Community News Residents drill for answers on hydrofracking By Elaine Barnes Concerned citizens had a chance to voice their concerns and get answers on the debate over hydrofracking during a meeting held at 7 p.m. May 2 in the Community Room of the Cazenovia Library. About 30 residents were on hand to listen to information presented by local officials, members of the Cazenovia Advisory Conservation Commission and the Hydrofracking Committee. The committee is a specialized group recently appointed by CACC to investigate this controversial issue and to address measures that will protect the interests of Cazenovia residents. “To me, this is the environmental issue of our time,” said CACC member and head of the Hydrofracking Committee, Mat Webber. Hydraulic fracturing, or “hydrofracking,” is a drilling technique used to enhance the process of recovering natural gas from underground. It is a relatively recent development in the ongoing pursuit of fossil fuels, which has raised controversy because of possible health and environmental risks. Concerns exist around the high-volume, horizontal hydrofracking, which can encompass widespread underground areas as large as a mile or mile-and-a half. The horizontal hydrofracking is


About 30 area residents attended the Hydrofracking Committee meeting on May 2. At the discussion, possible advantages and disadvantages of hydraulic fracturing within Cazenovia were examined. seen as a greater threat than “vertical hydrofracking” because it involves more widespread areas, uses greater volumes of water, produces more waste and more traffic in the areas, according to environmental experts. There is currently no horizontal hydrofracking permitted in New York State, under a moratorium which remains in effect until this summer, allowing the DEC an opportunity to complete a summary of its findings on health and environmental concerns surrounding the issue. Introduction of hydro-fracking to this area is inevitable, according to town officials present at the meeting.

Caz Village Board update By Pierce Smith Two public hearings preceded the regularly scheduled village of Cazenovia Board meeting on May 2. The first hearing offered residents the chance to learn more about the Community Block Development Grant Program. Executive Director of Central New York Regional Planning Board Dave Bottar and Jeanie Gleisner outlined the CBDG, which is a flexible program that provides financial assistance to municipalities looking to address a wide range of community development issues. No immediate actions were taken by the board, as the hearing was

conducted solely to solicit ideas as to how funds could be used. The program’s deadline is May 27. A second public hearing on the CBDG was scheduled for 6:45 p.m. May 23. If the board feels not enough material has been gathered for a competitive grant application, no further actions will taken. The second hearing, dealt with the consideration of a local law entitled “A local law to enact the 2011 Zoning Code of the Village of Cazenovia.” Deputy Mayor Kurt Wheeler and Village Trustees addressed community concerns with revisions to the code. No further actions were taken in this hearing as well, as

yellow and black scheme, stands at the end of the Lewis Loyster Memorial Lodge. The pole has been in storage since 2003 when the building renovation began, and many “Old Scouts” of the troop missed it. The pole was designed and carved from a utility pole in the 1960s by then Scoutmaster Walter Dancks, a talented artist, and his sons. The totems on the pole represent the Eagle, Wolf, Owl, and Heron Patrols, the Boys Scouts of America as well as the Order of the Arrow. This last January, under the guidance of Assistant Scout Master Bob Eberst, the scouts photographed and mapped the color patterns in order to duplicate the original painting. They then scraped, filled, sanded and primed the pole before two weeks of careful painting. Committee member Jim Shaw carved a new beak and wing for the Eagle. Two coats of clear sealer with ultra violet protection were applied to protect the finished project. The base was donated by Brian Hastings, a parent of a current member.

Opinion Editorial

All fracked up

It seems to be the issue that won’t go away. It’s become one of those issues you politely avoid with friends to forestall any unpleasantness. Hydraulic fracturing, or “hydrofracking” as it’s known more exactly, is the process of extracting natural gas from underground shale formations by injecting fluid which displaces the gas forcing it to the surface. There. We’ve exhausted our scientific base. But Mat Webber seems to know more. “To me, this is the environmental issue of our time,” he said recently. Webber is on the hydrofracking committee of the Cazenovia Advisory Conservation Commission. The group looks into issues and measures that will protect the interest of Cazenovia residents. One could quibble about Webber’s statement in the face of biological warfare, global terrorism or even the economy. But he’s correct as far as Cazenovia is concerned. It’s unknown just how much natural gas is sandwiched in area shale, but unlocking it could forever change Cazenovia. It might, on the negative side, poison the lake. On the positive side, Cazenovia could become a boom town with supporting business feeding from the gas boom. Neither Webber nor anyone else knows what that future will bring. There is a great need for the new jobs in Central New York gas drilling would bring. Protecting the lake and our water sources is a greater responsibility. The state Department of Environmental Conservation is promising to come up with regulations to make gas drilling safer but that mandate has become a politically charged debate. How the state will finally act or if the DEC will act at all is an ongoing battle. But in Cazenovia, in the civilized fashion we’ve come to expect, people like Webber are drilling down looking for facts and exploring the ramifications. That lays open the promise that Cazenovians will solve the hydrofracking challenge for Cazenovians. It’s good thing. We should be grateful for those who are trying to broaden community understanding without polarizing the process. Keep up the good work.

Letters Historic resources survey completed, next steps being examined

To the editor: Late last year, as directed by the Comprehensive Plan, the Cazenovia Town Board launched a project team to identify and inventory the town’s historic and architectural resources. The purpose was to determine if there was a sufficient inventory that would warrant potential recognition and/or protection. A survey of over 1700 homes, buildings, sites, and objects was completed in February. From this, properties were identified as having unique historical and/or architectural value, and indeed, the town has a rich and diverse population of such resources. The town board recently authorized the project team to continue to the next phase of the project; to identify and evaluate alternatives available to the town and its residents to recognize, protect, and/or enhance its historic resources. Currently, none of the town’s historic and architectural resources – including those on the National or State Registers of Historic Properties – have any protection from demolition or insensitive alteration. We know that wishful thinking and good intentions are not enough; so what is the best way to proceed? At 7 p.m. on Thursday May 19

in the Cazenovia Public Library, the New York State Historic Preservation Office will present alternative programs available to the community. A recap of the Historic and Architectural Resources Inventory also will be presented. Please join us to begin dialogue in the community on an issue important to the future of Cazenovia and Cazenovia’s character.

Why we must remember to celebrate nursing homes

To the editor: Living life to its fullest potential isn’t always easy to do, especially as we grow older. But aging doesn’t mean giving up our individuality or our ability to enjoy life – both of which nursing homes are celebrating this week. May 8 through 14 marks National Nursing Home Week in America - a chance to honor those who rely on these facilities for the care they need, as well as those who provide that care day in and day out. This year’s theme, “Fulfilling the Promise,” encourages nursing homes to continue to focus on “person-centered” care so each resident can live life to the fullest. Throughout the week, nursing homes in communities

across the country will host a wide variety of activities that celebrate this promise with residents, staff and volunteers. It is also a time to recognize the vital role nursing homes play in our nation’s health care system. Not only a place for the frail elderly who cannot care for themselves, nursing homes have become a cost-effective setting for patients with short term rehabilitative and post-acute care needs. Medicare patients are now routinely turning towards nursing facilities following a stay in a hospital due to a broken hip or a weakened heart. More than one-third of these patients return home within 100 days. Today’s nursing home also focuses on holistic care so that residents can make choices about their care and daily routine while accessing a wide variety of activities to help increase their opportunities and live meaningful lives. Looking forward, millions of Baby Boomers will require the services nursing homes provide, making our commitment that Americans are able to live out their later years in dignity all the more important. “Fulfilling the Promise” is just one step in continuing our commitment to long term and post-acute care for years to come. RICHARD J. HERRICK PRESIDENT, CEO, NYS HEALTH FACILITIES ASSOCIATION

American spirit, now from abroad I know a fellow from Lebanon who is more American than most Americans. In 1977, when I was 14, I rode my bike, played ball with my friends and enjoyed a safe and happy American existence. During that same year at the same age, the Lebanese fellow I now know was dragging dead bodies into the street and setting them on fire. As civil war raged in his country, as Beirut was bombed every night, many dead bodies lay in the streets. The stench was so great, he and his neighbors dragged the bodies into a pile and burned them. He was a Catholic with five siblings and two parents. For three years, his family lived in a bombedout apartment. They were finally forced to flee. At the airport, they were stripped of their money and belongings. They settled in Cyprus for a few years, working odd jobs to make money. Eventually, his family got permission to come to America and settled in Washington, D.C. Though his father had had two successful retail businesses before the war, the family had to start at the bottom in America.

The fellow and his younger siblings had no time to finish high school or Tom Purcell think about college. He took a job in a shop. His siblings worked in a restaurant. They gave all their earnings to their father. After three years, their father had saved $20,000, enough for the family to start a business. The family saw an opportunity to open a bakery that specialized in Middle Eastern fare. For seven grueling years, the fellow and his siblings worked roundthe-clock, sleeping on flour sacks and putting all profits back into the business.

In 1993, the business began to see a profit and the family finally began to enjoy the fruits of its labor. But then the business lost two big accounts in the same year. The family hunkered down again and worked round-the-clock to save the business. Today, some 30 years after the family fled war-torn Lebanon, the business is solid and the family is prospering. The business employs nearly 100 people, many of them earning good salaries. The story of this fellow from Lebanon has got me thinking. As a boy I was taught that freedom, opportunity and hard work, not government largess, were the keys

to a better life in America. I believed that fierce individualism and entrepreneurial drive were the primary reasons for my countr y’s incredible growth and success. Yet, in 2011, so many native-born Americans no longer see it that way. USA Today reports that more than 18 percent of the income Americans enjoy is coming not from labor but from government programs; Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, unemployment benefits, etc. While some of that spending surely benefits the needy, or retired people who paid into Social Security, some of it clearly does See Americans, page 20

For many girls, prom night is the highlight of their high school career (aside from graduation, of course). The search for the prefect dress can turn into a year-long quest for the perfect color and cut. While this can be the most memorable aspect for young women, their parents often remember the price tag. The Key, a ministry of St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church, made the hunt for the perfect dress easier and more economical for Cazenovia High School junior and senior girls this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a large assortment of dresses around March and April.

Complementary Health Services naturally ‘pinpoints’ illness By Pierce Smith While medical practices like acupuncture and yoga are often regarded at “new age” or “alternative,” their healing properties have been utilized for thousands of years by an array of different cultures. Complementary Health Services of Cazenovia offers patients a wide variety of treatments, including osteopathic manipulative therapy, facial rejuvenation, Reiki, restorative yoga and acupressure, as well as acupuncture. Started in 2000 by Dr. Scott Treatman, he and his wife, Dr. Linda Lemay, comprise Complementary Health Services and regularly employ natural medical approaches, without the use of prescription drugs or surgery. “One of the most gratifying things, for me, is when people come in distressed and leave feeling relaxed and happy. It’s nice to spend time with the patients, fully evaluate their needs and give them the proper treatment,” said Lemay. “I had my reservations when Scott began practicing acupuncture; but when I had Achilles tendonitis, he treated me once and it worked. After that I was a believer.” Usually, medical patients are rarely excited


to hear they will have to be stuck with a needle when visiting their doctors. However, visitors to Treatman and Lemay’s offices often request acupuncture treatments to help them attain a relaxed, rejuvenated state of mind. The practice of inserting needles into certain points on the human body dates back to the earliest records of human civilization. During the Han Dynasty in second century BCE, metal replaced sharpened stones and bone needles, which were previously used to alleviate common ailments. “Chinese theory teaches that Chi, or energy, flows through meridians in the human body. When flow is blocked, issues like disease, pain, tumors and other ailments begin to develop. Needles unblock the flow and help your body heal itself,” Lemay said. “In Western medicine, it’s been shown through CAT-scans that different areas of the brain are activated when acupuncture is administered, releasing endorphins; the body’s natural painkiller.” PIERCE SMITH Lemay strongly advocates the power of acuDr. Lemay gently inserts needles into acupuncture patient Nancy puncture, treating a number of regular patients Novak on April 29 in the Complementary Health Services Pompey as well as her own dogs, on occasion.

CRIS celebrates Older American’s Month By Jean Shirley The month of May is “Older American’s Month” which celebrates the contributions of older Americans across the country. This year, the theme adopted for “Older American’s Month” is “Connecting the Community”. A new local organization, Community Resources of Independent Seniors, is all about connecting the community, as well as showing appreciation and support for seniors as they strengthen and enrich the community. Many of us have friends or family members who have had to move away from our community, leaving their life-long homes because of aging

issues. All across the country, communities are seeking ways to provide services that meet the needs of their ever increasing senior populations. To address this growing need in our community and soften some of the challenges of aging, a group of your friends and neighbors joined together to form CRIS. CRIS began in 2009 as a grass-roots initiative in response to local surveys and workshops revealing the need for more supportive services for seniors in the Cazenovia area. With the assistance and guidance of Cazenovia Area Seniors Association and the Greater Cazenovia Area Chamber of Commerce, CRIS has evolved to become a separate, not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation.

CRIS’s mission is to create and coordinate services to meet the needs of our community’s seniors, making it possible for quality, independent living in their own homes and in our community. This year, after countless hours of dedicated hard work from volunteers, we successfully launched our first program, Cazenovia Area Transportation. CRIS-CAT is a free, volunteer driver program providing transportation to residents 55 and over in the Cazenovia, Nelson and Fenner areas who are independent but unable to drive themselves around town. CRISCAT currently has over 30 screened drivers who have provided almost 200 rides to seniors for medical appointSee CRIS, page 20

Caz lacrosse rallies, stuns LaFayette in OT It did not even take a half hour – but in that brief amount of time, the Cazenovia boys lacrosse team staged one of the most memorable comebacks in the program’s history. Down by three goals midway through the fourth quarter of last Wednesday’s resumption of the weather-halted April 26 game against LaFayette at the Sean Googin Memorial Sports Complex, the Lakers somehow made up the deficit and beat the Lancers 15-14 in overtime as Matt Donovan’s goal decided it. Eight days earlier, they had started the game at Colgate University’s Tyler Field. Dogged by a porous defense and LaFayette’s consstent ability to finish off scoring chances, Cazenovia , no. 2 in the state rankings at the time, were in trouble. But with 4:08 to play in regulation and the Lakers down 14-11 (despite John Greacen’s five goals and Joe Nardella’s two goals and two assists), the game was halted when the rain and lightning got too close. Given a reprieve, Cazenovia was glad that, when the game started again, it would at least be back at their home fields on

Fenner Street, more familiar ground. Yet when play started, for more than two minutes the Lakers (now fallen to no. 8 in the state rankings, with LaFayette at no. 7) could do nothing as the Lancers appeared ready to put away its most important win of the season. Then, with 1:36 left, Donovan scored to cut it to 14-12. The Lakers won the ensuing faceoff, and Connor Cannizzaro charged down and put it in the net, shrinking Cazenovia’s margin to one. Again, the Lakers got the draw. Again, it attacked, and with 48 seconds left in regulation Cannizzaro flashed open again and beat LaFayette goalie Noah Walburger to tie it, 14-14. It appeared that LaFayette recovered from the shock when it won the overtime ground ball and attacked. Each time, though, the Lakers made stops, and Cazenovia got possession. At the 2:01 mark of the extra period, Donovan flung a shot past Walburger to win it. This big game sets up a bigger one Tuesday at Fenner, where Cazenovia would get its second shot at state no. 1-ranked Skaneateles, a team it lost to 10-8 back on April 8.


Junior midfielder Mason Powell prepares to make a pass to teammate Connor Cannizzaro, who is posted up next to the crease. Cannizzaro, the leading team scorer was integral in recent victories over LaFayette, Onondaga and Tully. Since the interruption of the LaFayette game, the Lakers had not played for a week, yet still were fuming when it returned last Tuesday and took apart Onondaga 19-2. A 4-1 first-quarter lead on the Tigers did not satisfy Cazenovia in any way, for it proceeded to go on a 7-0 blitz through

the second period and kept on adding to the margin long after the outcome was settled. At the top, the Lakers were well-balanced. Mason Powell had five goals and one assist, while Connor Cannizzaro managed four goals and two assists and Sean Cannizzaro chimed in with three goals and three assists. Brad Nardella also managed a threegoal hat trick, adding an assist as Joe Nardella and Matt Donovan both earned a goal and two assists. Chris Giardina and Oliver Gates each had one goal and one assist. John Greacen and Alan Baldwin also found their way to the assist column. With Skaneateles looming and the LaFayette comeback behind them, the Lakers could have easily forgotten about Saturday’s game at Tully. But there was no looking ahead, as the Lakers blasted the Black Knights 19-5, putting the game away with a 9-0 second-quarter blitz. Greacen put up six goals, while Connor Cannizzaro had five goals and two assists. Donovan got three goals and three assists, Sean Cannizzaro had two goals and three assists and Powell also found the net twice. Alan Baldwin had the other goal.

Caz softball goes 5-0 in league play By Phil Blackwell


By Phil Blackwell

Determined to climb back up the OHSL Liberty division standings, the Cazenovia softball team did so with five wins in a span of six days. Cazenovia began that effort by going to Skaneateles and earning a 10-4 victory in this latest battle of Laker teams. Korena Fenton’s gameopening home run set the tone as Cazenovia scored three times in the first inning. And it did not let up, getting three more runs in the next two frames, plus four runs in the fourth, to build a 10-1 advantage. Skaneateles did score three times in the fifth, but constant rain at Austin Park left the field unplayable, forcing umpires to end the game at that point. (Five innings make a game official). Fenton and Melanie Arehart both had two RBIs, with Lindsay Easterly and Taylor Malmsheimer each scoring twice. Nicole Chiarello only gave up one walk and three hits while striking out seven in her abbreviated outing. After the postponement of Wednesday’s game with Hannibal, the Lakers went to Marcellus on Thursday

and overcame a rough start to take over in the late stages and beat the Mustangs 11-7. A wild second inning saw Cazenovia squander a 5-1 lead and fall behind 6-5. From there, though, Chiarello settled down and, over the next five innings, gave up just one run as the Lakers used two-run rallies in the fourth, sixth and seventh innings to move in front. In particular, Fenton torched the Mustangs for four hits, including a triple and double, scoring four runs and finishing with five RBIs. Malmsheimer also drove in five runs as Emily Mastropaolo had two hits and an RBI and Chiarello managed three hits. Looking for three in a row Friday against Christian Brothers Academy, the Lakers pulled it off, shutting out the Brothers 7-0 to improve its mark to 5-2. JordanSheridanmatched Chiarello’s pitching effort until the bottom of the fourth, when Cazenovia struck for three runs. The Lakers tacked on two more runs in each of the next two innings as Chiarello limited CBA to three hits while recording nine strikeouts. Fenton and Abby Eschen each smacked three hits,

with Eschen doubling, scoring twice and driving in two runs. Mastropaolo hit a home run and also earned two RBIs, with Fenton, Arehart and Stalder driving in single runs. It all culminated Saturday with a doubleheader sweep of Hannibal. In the first of two five-inning games, the Lakers won 12-0 as Meghan Kurucz got her turn to pitch and did not disappoint, keeping the Warriors off the board though she allowed six hits. As if that wasn’t enough, Kurucz also starred at the plate, earning four RBIs. Fenton doubled twice and drive in three runs as Eschen added a pair of RBIs. In the second game, Cazenovia prevailed 15-2. The Lakers were already up 2-0 when it notched six runs in the bottom of the second and kept on pulling further away behind Nicole White’s soild pitching effort. Mastropaolo had two of Cazenovia’s 12 hits, including a double, and earned four RBIs. Fenton scored four times and blasted a two-run home run as she, Eschen and Malmsheimer each had two RBIs and Malmsheimer crossed the plate three times. Belle HoaSee Softball, page 12









Track girls win ESM Invite, rise to 5-0 in league By Kurt Wheeler The Cazenovia girls varsity track and field team added three more wins to their undefeated 2011 campaign, beating league rivals Westhill-Ludden as well as Marcellus and placing first in a 20 team field at the East Syracuse-Minoa Invitational. The Lakers, who prevailed 106 to 35 over Westhill and 107-34 over Marcellus, have scored over 100 points in each of their league-leading five victories this season. Despite intermittent rain and frigid temperatures, the Lady Lakers turned in a series of impressive performances against the Mustangs and Warriors. Paced by speedy Jessica Curry of Westhill, Cazenovia’s Jeanette Cudney ran 11:03.2 in the 3,000 meters, the fastest time in the event for a Laker in 13 years. In similar fashion, Curry and teammate Betsy Black pushed Cazenovia’s Tori Widrick to a personal best time of 5:09.8 in the 1500 while Marcellus distance star Rachel Garn (2:28.2) led Laker Hollie Marcelle to a fast 2:29.9 finish in the 800. Despite peak performances by their top guns, neither Westhill nor Marcellus could match the Lakers’ depth and consistency across all 17 events. Jill Vogl was unmatched in the sprints, winning the 100 (13.2), 200 (27.4) and anchoring the 4x100 meter (54.8) and 4x400 meter (1:00.9 split, 4:22.6 team total) relays to victory. Ellen Burr added four victories of her own, winning the 400 (1:04.1), shot put (29-6.5) and triple jump (30-3.5) along with a 1:06.9 leg on the winning 4x400. Paige Biviano won the 100 meter hurdles in 17.0 and added field event victories in the long jump (15-10) and high jump (4-10). Audrey Bowers was close behind in the long jump with a season-best 15-4 effort and also scored in the 100, 200

Girls lax falls to J-E By Phil Blackwell With a chance to rise to the .500 mark, the Cazenovia girls lacrosse team could not quite pull it off in last Monday’s 11-10 defeat to Jordan-Elbridge at the Seanomplex. Through wet and challenging conditions, the Lakers battled to a 5-4 halftime lead. But it could not hold on as three different Eagles – Ella Thorpe, Carrie-Jo Farrugia and Amanda Wheeler – each had three-goal hat tricks, with Thorpe adding four assists. For its part, Cazenovia saw Gabby Jaquith earn three goals and three assists. Kaitlyn Button also had a three-goal hat trick,

with Jessy Silfer scoring twice. Hillary Bullock had a goal and two assists as Kristina Kleine got one goal and one assist. In fact, Cazenovia took more shots in this game, but J-E goalie Kelsey Richardson (going to Syracuse University next year) was sensational, recording 14 saves, while Laker goalie Lauren Devine managed eight saves. As for alumni news, Sarah Wright just finished her junior season at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va. Wright was second on the team in scoring with 19 goals, plus seven assists as she controlled the draw 31 times to lead the Monarchs, who went 4-11 this spring.


Paige Biviano, left, leads the field in the 100 meter hurdles en route to a first place finish at the May 6 ESM Invitational. Biviano also won three events on May 4 to lead the undefeated Lakers to a double victory over Westhill-Ludden and Marcellus. and 4x100. Piper Gianforte led off the Lakers’ undefeated 4x100 and also kept her own winning streak alive with an 8-0 pole vault victory. Grace Eberle won the discus with a career best mark of 84-10.5 while Hollie Marcelle, Megan

Stanford, Margaret Wolsey and Jeanette Cudney won the 4x800 relay in 10:26.5, their best time of the year. In total, the Lakers won 13 of 17 events including all three relays to dominate the meet. Cazenovia also came away with an unexpected team victory at the ESM Invitational on May 6. Minus several top teammates, the Lakers recorded a series of inspired performances to post 99.33 points to outscore Class AA runner-up Baldwinsville (98.83 points) and 18 other teams for the win. Paige Biviano led the team with a 16.41 second victory in the 100 hurdles, a 16-3.5 second place effort in the long jump and a 5-0 fourth place high jump performance. Ellen Burr continued her hot streak, setting career bests in the shot put (32-8, first place), triple jump (31-2.5, sixth place) and 400 meter (62.3 second 4x400 relay anchor leg split). Jeanette Cudney came within one second of the school record in the 2000 meter steeplechase with a fourth place, 7:52.37 finish and also set a personal best mark in the 800 with a 2:29.95 fifth place finish. Hollie Marcelle ran her fastest 800 of the year (2:26.16, second place) and helped both the 4x400 and 4x800 relays to scoring finishes. Michelle Karker ran a career-best time of 11:50.93 to place fifth in the 3000 while Rachel Grimm added her own personal best of 5:27.13 to capture fifth in the 1500. Christy Tainter had her best discus throw ever (81-0) to claim third, backed up by Grace Eberle who placed seventh with a 77-10 effort. Piper Gianforte took second in the pole vault (8-0) with teammate Michelle McGinnis capturing eighth to cap the scoring. Cazenovia (5-0) faces Skaneateles (5-0) on May 10 to determine the OHSL Liberty League Championship as the “Eastern Lakers” seek to defend their 2010 league and sectional titles.

Tennis teams vie for tournament honors By Phil Blackwell Back in the rare and welcome sunshine, the Cazenovia and Chittenango boys tennis teams were in the same division for the April 30 CNY Invitational. Here, the Lakers earned 20 points, just ahead of the Bears (13 points), though both of them trailed Fayetteville-Manlius, who won with 33 points. Nick Christakos won the second singles title for Cazenovia, beating FM’s Eric Rosenthal 6-1, 6-4. Lee Cudney got involved in a close final in first singles before falling to Rosenthal’s teammate, Mike Mintskovsky, 5-7, 6-3, 7-5. As for the Bears, Caleb Mannix ran into Grimes’ Mike Bespiaty, taking a 6-1, 6-3 defeat, and Connor Toth met the same fate as he lost to the Cobras’ Matt Miller 6-0, 6-1. From here, Cazenovia went out

last Monday and swept LaFayette 5-0, but could not sustain that momentum on Wednesday as it took its first loss of the season to Christian Brothers Academy in a 4-1 decision. Neither Cudney nor Christakos could snare a game in their singles matches against, respectively, Matt and Colin Nardella. But Pat Marris and Noah Zimsmeister did beat Ash Kamani and Dan Mantooth 6-4, 6-2 to put the Lakers on the board. Still, a pair of three-set matches went against the Lakers. Sam Concilla could not hold on against Alex Ojugbeli in a 2-6, 6-1, 6-2 defeat, while Crozer Connor and John Lyga also went to three sets – and also fell, to Joel Castellini and Paul Mullin 6-2, 5-7, 6-4. The Lakers did sweep Hannibal 5-0 and 4-1 on Friday afternoon, moving to 9-1 on the season as it claimed most of the single sets to eight games. Lyga edged Trent Lamb 8-6 for one of those points.

Oneida and Vernon-Verona-Sherrill would have their big moment in Saturday’s Tri-Valley League Tournament at Utica Parkway Courts. Before this, the Red Devils lost a close 4-3 decision to Whitesboro, though Matt McCall beat Justin Guba 6-1, 6-3 and Steve Geer handled Drew Taylor 6-2, 6-4. Andrew Kane won in three sets over Anthony Abdou 6-0, 3-6, 6-2, but the Red Devils could not quite get the clinching point as, in another three-set battle, Dylan Duchene could not hold on, losing to Trevor Kennerknecht 3-6, 7-6, 7-5. Whitesboro won every doubles match in straight sets. VVS recovered Wednesday to beat Holland Patent 5-2. Playing single-set matches to 10 games, McCall, Geer, Kane and Duchene all won without allowing more than two games in any of their contests. Tom Visalli and Mike Morgan beat Andy Haier and Mike Anania 10-3.

It comes as little surprise that the incidence of arthritis among U.S. adults is nearly as epidemic as obesity. That’s because the two are likely related. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one in five (22 percent) U.S. adults has been diagnosed with arthritis. While this percentage translates to nearly 50 million people and is about the same percentage reported five years ago, there has been a significant increase in the number of people saying that joint pain (or other arthritis symptoms) limits their day-to-day activity (dressing, stair-climbing, gardening, etc.). This increase is attributed to overweight or obese Baby Boomers who are at the age when they are most likely to suffer from osteoarthritis.

Forest Blanchard and Chad Allen each had two RBIs, with Langey, Brian Gara, David McEntee and Alex Slamczynski driving in one run apiece. McEntee earned

Varsity Tennis announced at Caz College court naming ceremony By Wayne Westervelt

Director of Communications, Cazenovia College Cazenovia College students, staff, faculty, alumni, members of the Board of Trustees and friends of the college took to the courts this spring in celebration of the official naming of “The Honorable Bernadette T. & Harold T. Clark, Jr. Tennis Courts.” The April 15 naming ceremony served to thank and recognize Bernie and Tom Clark of Utica, for their generous gift to Cazenovia College, which allowed the college to repaint the tennis court surfaces, trim a number of trees that extended out over the courts and help support a club tennis team in 2011-12, as well as the start-up of varsity tennis. The Cazenovia College department of Fitness and Wellness implemented the club tennis program during the 2009-10 academic year with the intention that it would eventuate to an intercollegiate var-

sity sport in 2012. “We expect the club program, which consisted of 20 student-athletes this past year, to transition into men’s and women’s NCAA Division III varsity tennis in the 2012-13 academic year,” said Intercollegiate Athletics Director Rob Kenna. “These teams will compete in the North Eastern Athletic Conference, like most of the other varsity sports at Cazenovia College.” President Mark J. Tierno commented on how much he looks forward to seeing Cazenovia College varsity tennis players competing on their home courts and the positive impact it will have on the college’s ability to recruit and retain quality studentathletes. Tierno also took the opportunity to thank Bernie and Tom Clark for their continued “support of Cazenovia College and their investment in our campus, but most important for their investment in our students and their experiences at Cazenovia,” he said.

Finding your best bet for veggies

Wondering what varieties work well? So are researchers!

So, you’ve tilled the soil, dug your rows and have fertilizer at the ready. But what should you plant? Obviously, you will choose some favorite vegetables, herbs and fruits to cultivate in your home garden, but, since 2004, a tool has been available online to help you decide what is worthy of being in your garden. This tool, developed by the Cornell Cooperative Extension, is an interactive web site for gardeners to share their experiences with seed varieties, as well as their advice on which varieties grow the best. Gardeners can register at to rate and review their favorite vegetable varieties, as well as those that didn’t work so well for them. Anyone can visit the site to read those reviews and ratings to find varieties that will work best in their gardens. “It’s like an for vegetable varieties, only we don’t sell the seeds,” said Lori Bushway, the senior extension associate in Cornell University’s Department of Horticulture who coordinates the website. The concept is simple: Gardeners visit this site and report what varieties perform well - and not so well - in their gardens. Other gardeners visit to view the variety ratings and read the reviews to decide which might work well for them. According to the website, “Asking gardeners to partner

with researchers by collecting and sharing their own observations via the web could prove to be a winning combination for all. With a multitude of gardener observations at their finger tips, researchers can gain new insight into the performance of vegetable varieties under a wide range of conditions and practices, and ultimately provide more insight into which varieties perform best. At the same time, gardeners can get advice from a larger community of gardeners to help decide which varieties to try in their own garden.” In addition, the site offers a guide to growing 58 garden vegetables, with detailed descriptions, growing instructions, site and soil requirements, varieties and solutions for managing pests and diseases. “We’re calling on passionate vegetable gardeners to help us spread the word about the site and improve it by contributing more ratings and reviews,” said Bushway. “The more ratings and reviews we get, the more reliable and valuable the site becomes.” The site also links to other Cornell gardening resources, including online growing guides for more than 60 vegetable crops, and a project, Vegetable Varieties Investigation (VVI). This intergenerational citizen science project bridges the technology divide, helping youth connect with gardeners in their community, learn survey skills, and explore biodiversity through the whimsical world of vegetable varieties.

No garden for me…so seedlings can breathe a sigh of relief Just recently I did an Jennifer interview with horticulturist extraordinare Terry Ettinger – the guru of gardens. When Momsense discussing possible topics for the article I was about to write, he suggested tips for how to start a garden, the correct way. “Correct” is more my word than his; he was very


diplomatic about the whole subject. People, he said, should consider how their garden fits into their lifestyle and abilities. If you don’t want to lug a hose to the back corner of your yard every day, plant your garden closer to the water source. Keep it simple - if you like peas, cucumbers and squash, plant those varieties and forget the other vegetables you won’t eat as much.

Home market news

Taking that important step...wi$ely Real estate agents can help save buyers and sellers money Record-low interest rates and record-low housing prices have renewed interest in the floundering housing market for many people. Now could be the time to sell and buy a new home and earn an even bigger slice of the real estate pie. Whether an individual is a buyer or a seller, or doing both, his or her goal is to get the best financial deal on the home -- and often that means having a qualified real estate agent working in his or her corner. Those entering the real estate realm may have misconceptions about what’s involved. Oftentimes, individuals think they can go it alone and save money on real estate commissions in the process. However, not having a knowledgeable agent to navigate the process can end up costing more money in the long run. An agent is not there just to open up houses for viewing or to simply put a for-sale sign on the front lawn. Agents guide the seller or buyer through a complicated process of legalities and emotional hurdles.

The agent also n e g o t i at e s f o r the buyer and seller to help them make important financial decisions. “When sellers are interviewing real estate agents to market their homes, their primary focus is usually on the advertising that the agent will offer them,” said Jessica Goodbody of Weichert Realtors. “Advertising is important, but, once sellers have an offer, they need a strong negotiator to help them get the best price and terms. Buyers should also look for agents who have strong negotiating skills and neighborhood knowledge which will help them make the most of their purchasing power.” Individuals can expect a real estate agent to help them navigate a process that, to first-time buyers or sellers, can prove intimidating.


1. Schedule a consultation to discuss what features and amenities buyer is looking for in a home. 2. The agent may suggest buyers speak with a mortgage consultant to figure out their buying power and obtain a mortgage pre-approval letter. 3. The agent will then look up home listings in a particular price range and help the buyers to view the homes. 4. When buyers find a home they want to purchase, the real estate agent will help them come up with a fair market price and write up the contract to present to the seller. 5. The agent will help the buyer negotiate on the final price with the seller. 6. In some states, the agent will accept a down payment to place in trust or work with a real estate attorney on behalf of the buyer. 7. The agent may be present during a home inspection, which is recommended. 8. The agent will then schedule the home appraisal. 9. He or she will then confirm the closing and be present at closing with the buyer and the attorney, if necessary.


1. The real estate agent will meet with the sellers and evaluate the home and property. 2. He or she will do a market analysis to figure out the best price to list the house based on the neighborhood and comparable sales. 3. The agent may make suggestions for repairs or improvements that can help make the home more attractive to buyers. 4. The real estate agent may present a marketing plan that indicates where the home will be advertised. 5. He or she will write up a listing agreement and begin the process of marketing the home. 6. An open house for real estate brokers may be scheduled, also a caravan of brokers from the agents’ own real estate office and surrounding affiliates. 7. An open house for buyers will be scheduled. 8. The agent will field calls from other agents and notify the seller when a viewing request has been made. 9. Follow-up feedback can be offered, which may include information the agent receives by making calls to people who viewed the home or by tracking how many potential buyers viewed the home listing. 10. When an offer comes in, the agent will notify the sellers and advise him or her of the negotiation process. 11. The agent will be present during the home inspection, if the buyer requests one. 12. The agent will schedule with the city or town to have a certificate of occupancy inspection conducted. 13. The seller will be notified by the agent when the buyer has obtained a mortgage commitment and made good faith deposits. 14. The agent will likely be present at the home closing with the real estate attorneys. Individuals buying or selling a home can certainly do it by themselves, but real estate agents have the knowledge and provide assistance through the myriad steps of the process, helping individuals to save time and money.

Although I have been a homeowner for more than a decade, I have yet to add â&#x20AC;&#x153;gardenerâ&#x20AC;? to my list of accomplishments. Not because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love homegrown fruit and vegetables â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like a tomato picked right from the garden, still warm

from the sun. I get that, and am able to sample it, thanks to my father, the home gardening pro. He has built an enclosure, using logs as cornerstones, about eight feet high, in order to keep deer and other pests out of his garden. He created his own irrigation system in order to keep the soil moist, the workings of which, though described by him in detail, remain a mystery to me. I have inherited many

traits from my parents, most good, but one thing I got from my mother was her self-admitted â&#x20AC;&#x153;brown thumb.â&#x20AC;? Plants die around me, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite depressing. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even attempt house plants anymore â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too depressing to see brittle, brown leaves scattered on the shelf around wilting, sad once-greenery.

maintenance perennials outside, which I even water once in a while. Fortunately for seedlings everywhere, I have not elected to begin a vegetable patch of my own. I know myself and my limitations: 1. I have a low attention span. This means I will walk right by a plant begging for attention and not notice. 2. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always in a rush. Even just to the store to pick up the milk, I tend to grab and run. No time to weed, feed or seed. 3. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tend to tie things in a neat bow. I know what will happen: I will begin the garden with the best of intentions, then let it rest, half-done, until the leaves start falling in autumn. In the meantime, the garden will serve as a reminder of my defeat. So, though I recognize the value of having a home garden â&#x20AC;&#x201C; money saved, yummy produce and enjoyment of being outdoors while working â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to start one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yet. Why does the fact that I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t firmly closed the door on the idea of starting a garden sound more like a threat than a promise?

Tree talk

The importance of periodic pruning By Tom Mullarney ISA Board Certified Master Arborist, Bartlett Tree Experts Central New York properties have both young and mature trees that require periodic maintenance. Pruning is the most common procedure for maintaining trees. Pruning should be done with an understanding of how the trees respond to each cut. Improper pruning may cause damage that can last for the treeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifespan or, worse yet, can shorten the treeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifespan.

Why is periodic pruning necessary?

Pruning is necessary for various reasons such as the removal of weak branching, and to provide structural, lighting, utility lines, pedestrian traffic and/or vehicular traffic clearance. Pruning is also an invigorating process. By removing dead, dying, diseased, and crossing and conflicting limbs, energy reserves are directed towards growth in remaining branches. Periodic pruning should maintain a desirable, natural shape while enhancing the beauty and health of your landscape.

When should you begin pruning trees?

Pruning young plants helps them build a strong structure to support future growth. Most young trees require a strong central leader and balanced branching to ensure the proper distribution of weight and to prevent future structural problems. A tree with minimal structural problems will be less likely to fail during a heavy rain or snowstorm. Proper structure reduces the risk to your treeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health and also reduces the risk of damage to your home and property from falling limbs.

Wound dressings

Wound dressings were once thought to help wound closure, and protect against disease and insect activity. However, research has shown that dressings do not reduce decay or speed closure. In addition, they rarely prevent disease or insect activity. Most experts do not recommend using wound dressings. If dressing is to be used it is simply for aesthetic purposes only (i.e., covering an obvious tree wound).

When Should I Consult A Certified Arborist?

If a pruning job requires the use of a ladder, you need to call a certified arborist to have the work completed. I strongly recommend hiring a certified arborist to evaluate and give you appropriate recommendations for any of your pruning needs. A tree care professional will be able to provide you with the services of a trained crew, including all required safety equipment and the appropriate liability insurance. Be careful if an arborist suggests â&#x20AC;&#x153;toppingâ&#x20AC;? your tree. A knowledgeable arborist knows that topping is not a standard practice, as it is very harmful to trees. Remember, periodic pruning can provide major health, safety and aesthetic benefits for your trees; but only if it is completed properly.

Katrina Russo, President – CEO of Seneca Federal Savings and Loan Association, is proud that the Bank’s hometown approach comes first. “As a community bank, we have first-hand knowledge of our local markets and its businesses,” said Russo. She mentioned the advantage smaller, local banks have in pricing deposit and loan products, reaching out to customers and making exceptions. “We know our customers and understand their place in the local economy,” she continued. This community bank is also set apart from the larger institutions in that they have always taken great pride in the tremendous in-house talent they have built at the Association. Because they develop a deep talent pool, they are able to promote from within, which furthers their understanding of their customer base. “Our personnel live and work in the same areas as our customers,” said Russo. It is because of this veteran talent that they have been able to continue to perform strongly, even in the most difficult operating environments. “This is a win-win environment that we work within. Our employees understand our customers’ concerns and our customers reap the benefit of the Association’s ability to quickly adjust to the local economy, which can change rapidly,” said the president. The current operating environment in the banking arena is one of change and opportunity. The Association is in a stage where policymakers are looking to reform and reshape our financial system no matter what the size or charter of the institution. She continued, “While we must make sure

At left, Seneca Federal Savings President-CEO Katrina M. Russo and Wendy K. Bodnar, EVP-CFO. that we are out there telling the positive story of community banks, we must also make sure we are looking for the opportunities that the changes to the economic landscape will bring. In this new landscape, I believe there will be tremendous opportunities for community banks.” The president, who has now been in her current position for one year, reiterated the message of the past President. Simply put she stated, “Our message is simple, and a proven one: community lenders extend credit responsibly and work to increase the wealth of its customers through the lowest possible lending products and the highest possible deposit product rates.” She stressed that the community bank model works. She continues to tell their story of responsible lending and of the positive customer relationships they strive to build. After all, they have a great story to tell and if they don’t tell it, who will?

By Waded Gonzalez-Candelaria, public health educator Are you thinking about fixing up the old homestead? Are you planning on doing the project on your own or hiring someone to do it for you? Was your home built before 1978? If it was, it may contain lead paint. When lead paint is disturbed during remodeling, dangerous lead dust is created. Young children and pregnant women are at the greatest risk from exposure to lead dust, but anyone can become lead poisoned. The Onondaga County Health Department Lead Poisoning Control Program would like you to consider the following questions before you start your project: Was the house built before 1978? Will you be disturbing the paint? Have you had the paint tested to see if it is lead paint? What safety precautions will you or your contractor/handyman take to protect yourself and your children from exposure to hazardous lead dust? The most important thing to consider when remodeling is controlling the lead dust. You can do this by following these tips: Work smart To keep paint chips and dust contained, work in one area at a time; enclose the work area using heavy plastic (6 mil); Keep pregnant women and children out of the work area; Protect yourself by washing your hands and eating or drinking outside the work area; Wear a protective mask to prevent inhaling lead dust. Work wet Avoid creating lead dust by using a spray bottle to wet an area to be sanded or scraped Work clean Clean up daily. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow anyone into the work area until the daily cleanup is complete Learn more about working safely with lead paint.

Gearing up for the CNYSA Regatta

Flying Dutchman: sailing with trapeze-artists Submitted By Jean Doering Willow Bank Yacht Club and Cazenovia Lake will be host the Central New York Sailing Association Annual Regatta the weekend of July 9 and 10. The event will bring participants from 30 sailing clubs across the state to partake in races. In the preceding weeks, a series of articles about the various fleets that will be seen competing will be featured. The Flying Dutchman is a 20-foot one design high-performance two-person monohull racing dinghy. Developed in the early 1950s, its large sail area per unit weight makes it a very fast boat. The boat utilizes a trapeze harness for the crew and hiking straps for the skipper to counterbalance the wind force on its sails. Trials were held for the new boat class in the summer of 1952 in Holland, and the name of the design, Flying Dutchman, was born. It made its Olympic debut at the 1960 Olympics. The Flying Dutchman was sailed in Olympic competitions from 1960 through 1992. In 1964 Harold Morse, Bill Diefendorf and James McNitt took their three

Flying Dutchman sailboats from Willow Bank Yacht Club to the Olympic Trials; an unusually high quota of Flying Dutchman sailors from one sailing club. Willow Bank Yacht Club raced a large and strong fleet of the watercraft and was named the Flying Dutchman Number Two Fleet in the USA. An annual regatta is held each year at Cazenovia, when out-of-town boats compete with the local fleet, for the Cuspidor Trophy, which was presented by Content Morse in 1962 and first won by R. W. Parsons. Harold and Content Morse imported the first Flying Dutchman to Cazenovia, from Germany. The Flying Dutchman is still one of the fastest racing dinghies in the world. They have beautiful lines, carry a mainsail, a very large foresail known as a genoa, and a large balloon spinnaker sail for running downwind and reaches. Its light weight and large sail area allow it to plane easily even when sailing upwind. The Flying Dutchman has been the basis for many important innovations in sailing over the past half century, including a roller furling genoa, windward sheeting


The captain and crew aboard Flying Dutchmen utilize their own body weight to counter-balance the forceful winds the which propel the watercraft. The Central New York Sailing Association Annual Regatta will be held on Cazenovia Lake, July 9 and 10. Among the featured fleets, a number of sailors will race along the shores in their Flying Dutchmen. traveler, spinnaker chute, spinnaker pole launchers and composite construction. The boat was the first design to make use of a trapeze gear, a feature commonly found today on high performance dinghies and catamarans. These innovations developed because the Flying Dutchman was left as an “open” one-design class, where innovation and

development in the boat is allowed and encouraged. Parameters that influence the speed of the boat directly, including hull shape, weight and sail area are strictly controlled, but other areas can be adapted to suit. Jean Doering is volunteer publicist for Willow Bank Yacht Club.

Adirondack Paddlefest 2011

Presented by Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company, one of the premier outdoor shops in the country, Paddlefest 2011 will feature over a thousand canoes and kayaks for sale. Representatives, manufacturers, owners, and designers from many of the leading companies in paddle sports will be on hand to answer questions, give demonstrations, and help each customer find the perfect fit in boats, gear, and accessories. Having that kind of expertise on hand truly sets Paddlefest apart from other shows and sales. Paddlefest also features a full

test paddle beach, which affords everyone the opportunity to paddle any boat before purchase. The test paddle beach is a hit year after year because there’s no better way to choose a canoe or kayak than to try it out on the water first. Everyone from first timers to experts is welcome to spend the weekend trying out as many different boats as they want. 2011 also brings the addition of stand-up paddleboards, or SUPs, to Paddlefest. These surfboardinspired vessels are available in a

variety of styles to suit any level of ability. SUP popularity is on the rise as more and more people across the country discover the fun and excitement of this new way to get on the water, and the Paddlefest test paddle beach is the perfect place to try one out! If that’s not enough, seminars and demos will be held throughout the weekend to give prospective


buyers and anyone with an interest a lesson or two in the basics of getting the most out of their time on the water. This year’s topics include Women’s Approach to Paddling, Intro the Stand Up Paddling, Whitewater River Touring and Camping, Choosing the Right Paddle, and even an Intro to Whitewater Kayaking seminar, to name a few. Gear and accessories, including roof racks, will be up to 15% off at the show. A team of rack installers will be on hand to outfit cars as well, eliminating the headache of assembly and adjustment for new equipment and providing an easy way to get a newlypurchased canoe or kayak home safely. So if you love the outdoors or just want to spend a spring weekend in the Adirondacks, plan on visiting us May 20-22 in Old Forge NY. For more information, visit

History In history: Week of May 11

glittering street parades ever seen in Cazenovia. Bands, chariots, mirth-making clowns and wild animals are only a part of this gorgeous street display.

125 Years Ago May 13, 1886 - A new walk is being laid on Hurd Street which is greatly to the satisfaction of the residents thereon.

A meeting of the graduates of the Cazenovia Union Free School is called for 7:30 p.m. next Monday evening May 15, in the senior room at the school building to discuss the feasibility of holding an alumni banquet at commencement time next month.

Mr. P.H. Donnelly, our new groceryman, was the first to come to the front with fresh, ripe strawberries and Charles Pratt, of the Cazenovia House, was the first to serve them to his guests in a delicate shortcake last Sunday. A Cazenovia correspondent of the Utica Herald says: A servantless Cazenovia family has found relief by a “creeping crib” made of a shallow dry goods box set upon casters. It is lined with a soft bedquilt covered with pink cambric, carpeted on the bottom and papered outside. In it the baby is off the cold floor and its perils, and at the same time has the needed freedom. 100 Years Ago May 11, 1911 - Cazenovia was never more beautiful than it is now. The village fathers are exercising their high prerogatives in a most commendable way. Our sidewalks are being greatly improved every year in a substantial and handsome manner, and our trees are now receiving personal attention

A few trees have been filled with cement at great cost to real estate owners and there is now a proposition before the Village Board to have all the shade trees in town cared for by a man fully equipped for the business. We believe it would be a good thing. Taking the water from the pond for sprinkling purposes will so relieve our water system as that we can use water much

more freely about our premises for sprinkling lawns and watering gardens, and for household purposes, a great boon in a dry time, certainly.

Peterboro sites open NY Heritage Weekend By Dot Willsey

Two New York State Underground Railroad Heritage sites in Peterboro will open for the 2011 season during New York Heritage Weekend, May 14 and 15. In 2009, thousands of visitors celebrated the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial during the inaugural launch of Heritage Weekend in the Hudson and Champlain Valleys. This year, a state-wide heritage celebration is being planned for the weekend of May 14 to coincide with National Preservation Month and help kick off the summer tourism season. Exhibits in the Barn and the Land Office at the Gerrit Smith Estate National Historic

Planting them on their side starts the draping effect right away or use a hanging basket’s contents, gently taken apart. 10 essential planting pointers 1. Match the size of the pot to the size of material to be grown. Consider shallow pan or tall narrow shapes to decorate tabletops or drab corners. 2. Using gravel in the bottom is terrible for drainage; either fill with good, pre-moistened, sterile potting mix completely, or to reduce weight for enormous containers, use a upturned plastic nursery pot or a sealed bag of packing peanuts in the bottom third.

Landmark will be open. An introductory video and exhibits will be featured, and the Peterboro Mercantile will be open at the Visitor Center. Exhibits include information on the Smith family, the use of family wealth, the Underground Railroad, African Americans in Peterboro, and abolitionists who came to Peterboro. The National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum will begin its first season of regular hours on Heritage Weekend.

[Only use pots with no drainage for water gardens or pots on covered porches.] 4. Arrange the plants in the pot before adding the final potting soil, repositioning until satisfied with the arrangement. 5. Add a slow release plant food, such as Osmocote, to the remaining soil. Firmly fill around the plants, avoiding air pockets. The soil level should be at least 1 inch from the rim, to allow watering without runoff. [Add Osmocote again in 3 months.] 6.

various textures and flower or leaf size. Don’t overlook perennials, grasses, shrubs or tropical houseplants as elements - many of which can overwinter in the ground or indoors. Foliage can make as big an impact as flowers and don’t need deadheading, as flowers will require. 8. Use no more than 3 colors per pot, including any leaf variegation, which repeat parts of each other, the leaf, petals or center. 9. Hot tropical colors are best seen and appreciated from a distance, while cool pastels belong where the viewing is intimate or close to windows and doorways. 10. Chartreuse and dark purple toned foliage blend with everything. Vibrant or pale colors displayed against those in the same tonal range won’t overpower each other. White variegated foliage is best with pastels, while yellow splashed leaves compliment warm shades. Be sure not to mix the two.

not. Many college kids appear “poor” on paper. They’re now receiving food stamps in record numbers, one reason our food stamp costs are twice what they were in 2008. Despite our country’s massive, unsustainable deficits, many people want no cuts in the government dough they receive. Which makes me wonder: Whatever happened to the American spirit? While so many suburban-bred Americans are happy to take from others, many legal immigrants ask for nothing but the opportunity to work. Sure, some quickly figure out how to cash in on government generosity, but most cook our food, clean our clothes and fix our cars without complaint. Like the fellow I know from Lebanon, many are more American than most of us.

Spring LNO

House Stone’s Throw for hors d’oeuvres, raffles and the “Outrageous Hat Contest.” Event organizers and local business owners Laurie Hunt and Amanda Bury were happy the weather turned out for the evening’s festivities, along with representatives from Nelson Farms and Cazenovia women. “This is just such a fun event, it’s great to see all these familiar faces out and about” said Hunt. “We are thrilled with the turnout; we owe a lot to the local businesses and Nelson Farms.” “Nelson Farms is fantastic,” added Bury. “All the tastings in each of the shops are all supplied by them. They feature Central New York products and help to promote small local businesses,” she said. “It’s a really cool thing.” Located just down Route 20 in Cazenovia, Nelson Farms is an advanced processing facility for small scale food processors, farmers and producers. Working closely with Morrisville State College, the organization helps to provide agri-business opportunities to entrepreneurial specialty producers. Nelson Farms assists clients in product development, processing and co-packing, distribution, sales and marketing. “We are so excited to be a part of Ladies Night Out; it was an honor to be asked,” said Marketing Associate Becky Burmaster. “I

know this is the second year they’ve done the spring event, and it’s great. It increases awareness of local businesses and boosts community involvement.” Once all of the participating Cazenovia women gathered at the Stone’s Throw, local attorney and event emcee Jen Basic conducted the evening’s proceedings. Ladies were given the chance to purchase raffle tickets while they sampled appetizers and area wines and waited for the Outrageous Hat Contest. Raffle prizes included gift baskets and certificates from local businesses, as well as $180 for the 50-50 raffle winner. The grand attraction of the evening was the Outrageous Hat Contest, to which the winner received a $100 Caz Bucks gift certificate. Nancy Stevens took top honors, sporting her bright orange top hat. The event concluded around 10 p.m. as women slowly filed back onto Albany Street with their spoils and large smiles. The evening was considered such a success, Hunt and Bury have already begun to conceptualize next year’s event. For more information on upcoming GCACC sponsored events visit cazenovia. com, call 655-9243 or stop by their location at 51 Albany St. To learn more about Nelson Farms access their website at NelsonFarms. org, call 655-3301 or visit their shop at 3261 Route 20.


Hydrofracking “I just want to slow them down as much as I can, give the public the opportunity to have legislation in place to protect their interests,” said Town of Cazenovia Supervisor Ralph Monforte. Cazenovia attorneys John Langley and Carlos Gavilondo were also present to address legal issues which may arise with the advent of fracking, including rights of landowners. Because it is relatively new, officials in local municipalities such as Cazenovia are taking steps to gain some control of the industry on a local level, as well as pressure state lawmakers to pass laws for their protection. There is currently legislation pending in both the Assembly and Senate to ad-


From page 3 dress regulation of hydrofracking. The addition of these laws, if passed, would further set forth what are the rights of local municipalities in governing this. There are other ways to regulate the hydro-fracking industry locally, such as road use agreements. “We have looked at ways to utilize laws in effect to our advantage,” Monforte said. “We want to bring to light the issues that we can control,” Webber said. “Surrounding towns are taking similar measures. We need to send a message to the state; from there we can move forward to do what we can to encourage legislators to do the right thing.” Those present at the

meeting believe hydrofracking in Cazenovia will not become a reality in the immediate future. Webber added, “We are on the fringe, we have the luxury of time.” The public is encouraged to educate themselves on findings and new developments and attend future meetings of the Hydrofracking Committee, for further discussion of their concerns and to gain awareness of their rights under changing legislation. Regular meetings are held at 7 p.m. the first Monday of every other month. Elaine Barnes is a Syracuse native employed as an airline employee and freelance journalist for area publications.

One of the strongest muscles in the human body, the tongue can also tell how internal organs such as the liver, kidneys, heart, spleen and are operating. Along with their lengthy list of accomplishments and accolades, both Treatman and Lemay are members of the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, Certified Family Physicians and New York State Certified Physician Acupuncturists; having completed the required 300 hours of training. In the past 11 years of operation, Complementary Health Services has grown to two locations. Cazenovia residents are able to receive treatment at 3566 Pompey Hol-

low Rd., while those living closer to the city can receive treatment at the East Syracuse office, at 6701Manlius Center Rd. As Treatman is currently employed as the director of employee health at Syracuse’s Crouse Hospital, Lemay is the primary caregiver for Complementary Health Services. She will be on hand at the Cazenovia Natural Healing and Wellness Fair, held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday May 14, at the American Legion Hall on Chenango Street. To learn more the doctors and services offered, access the business’s website, call 655-8637 or email yogadoc@ Discounts are offered to students and cancer patients.

Fatal Motorcycle accident kills one Madison County Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were called to the scene of a motor vehicle accident that occurred at approximately 4:45 p.m. May 7 on Gorge Road/State Rt. 13 in Cazenovia. Madison County Undersheriff John Ball stated that a motorcycle, operated by Terry Richardson, 59, of Fulton, was traveling northbound on Route 13 with a group of other motorcyclists when he rounded a curve, crossed the center line and struck the rear portion of a vehicle operated by Arlene Symonds, 53, of Sherburne, who was traveling southbound. Richardson was thrown from the motorcycle upon impact. He was wearing a helmet. Richardson was pronounced dead on the scene by Cazenovia Area Volunteer Ambulance paramedics. Cazenovia Fire and Rescue responded and assisted. State Route 13 was temporarily closed in both directions during the investigation but has since reopened. Madison County Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have completed their investigation and have determined that contributing factors to the accident was Richardsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to keep right and unsafe speed. The Madison County Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office transported Richardson to the Onondaga County Medical Examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office for an autopsy.

In honor of Sylvia S. Wycoff, two informal gatherings are planned to take place. The first will be held at Evergreen Cemetery in Cazenovia at 1 p.m. May 20. The second will be held on Syracuse University Campus at Crouse College at 10 a.m. on Saturday May 21. Anyone planning to attend the gathering on the SU campus should notify Jim at 837-4316, for parking instructions.

Administrative Assistant Hi There! My name is Rommel and I am a sixyears-young Long Haired German Shepherd. I am looking for a home that will understand how to help a dog who is on the nervous side. A quieter home with older children would best suit me. I am housebroken, crate trained and good with other dogs. If you are interested in meeting me, come and visit!

Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meadow

How do you do? My name is Spunky and I am a sevenyear-old neutered male. I weigh in at 22 pounds, so a weight loss program will be in order for me. (The staff told me I had to say that). I do well by myself or with other cats. I do like a nice soft spot to curl up in and would actually love to be a lap cat. You can visit me in the community room or call Wanderersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rest at 697-2796 for more information. Wanderersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rest Humane Association is located at 7138 Sutherland Dr. in Canastota. For more information on these, and other animals that are ready to be adopted, call 697-2796 or visit
