-ranked Irvington in the state Class B semifinals at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy. The winner advances to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4 p.m. championship game against Hoosic Valley (Section II) or Rochester Aquinas (Section V).

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waste not, want notâ&#x20AC;? is always good advice to a gardener. Take garbage, which originally meant â&#x20AC;&#x153;giblets of a fowl, or waste parts of an animal,â&#x20AC;? now means things we really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want. But even garbage cans have their use. You can grow potatoes in garbage cans or even heavy duty plastic trash bags. To use an old garbage can, poke some holes in the bottom for drainage. Any potted, or container grown plant, tends to dry out faster than plants in the ground so be careful and keep your potatoes well watered, but not soggy. Potatoes need full sun and light, loose, well-drained slightly acidic soil with a pH of 5.8 to 6.5. You will use small â&#x20AC;&#x153;seed potatoesâ&#x20AC;? to plant your crop. About a week or two before planting, set your seed potatoes out in direct light in a warm area, around 60 to 70 degrees. This will cause the seed potatoes to begin sprouting. A day or two before planting, use a sharp, clean knife to cut any larger

out or you can end up with misshaped potatoes. Once your potato plants start to grow, add more soil or compost around the plant stems. Do not cover the leaves. Keep adding compost or soil each time your plants grow until you fill up the entire garbage can by the end of the season. After your potatoes bloom, wait for the flowers to fade and begin to form small tomato-like fruits or seed capsules. You can now harvest a few â&#x20AC;&#x153;new potatoesâ&#x20AC;? by carefully reaching into the soft soil and taking some tubers, being careful to re-cover the roots. For storage potatoes, wait until the plants have died back and turned brown. Simply turn the garbage can over and pour out your potatoes. Add the used soil to a part of the garden where you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plant any potatoes relatives (tomato, eggplant or peppers) for several years. This will stop soil-borne diseases from spreading. Then you really would end up with garbage.

allowed the temporary storage of vehicles while their owners were responding to calls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the opportunity to acquire the property makes a lot of sense,â&#x20AC;? Deputy Mayor Kurt Wheeler said. The amount of $91,750 was a welcome compromise after several higher asking prices were proposed over the past four months. Since the introduction of the proposal in November, there had been a variety of suggested asking prices, and mixed sentiments between fire department volunteers, village board members, and tax-paying residents. When senior members of the fire department first proposed the property purchase, the asking price was $110,000. Many residents and local real estate professionals asked the board to proceed with caution, as they believed the asking price was slightly inflated and believed further due diligence would yield lower numbers. During the month of January, the property on Farnham Street was appraised by two real estate agents. One assessment yielded a recommended market value of $100,000, while the other produced a suggested selling price of $120,000. The latest assessment, completed in February, was done by real estate professional Robert J. Riedel. After reviewing the land and structure at 6 Farnham St., Riedel estimated that the property was worth $85,000 in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market. He also offered $93,000 as a price, should the buyer wish to turn the package into an income property. Upon reaching a final decision, members of the fire department and village trustees were both sure to thank the property owner, Susan Baldwin, for her patience and understanding. Knowing that selling the property to another individual would deter the firehouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for expansion, Baldwin was supportive of the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acquisition. As the village acquires the parcel of land, the Cazenovia Fire Department will look to utilize the property for a multitude of different uses. While increased parking is a goal, Deputy Chief Gil Hodges said that the company may use the building for training exercises, while it is still structurally sound. In the future, the land on Farnham Street could possibly provide space for a member bunkhouse, or expansion of the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garage.

In addition to new construction, Merle Builders also has extensive experience in remodeling and designing aesthetic additions to existing homes. Despite a slow building climate due to the economy, Scott thinks people’s confidence in the economy will rise this spring and 2011 will prove fruitful. “There seems to be a lot of people who have been ‘on the fence’ waiting for the economy to recoup and are now ready to build this year,” Scott said. He added that his decades of experience combined with the quality of his work give his clients the advantage. “Quality and longevity position me to compete with my fellow homebuilders and definitely with the ‘one-truck operators,’ whose numbers have multiplied during the recession,” he said. One-man operation Previously partnered with his brother, Ron, Scott is now the sole operator of

Scott Merle, owner of Merle Builders. Merle Builders, a business that the brothers’ father, Harold T. Merle began in 1962 with “$1,000 in his pocket.” In 2009 and 2010, Merle Builders saw a decrease in business due to the economy, which resulted in a company downsize. In addition to eliminating several employees, the brothers decided that only one of them was needed to keep the company going. “We needed to be leaner and more competitive in the marketplace,” Scott said. “Ron was just about at full retirement age and I am 13 years younger. So, naturally, we decided that I would continue the ‘Merle Legacy.’” That legacy includes the following ongoing projects: a 2,700-square-foot model home in Timber Banks located on the golf course; two- and three-bedroom Townhomes in Clay

starting at $132,900; Patio homes in Radisson beginning in late spring, early summer; custom one- to two-acre lots remaining in Melia Park off Route 370; and custom lots at Whisper Ridge in Radisson. With so many projects in the works, Scott is embracing the future of the company as it approaches its 50th year in business. “I will do my best to insure the legacy passed down to me and take Merle Builders into the next new and technologically exciting decade,” he said. Merle Builders, Inc. is located at 2 Canton St. in Baldwinsville. The office is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; potential and existing clients can call the office at 635-6917 or contact Scott at 952-6498. Merle Builders will also be at the Home and Garden Show, March 17-20 at the State Fairgrounds.

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

Seneca Federal Vice President – Lending, Tammy Purcell, left, and Assistant Vice President – Lending, Rebecca Smith. also respond quickly to pre-qualification requests and pride ourselves as local underwriters with timely commitments.” Seneca Federal has never used credit scores as a basis for loan approval but rather base loan commitment on actual consumer credit history. This ‘traditional’ and time-tested practice has worked well for the Association, which has a foreclosure rate near zero percent. “A low foreclosure rate sometimes leads people to ask me if we are risky enough with such a low default rate,” said the president, adding that the low default rate has more to do with the rapport they have made with their customers during the underwriting process and less to do with not taking risk. “Our loans are often tailor-made to our customer’s specific needs and we build a rapport with them from the beginning, indicating that we are on the ‘same side’. We are ver y thankful when a customer is willing to approach us when they are having difficulty and before the loan is in default and we are able to work with finding a solution to get them through a rough time such as a job loss,” added Purcell. At Seneca Federal you always have the ability to speak directly with experienced loan underwriters who assist you in your mortgage loan application process from start to finish, including servicing throughout the loan. The lending team is carrying on with the philosophy of individualized lending that community banks thrive on. “We are imbedded in our communities and want to offer competitive mortgage, consumer and commercial loan rates for the benefit of our customers,”

said Purcell. “We aren’t a ‘cookie cutter’ secondary mortgage market lender. We understand the needs of our communities and want to provide a competitive product.” The mor tgage ser vicing is always retained by us so our customers are assured they will work with us for the life of the loan. One example of a loan that is often tailor-made to a customer’s needs is the construction to permanent financing mortgage loan with one loan closing and a rate that is determined at commitment, before the construction phase. This loan is popular since the rate can’t change when it ‘converts’ to permanent financing later and closing costs are only paid once, upon commitment. The risk of a higher rate later after the house is constructed is removed. Another such tailor-made loan includes a mortgage where a customer is purchasing a house in which projected renovations are included. The purchase and renovation costs are wrapped into one mortgage loan. Other features which add to Seneca’s app eal as a mor tgage lender include no flood certification fees and no underwriting fees. “This culture of personalized service was instilled into us by our predecessors, so that Seneca Federal’s continued success is guaranteed for decades to come,” she said. “We pride ourselves on providing the best possible products with the lowest possible lending rates. As a community bank, it is our job to increase the wealth of our members through low lending rates and high savings rates, given the state of the economy at any given time,” according to Russo.

budget,” she said. Meharg is excited to bring her own jewelry designs and innovative classes to this creative college town. She creates jewelry with, and teaches classes on, medium called “metal clay”. Finely powdered pure silver particles are mixed with water and a starch binder, forming a clay-like material. This “moldable metal” can be worked like any clay; it can be sculpted, carved or used to build hollow forms; after it dries, it can be filed, cut or drilled before firing. It is truly an art jewelry designer’s dream material. Once a piece is made from the clay and air dried (removing the water) it is fired in a kiln, a furnace that reaches well over 1,000 degrees. The binder holding the metal particles burns, and the particles pull together in a process called sintering. The particles fuse, and when the object cools it is solid metal. Meharg has been working with this innovative and “green” material (about 30 to 40 percent of the silver is recovered from processed photographic film) since 2005. Her jewelry designs have received international attention and she has won awards for her creations. She has been featured in several magazines as well as had pieces on display at juried exhibits. She is currently apprenticing with another metal clay artist, THE

Hamilton College names new Chief Academic Officer By Eileen Foote

Communications Assistant, Hamilton College

Professor Patrick D. Reynolds

Patrick D. Reynolds, professor of biology at Hamilton College, has been appointed Dean of Faculty at the college, effective July 1, 2011. He is currently serving in that capacity on an interim basis. Reynolds’ appointment follows an extensive national search to fill the vacancy created when former Dean of Faculty Joseph Urgo was named the President of St. Mary’s College of Maryland. “Patrick Reynolds is a highly regarded teacher and scholar who has served ably for the past nine months as interim dean of faculty,” said Hamilton President Joan Hinde Stewart. “He has the respect of his peers and the admiration of his students. I am delighted he has agreed to become Hamilton’s next chief academic officer.” In his new position, Reynolds will lead the 184-member faculty and oversee the college’s academic affairs, including

Hamilton’s programs in Beijing, Madrid, Paris, Washington, D.C., and New York City. He also will have oversight responsibility for numerous academic offices and centers, including Burke Library, the Registrar’s Office, the Physical Education Department and Athletics, Emerson Gallery, the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center, Opportunity Programs, the Nesbitt-Johnston Writing Center, the Oral Communications Center and the Quantitative Literacy Center. A native of New York, but raised in Ireland where his family still lives, Reynolds is the first in his family to obtain a college education. He received his bachelor’s degree in 1983 with first class honors in zoology from University College Galway, part of the National University of Ireland, and earned his Ph.D. in biology from the University of Victoria in British Columbia in 1991. Hired by Hamilton as an assistant professor in 1992, he was promoted to associate professor in 1998, professor in 2005 and became chair of the biology department in 2006.

Caz Police to participate in national ‘take-back’

Seatbelt enforcement to be increased

On April 30 the Drug Enforcement Administration will launch their second annual “National Prescription Drug Take-Back,” that provides a safe way for Americans to dispose of the unwanted prescription drugs. The Village of Cazenovia Police Department is participating in this program by providing two drop off locations for medications. Cazenovia residents will be able to safely dispose of prescription drugs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday April 30 at Kinney Drugs located at 41 Albany St., and Rite Aid located at 95 Nelson St. Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter substances may be collected. This program is anonymous, no requests for identification will be made. Those participating may dispose of medication in its original container, or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. If an original container is submitted, the individual is encouraged to remove any identifying information from the prescription label. All solid dosage pharmaceutical products and liquids in consumer containers

During the month of March, Madison County Sheriff ’s deputies, in cooperation with the County Traffic Safety Coordinator, will be aggressively enforcing New York State’s Seatbelt Law on all roadways. State law requires that all passengers in the front seat of a motor vehicle must wear a seat belt. All children under the age of 16 must wear a seatbelt while in the back seat. Children from birth to age eight are required to ride in an appropriate child restraint system, and for those children riding in recreation vehicles, motor homes and campers if they are equipped with seat belts. If found unbuckled, drivers and front seat passengers over the age of 16 could face fines of up to $50. Drivers will also face fines of up to $100 for each passenger under the age of 16 who is not properly

restrained in their vehicles and will also receive three violation points on his or her driving record. “Regardless of age and seating position in a vehicle, all passengers should use safety belts,” said Madison County Sheriff, Allen Riley. “New York State’s seatbelt law has increased seat belt and child safety seat use. It has been responsible for saving hundreds of lives and reducing the severity of injuries.” All residents are reminded to buckle up, and take advantage of the best available protection in the event of a crash. “Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up ‘Click It or Ticket’ activities that will take place around the clock. There will be zero tolerance. No excuses and no exceptions,” Riley said.

Singer-songwriters to perform March 26 at Odeon By Mona Dunn Local music lovers won’t have to wait until April to see a show at the Nelson Odeon; an exciting double-bill has recently been announced. Two recognized singersongwriters, Jill Andrews and Amy Speace, will perform at 8 p.m. on March 26. Jill Andrews is known for her remarkable voice. It is warm, rich and touched with a soft Southern twang, as likely to swing down into its earthy lower register as arch upwards into a hopeful trill; it’s steady and sure, but flecked with a certain weary sadness that stops you dead and draws you near. It’s beautiful. Jill’s been singing her whole life, as a little girl, as a camp counselor plucking out three chords on an acoustic guitar, as one-half of The Everybodyfields—and, since 2009, as an increasingly formidable singer/songwriter making her way on her own. Metromix St. Louis states loud and clear: “Jill Andrews is an artist I have been talking and talking about for about a couple of years now. I bring her name up just about to everyone who will listen. To me, she is not only a special talent, but one whose immediate presence is tantamount to stardom in certain singer-songwriter circles. Her uncanny ability to turn a simple folk song into something heavenly never ceases to amaze me; I know that’s high praise, but if you ask me, she’s got it all—the voice, the words, the melodies, the charm of something that instantly stands out and shines a little brighter than everything else in the room. I’m always floored.” Born in Baltimore and raised in smalltown Pennsylvania, Amy Speace initially had her sights set on acareer as a playwright/actor, graduating from Amherst College and touring with the prestigious National Shakespeare Company. After moving to New York, she had roles in various off-Broadway productions and independent films, ran her own theater company, and taught Shakespeare in the New York City school system. After teaching herself to play guitar, she began setting her poetry to music, and quickly found singing and songwriting to be the most creatively fulfilling things she’d ever done. She soon began performing as half of the female duo Edith O. After catching a performance at the SXSW music industry festival, Judy Collins’ manager brought Speace to the attention of Collins, who signed her to her Wildflower label.

Amy Speace Speace’s debut for the label, “Songs For Bright Street,” received praise from critics, including those in Europe, which has enabled her to build a strong touring base there. Her song “Weight of the World” was ranked #4 on WFUV’s Top 10 Folk Songs of the Decade. Both artists will be backed by a great band, so be sure to catch this not-to-miss show to ring in spring. Tickets can be purchased for $20 online at nelsonodeon., or at Freedom of Espresso in Syracuse and Fayetteville.

Now that we’ve gotten past February, bridge lessons have resumed on Tuesday mornings at the Cazenovia Public Library. Jane Fuller and Barbara Roller team up to teach beginners at 9:30 a.m., followed by a general and intermediate class from 10 a.m. until noon. Barbara showed she knows her stuff by teaming with husband, Sam, to win the overall title and North/South honors at the afternoon duplicate game. The couple won by a wide margin and moved into first place for the year. It’s only March, though, and many other teams are close behind. Jim Schiffhauer & Dick Shaw had the top East/West score.

Workshop participants will first join Rowe and Hutson in interactive activities to absorb the A-A-B lyric format and the 12-measure blues form. By the end of the threesession workshop, members will have composed their own blues, set them to music, and prepared them for a public performance at the final session. Participants will have the option of performing their songs themselves with tailored accompaniment or employing Rowe or Hutson as interpreters of their songs. A recording will be made of the resulting blues collection. No previous musical experience is required, and these workshops are open to tenth-grade students through adults with teens and parents especially welcome. Maximum class size is 15 with pre-registration required. Please call the library at 655-9322 by March 18 to reserve a spot. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blues Frees the Spiritâ&#x20AC;? workshop is made possible through the Art Creating Community Decentralization Regrant Program which receives funds from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Through the help of NYSCA, the Stanley has been funding art and cultural programs in our tri-county area since 1977.



During the event, the center was formally named the Sheila Johnson Design Center after noted philanthropist and entrepreneur, Sheila C. Johnson, a benefactor and longtime supporter of the college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This naming recognizes Sheila Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generosity and positive impact on Morrisville and the lives of so many students,â&#x20AC;? SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This center is the approximation of a dream and the execution of strategies that will transform this region and state.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheilaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generosity has meant so much to our students over the years,â&#x20AC;? said Anne Englot, professor of architectural studies and design and chair of the Engineering Technologies Department. A plaque will be hung in the new center acknowledging Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for this honor. It is a true privilege,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m astounded by the building and so proud to be associated with Morrisville State College.â&#x20AC;? During the event, guests had a chance to tour the new facility and meet the architectural and construction teams. They also had the opportunity to view student projects and an exhibition detailing the unique history behind a vision that transformed a historic barn once filled with hay, calves and a milking parlor into a 25,000 square-foot center, now filled with studios, classrooms, offices, and soaring galleries for students in the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-year architectural studies and design program. The space will be shared with a new bachelor of

From page 6 architecture degree thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awaiting approval and an interior design program planned for the future. Work began on the center four years ago with removal of the barn, which at one time was located at the center of campus. Inside, a stair and elevator core within a broken cylinder, allude to feed silos of the former building, and some interior finishes from the barnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original siding remain. The silhouette of the former dairy barn is still visible and is now framed in steel and glass to capture ideal northern light. Designed by internationally acclaimed architects, Perkins Eastman, and built by Hueber-Breuer Construction Co., Inc., the commanding building welcomes visitors with a dramatic vaulted and double-height entrance atrium and a gallery that displays studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work. Alluring elements include dramatic arches, interlocking spaces and a double-height studio, a mezzanine-level studio suspended above the second floor, and four studios that envelop students in vast space and light. Green Features Additionally appealing, the building is sustainable. Green features have been incorporated throughout, down to the water-based finish on the wood. The building is awaiting Leadership in Energy and the Environmental Design gold certification, which means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an environmentally sustainable center from the materials from which it is made, and materials, methods used to construct it and the systems

that heat and cool it. Sustainable elements include low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emitting interior paints and finishes, and Energy Star 50-year certified architectural shingles on the roof. Less visible cutting-edge sustainable elements incorporated in its design are geothermal heat pump wells for heating and cooling, energy efficient user-controlled lighting, indoor air quality monitoring, insulated low E-glass with argon filling at the north end to increase insulation, and low energy consumption and energyefficient Heating Ventilation and AirConditioning controls. The centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also creating a lot of buzz in class, providing faculty with plenty of teaching opportunities. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re illustrating sustainable design concepts like day lighting and interlocking space, and technology including the geothermal heat pump wells and energy-efficient HVAC controls, and materials such as pouredin-place concrete walls with fly ash content and recycled steel, in their lessons. Morrisville State Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s architecture program is opening a lot of other doors for students. In addition to academics, students travel to significant architecture sites, volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, interact with national speakers who come to lecture and conduct workshops and exhibit their work at local art venues, including the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park in Cazenovia, N.Y.

From page 20 Smithsonian Marine Stations in Caribo Cay, Belize, and Link Port, Fla., and at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., and the Natural History Museum in London. Individually or as part of a team, Reynolds has received grants from the National Science Foundation and has been funded through grants to Hamilton College from the Hewlett Foundation and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. His scholarship has appeared in Advances in Marine Biology, Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society and Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, and in several edited collections, including volumes from University of California Press, Smithsonian Institution Press and Oxford University Press. Reynolds was an editor for 12 years, and editorin-chief from 2004-2009, of Invertebrate Biology, an international journal of the American Microscopical Society; he was recently named president-elect of that organization. In addition to serving on a number

of panels for the National Science Foundation, he has held leadership positions within the Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology. Reynolds has been elected by his peers to nearly every major faculty committee at Hamilton, including the Committee on Appointments, Academic Council and the Committee on Academic Policy. In addition, he was secretary of the faculty in 1994-95 and served on the Honor Court in 1993-94. As acting and interim dean of faculty, he has held â&#x20AC;&#x153;ex officioâ&#x20AC;? membership on numerous college governance committees, including those pertaining to admission and financial aid, budget and finance, and planning. Associate Professor of Philosophy Katheryn Doran, also a member of the Search Committee, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deep knowledge of and passion for the college, combined with an international reputation as a scholar, make him a superb person to serve as Hamiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dean of faculty.â&#x20AC;? Reynolds will become dean in the midst of the Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign to raise $117 million for new arts

facilities and to add to the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endowment for student scholarships. In addition, several current faculty initiatives seek to strengthen the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic program, which include envisioning the library of the future, developing the role of academic advising and more clearly defining the goals of a Hamilton education. An accomplished traditional Irish fiddler, Reynolds is married to Damhnait McHugh, professor of biology at Colgate University and president of the Kirkland Art Center. They are the parents of NĂłra. Hamilton is an academically rigorous community whose students often form deep and enduring friendships with their professors. The college expects each of its students to think, write and speak with clarity, understanding and precision, so that graduates possess the intellectual vitality and confidence to evaluate arguments and to defend their own positions. As a result, Hamilton alumni are prepared to make good choices and to accept the responsibilities for citizenship in a democratic world.

the right side glanced off John Greacenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stick past Hafner, tying it 1-1. Later in the period, an all-out Laker push included a series of shots before Gara, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading goal-scorer, drew the defense toward him, then found an open Sam Lewis, who put home the goahead tally. Up 2-1 going to the final period, the Lakers got away with more work from Gara, who pounded home a rebound to increase the margin to two. Less than two minutes later, Sean Cannizzaro made a long charge, went behind the net, then fed a well-timed pass to Connor Cannizzaro, who converted to make it 4-1, putting the game out of reach. A day later, Cazenovia completed its perfect run to the top â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a fact that had turned Davignonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modest beard shaggy. Ever the superstitious type, the coach had stopped shaving early in the season and vowed to do so only if the Lakers lost. It never did. And so that larger beard got a good dose of whipped cream from the happy Lakers in the locker room as it did everything right to join the field hockey team from the fall as a second Cazenovia state champion in the 2010-11 school year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a sense we would be good,â&#x20AC;? said Davignon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect perfection. Still, we can walk away from this season and say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the best. No one beat us.â&#x20AC;?


while Connor Cannizzaro got the final tally with 4:04 to play. Sean Cannizzaro said his team had the â&#x20AC;&#x153;best three defenders in the stateâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C;himself, plus Nardella and Connor Cannizzaro. As proof, Sean shared tournament MVP honors with Lewis and joined Nardella, Powell, Lewis and Gara on the AllTournament team. To reach the final, the Lakers rallied for the second game in a row, pushing its way past Section II champion Queensbury 4-2 in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s semifinal round. Trailing after the first period, the Lakers used its speed, skill and depth to wear the Spartans down, eventually taking 35 shots to Queensburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13, and stayed patient before zooming in front during the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s middle stages. The first period alone featured 14 Cazenovia shots and plenty of other scoring chances. Yet Queensbur y goaltender Dylan Hafner stopped all of them, keeping the Lakers off the board. Meanwhile, a Sean Cannizzaro turnover allowed a chance for the Spartans that Kevin Valenti converted 6:58 into the game, and the Lakers trailed, 1-0, the same modest deficit it faced against Salmon River in the state quarterfinals a week earlier. Now, as then, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faze the Lakers one bit. Five minutes into the second period, Cazenovia was in the midst of yet another push when Lucas Cataniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shot from

committed a penalty. Right away, the Lakers capitalized as, at the 10:56 mark, Connor Cannizzaro scored, with Lewis and Brian Gara getting the assists. Even bigger was what took place less than two minutes later, on an East power play. Lewis stole the puck, drove up the ice alone, and flushed a shot past Flames goaltender Tucker Weppener to make it 2-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting two in the first period really set us on our way,â&#x20AC;? said senior defenseman Sean Cannizzaro. Another key sequence unfolded early in the second period. East, who had just two shots in the opening period, attacked hard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and in a span of seconds, Mason Powell made two point-blank saves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mason doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a lot of shots on him, but when he does, he makes the saves,â&#x20AC;? said Davignon. Off the rebound of the second save, senior captain Joe Nardella broke the other way and hit a hard shot into the top left corner of the net. In a flash, what may have been a 2-1 game was now 3-0. Just 2:19 later, Lewis notched his second goal, Sean Cannizzaro earning the assist, and though East cut it to 4-1 before the second period was done, the Lakers were not going to get caught. To be sure, though, the Lakers added two more goals in the third period, Sean Cannizzaro feeding Lucas Catania wide-open in front on one scoring play with 8:43 left

to 2010, he was associate dean of faculty, and served as acting dean in 2009 when President Stewart was on a six-month research sabbatical and Dean Urgo assumed her responsibilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am sincerely honored by the opportunity to serve the college in this role, and particularly to serve the staff and faculty members who deliver on the educational mission of this institution,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hamilton is a national leader in liberal arts education; my ambition is to sustain and strengthen that leadership, especially through our academic support for our students, the co-curricular programming that so enriches our campus life, and the teacher-scholar model of faculty vocation that nourishes and invigorates our curriculum.â&#x20AC;? Reynolds is an expert on marine invertebrate biology, particularly the evolution of molluscs, a group which includes snails, clams, and squid. He has worked with student research assistants on cruises and at marine field stations along both coasts of North America and in Antarctica.
