West Genesee Academic Decathlon wins state title West Genesee High School’s academic decathlon team went to Onondaga Community College for the state championships on March 11 and 12 and finished first overall — for the first time. The team, coached by Scott Duda, won 40 medals in several categories. The team included Dennis “DJ” Campbell, Abigail Hard, Alec Kearns, Caitlin Nolan, Kaitlyn Richards, Jerry Roy, Matthew Serrao,

Jennifer Smacher and Kevan Spencer (Martin Leff was unable to attend). Thomas Brogan was an alternate. West Genesee earned the right to compete in the State Championships by placing first in their regional competition in January, and has been a major factor in the state level competitions for the past three years.

Three weeks ago the Elbridge village board passed a resolution ending the village’s contract with the Elbridge Volunteer Fire Department, paving the way for consolidation of the Elbridge and Jordan volunteer fire departments. But after a meeting between the board and Elbridge firefighters March 7 at village hall, consolidation will have to wait. “The hard part about any consolidation is somebody has to be dissolved. It’s the nature of the word,” Mayor Hank Doerr said before the meeting. The Elbridge village board voted unanimously to lift a state of emergency, to cancel last week’s resolution to abolish the fire department and to cancel a referendum allowing residents to vote on whether to abolish the fire department. The board also waived any future public hearings on the issue. Doerr was pleased with the civil nature of the meeting, attended by about 50 people, where the Elbridge VFD was successful in convincing the board it should remain an active fire company. About 22 of the department’s 44 registered volunteers attended. “Cooler heads prevailed and sanity took over last night,” Doerr said. The board’s decision to lift the state of emergency was influenced by an unexpected boost in response by firefighters following the board’s Feb. 21 vote. On Feb. 23, 15 Elbridge firefighters responded to a See Fire department, page 3

Elbridge town board asks state DOT to lower speed limit on Route 5 By Ned Campbell editor@eagle-observer.com The Elbridge Town Board passed a resolution Feb. 24 to ask the New York State Department of Transportation to lower the speed limit on Route 5 East. The town is asking the state to lower the speed limit from 45 MPH to 35 MPH between the village of Elbridge line and Sunview Drive, and from 55 mph to 45 mph between Sunview Drive and Rolling Hills Mobile Home Park farther east. The request was made on behalf of Roger Tumber, a resident of Sunview Drive. Two years ago, Tumber submitted 200 signatures to the DOT requesting a speed limit reduction following a fatal accident on that stretch of road. After that petition, on Aug. 11, 2010, a three-car crash in the same area of Route 5 took the lives of Ronald Mabb, 68, and Marlene Demay, 76, both of Elbridge. Roger made his most recent request through the town board following an accident last month where a driver on Route 5 swerved to avoid a car that was pulling out of the Dollar General Store parking lot. The pole, complete with three transformers, collapsed and landed on the car. The driver was not hurt. Tumber said the area has become more commercial over the years,

and a lowered speed limit would be a cost-effective way to improve the conditions for pulling out onto Route 5. “Two signs. That’s all you need,” he said, adding that the area is already well patrolled by state police. “These guys are good,” Tumber said. “If they went a little farther, they’d pick up twice as many tickets.” DOT recognizes Route 5 issues Just days after passing the Feb. 24 resolution, the town received a letter from the state addressing the town’s requests for traffic adjustments on the west side of town. The town has been asking the state to look at the intersection for about five years due to the frequency of accidents caused by cars passing along the left shoulders of Route 5, Town Supervisor Ken Bush said. In the letter, Regional Director of Transportation Carl Ford said DOT traffic engineers completed a highway safety investigation and found that left turn lanes are needed along Route 5 near the intersection of Hamilton Road. “Placement of opposing left turn lanes operating under protected/ permissive phasing would eliminate the occurrence of vehicles passing on the shoulder around stopped vehicles and would provide greater opportunity for vehicles to safely

perform left turn maneuvers,” Ford wrote. Bush said the state DOT plans to make improvements to the intersection if funding becomes available. “With the state’s current finances, who knows how long it’ll be before they get sufficient funds to let out a contract to actually do it,” he said. “But at least they’ve recognized [the need for improvement]. That’s the crucial step.” The DOT also looked into possible safety improvements for the intersection of Route 5 and East Brutus Street. The state’s study confirmed safety issues due to “skewed alignment and limited gaps in the approaching Route 5 traffic stream mainly during peak hours.” The DOT’s maintenance crews will “restripe the East Brutus Street approach to better align or ‘tee’ up with Route 5 and improve the available turning radius for small trucks and cars,” Ford wrote. The state will also add and replace “intersection” warning signs along Route 5 leading up to the intersection and will replace “Deer Crossing” signs “to better define crossing locations based on the frequency and overall number of deer hits.” Ford said the state’s study for the installation of a traffic light at the intersection of Sandbank Road and Route 5 will be completed soon.

Marcellus surgeon named fellow Todd Battaglia, of Marcellus, was recently awarded the 2011 Traveling Fellowship from the Arthroscopy Association of North America. The award, given annually to only three orthopedic surgeons in North America, provides the recipient with the opportunity and funding to study with lead-

ing arthroscopic surgeons across the country. Battaglia is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports injuries and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee, and is a partner with Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists. He sees patients at their offices in Camillus, Onondaga Hill, Dewitt and Liverpool.

Camillus Police News

Department recognizes citizens, officers The Camillus Police Department’s 2010 award recipients were recognized at the Camillus town board meeting March 8. Holly Reid, owner of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Center in Baldwinsville, received a 2010 Citizen Appreciation Award. Reid has provided the town of Camillus /town of VanBuren dog control officer with the utmost professional, ethical and compassionate service. His team of employees goes above and beyond in providing care for injured, ill or suffering animals. The Camillus Police Department truly appreciates Dr. Reid’s service for its dependability, exceptional talent and unselfish dedication – which truly make a difference in avoiding an animal’s suffering. Officer Michael J. Schreyer was recognized as the 2010 Officer of the Year. Officer Schreyer’s endless drive while on patrol, processing crime scenes, conducting investigations, or managing the explorer post was instrumental in the success of daily opera-

Fire department call at around 5 p.m. after a tractor trail had backed into a building off Route 5. Doerr said he couldn’t remember the last time that many volunteers responded at 5 p.m., a time when many are preoccupied getting home from work. The fire department also gave the board reason to think the improvement would not be temporary. Since Feb. 21, six firefighters have become up-todate on their physicals and the fire department agreed to accept the village board’s workplace violence policy. The department also plans to increase recruiting and update its bylaws. Elbridge Fire Chief Tim Ganey resigned March 3, though he remains a member of the department. Elbridge Fire Company President Bob Chuff is serving as interim chief until the department’s elections in April. Doerr said part of the problem before, that led to the state of emergency, was poor communication between the board and the fire department. “We could be talking to a toaster and it would’ve gotten back to the department as fast as it was,” Doeer said. After the meeting, village officials expect that to change. The board and the department agreed to have at least five Elbridge VFD representatives attend the board’s monthly meetings instead of just one. The board will also require the department to submit more specific monthly reports that

tions. His enthusiasm toward teamwork, along with keen appreciation of his responsibilities made him stand out amongst his peers. Officer Schreyer’s contributions to the department, superior work and support of our mission are greatly appreciated. Officer Kristen Afarian has been selected as a first line supervisor with the town of Camillus Police Department, effective March 7. Officer Afarian will assume the rank of Sergeant and assume her new duties as a road patrol supervisor. Sergeant Afarian is the first female to obtain the rank of Sergeant with the Camillus Police Department. Village of Liverpool Police Chief William Becker awarded Camillus Police Detective James Nightingale with the Village of Liverpool Meritorious Service Medal and Camillus Police Sergeant Joseph Farella with the Village of Liverpool Unit Citation Award for their instrumental assistance in the 2011 baby Isabella homicide investigation.

From page 1 include time of incident, how many responded and what time the fire engine rolled. “We’ll be on top of that much more than we were in the past, and they want that as well,” Doerr said. The board specifically asked the volunteers who came to them a few weeks back with safety concerns if they’d seen an improvement in the department. They said that they had seen a major change. “I did not know things would move in the direction they moved so quickly,” Doerr said. “It was shocking to them as well.” Consolidation still an option Doerr said consolidation is not off the table for good. “It’s not out of the picture,” he said. “It is coming and they have to be prepared for it.” The village board did a consolidation study two years ago that found various fiscal advantages in pooling the two department’s resources. Doerr said it was also clear that there were times when more Elbridge firefighters were be available for certain fires than Jordan firefighters, and vice versa. “Plus, it gives you the chance of both buildings responding to a particular need, depending on what the need is,” he said. Doerr said a strengthened Elbridge VFD will allow for an easier, more affective consolidation of the town’s fire departments.

From the Executive Editor

In the wake of Japan’s nuclear horror, looking back at another nuclear accident By Gary Catt It was just about 32 years ago this month that the U.S. faced the most significant nuclear accident in the nation’s nuclear power history – Three Mile Island. I was there. So, it’s with a sense of fear and awe that I watch Japan’s nuclear horror unfold in the wake of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake that peeled open at least two of the country’s nuclear power plants and prompted the evacuation of thousands. March 28, 1979 brought a bright, sunny and unseasonably warm day to Harrisburg, Pa., the state capital where I worked as the bureau chief for a metropolitan newspaper. It was a slow time in the legislative calendar and most of its members were back in their districts. The newsroom was on the second floor of the Capitol at the rear of the rotunda. I was prepared for a lazy day of phone calls and maybe a walk around the grounds before calling it day. As usual, I stopped by the Associated Press desk to see if what was making news overnight. The onduty reporter shrugged that there wasn’t much news, but something might be going on at the power plant down the (Susquehanna) river. He heard from a radio reporter who heard from someone else that the state police had been called to Three Mile Island. The exchange raised my curiosity. There wasn’t much going on. It was warm, sunny and open sunroof type weather. I asked my colleague from another newspaper if he wanted to take a ride. The sweep of subsequent events gobbled the next two years of my professional life. Some 30 minutes later I was at the entrance gate to TMI. The gatekeeper and a single trooper manned the checkpoint outside the fenced causeway to the plant. We were, of course, barred entry and told to contact the plant owner, Metropolitan Edison if we had any questions. There was no other movement on the island that we could discern.

The overall burden of local property taxes According to the Onondaga County Executive Joannne M. Mahoney, when you add all the taxes property owners in our county pay — the county, city, town, village, school, fire, water, sewer, sanitation, special districts and more — it totals a staggering $866 million dollars. This is strictly the amount of dollars raised in direct property taxes on residential and business properties in Onondaga County. It is a phenomenal amount of money to expect local property owners to pay year after year, especially when one realizes Onondaga County property taxes are among the highest in the nation. The high rank is predicated upon the percentage of real estate taxes paid based on property assessed valuations. The recent hullabaloo with the newly established

The good Ohl days sales tax distribution formula, with major changes effecting schools and all municipal governments, serves as a case in point. Local municipalities, including school districts, really face what can be described as a triple whammy. The first is the loss of sales tax revenue, the second is the anticipated decreases in state and federal aid and the third is the specter of rapidly increasing retirement and health insurance costs. Difficult situations should force us to question everything we do and to continually strive to do things better. A new trend seems to be emerging, one taking the place of the earlier ef-

forts to merely protect the turf of local governments. Municipal governments have several choices they can implement in their efforts to realize financial equilibrium. The first is to undertake belt-tightening efforts internally. An example of this is the decision of West Genesee School District staff members to forego contracted salary increases for one year. The staff members of several other school districts in the county have joined in this cost-cutting is effort. Another approach gaining some headway is the idea of examining the structure of our local governments. Can dollars be saved by merging services, thus reducing some budgetary pressures? One example for consideration is a suggestion advanced by the Onondaga County Executive. She has proposed turn-

The Marcellus Mustangs retained their first place tie with Baldwinsville by downing Skaneateles 68-62 on the loser’s floor. The Mustangs were co-champions last year with Skaneateles. The Mustang’s only loss was to Solvay and B’Ville lost to Marcellus by one point. Skaneateles held a two-point lead at the half. With the score bouncing back and forth, Leo Miller picked up a loose ball and sped the length of the court to put the Mustangs out in front for good. Tim Taylor led the scoring for the night with 23 points. Dave Driver and John Parry had 18 and 12 respectively.

Most every farm had a flock of sheep, anywhere from 25 to 100 and larger flocks depending on how much pasture land was available for sheep. At the present, there are very few sheep raised in Onondaga County. I have no way to know exactly how many. Sheep shearing required a man that knew what he was doing. In my younger days, they sheared sheep with what they called sheep shears. Some of the men that I knew sheared sheep in the Spring. They were: George Share, Benjamin Powell and Thomas Taylor. Around 1907, the hand power shearing machine came about. I sold some of those in my shop. I also had a machine for grinding the knives. I sold lots of wool twine to tie the wool up from each sheep. There were men that made a business of buying and shipping wool. Our mills bought lots of it. In the mills they had

wool sorters because, as most of you may know, there are many different grades of wool. It was a busy time in the Spring when the lambs were being born. You had to be with your flock quite a bit of the time. The Marcellus wrestling team ended their season on a winning note as they beat Union Springs 26-22. The Mustangs had 8 wins and 5 losses this season. Leonard MacDonald turned in a fine performance when he pinned his opponent and by Pete Ilacqua who brought the Mustangs out into a safe lead. Three members of the team got to the finals at the County Wrestling Tournament. They were Bernard MacDonald, Leonard MacDonald and George Reagan. Pete Ilacqua made it to the semi-finals. Bernie MacDonald was high scorer for the season followed by George Reagan, Len MacDonald and Dick Campbell. Marriage should be a duetâ&#x20AC;Ś when one sings, the other should clap!

Community News Marcellus Daisies earn â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;respect and authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; petals By Ned Campbell The Marcellus Daisy Girls Scouts Troop 352 learned about respect and authority last week from three individuals well versed in those areas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a martial arts master, a sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy and an officer with the New York Air National Guard. Master Todd Finney, who co-owns Agogi Mixed Martial Arts in Marcellus with Robert Webster, led the day of respect and authority on March 5, stressing to the daisies that everyone is deserving of respect. His lesson was mixed with martial arts demonstrations, where each of the daisies took turns kicking and punching padded targets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest thing is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nice to each other,â&#x20AC;? Finney told the daisies. He also told them about different figures of authority that should be respected, but not feared, before introducing two of note. Major Andrea Bastedo, a Cyber Communications Officer with the 152nd New York National Guard, spoke to the daisies about her line of work, leading them in a few different marches and salutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of all the salutes I can teach, and all the marching I can teach you, the best thing I can teach you is to be nice,â&#x20AC;? Bastedo said. Onondaga County Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputy Sean Clare spoke to the daisies about the tools holstered to his belt. Following an explanation of his taser, which he said he only uses when he absolutely has to, he removed a pencil from his front pocket and held it high. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I use this more than anything else on my belt,â&#x20AC;? Clare said. For paying close attention to the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lessons, all 12 Daisies were awarded their â&#x20AC;&#x153;respect and authorityâ&#x20AC;? petal. The event was coordinated by Kelly Amidon and scout leader Jenn Randal, whose daughters, both daisies, have taken martial arts at Agogi.

Westhill ousts Seton Catholic again, returns to state final four By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@eaglenewsonline.com If it’s March, then it must mean that the Westhill boys basketball team is relentlessly making its way toward a state Class B championship. Trying to repeat its 2010 glory, the Warriors assured itself of a return trip to the state final four in Glens Falls Saturday afternoon at Cicero-North Syracuse High School by performing well on both ends down the stretch to beat Section IV champion Seton Catholic 48-44. This was the same Binghamton school Westhill beat 12 months ago in this same regional round. But unlike that game, the Warriors didn’t face a halftime deficit, instead negating the Saints’ major inside advantage with tenacious defense and timely outside shooting. In all, the Warriors made eight 3-pointers, four of them from Kevin McAvoy, who followed up his 34-point eruption the Section III Class B final against Skaneateles by getting 16 points here - none bigger

than the two free throws with 15.4 seconds left that put Seton Catholic away. A bigger surprise was seeing Ryan Conroy step up to match McAvoy with 14 points, one of his highest totals of the season. Three times, Conroy connected on 3pointers, and it was his basket with 2:51 left that pushed the Warriors’ advantage to 46-42. Before all this, attention was centered on Seton Catholic’s big front line of 6-10 Bob Garbade and 6-7 Cole Smothers. Together, they were supposed to dominate in the paint and help the Saints gain payback for last year’s regional setback. Seton Catholic did lead most of the first quarter, but within a short amount of time Westhill’s perimeter defenders, including Conroy, Justin Biles, Nathan Nigolian and Mark McAnaney, began to deny the Saints entry passes inside. Meanwhile, Conroy’s pair of 3-pointers allowed the Warriors to catch up and, after a Nigolian three-point play early in the second period, Westhill led the rest of the half, expanding the margin to

25-19 when McAnaney connected beyond the arc early in the third quarter. Yet even as its defense continued to frustrate Seton Catholic, the Warriors could not pull clear through a second half where, once Seton Catholic caught up at 25-25, no one would pull away again. With less than five minutes left, the Saints inched ahead 42-40 on Tom Torto’s jumper, but Westhill quickly countered with six straight points to move ahead for good, capped by Conroy’s driving lay-up. Smothers’ jumper made it 46-44, and Seton Catholic got a chance to tie it in the final minute after Nigolian’s 3-pointer went in and out of the net. But John Martin missed a jumper - and McAvoy, after getting fouled, made the free throws that sent Westhill back to the final four. On Friday night at 8:30 at Glens Falls Civic Center, Westhill faces Burke Catholic (Section IX) in the state Class B semifinals. The winner returns on Saturday night at 9 p.m. to play Charlotte or Potsdam for the state championship.

WOYSA

Western Onondaga Youth Soccer Association My name is Roger Garcia and I am the president of WOYSA. I am making an appeal to the WOYSA community at large for volunteers to step up and take on the responsibility of running the day-to-day operations of WOYSA. I have announced my retirement to the Board of Directors. In addition I must also announce that the following positions will also be vacant very soon, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Registrar, Web Site Coordinator, Field and Resource Coordinator, Micro Soccer Division Director, U10 and U12 Boys Division Directors. This is very serious and without mincing words, if members from the WOYSA community do not step up to fill this void, we will be forced to make decisions that may include dissolving the league. That of course is a last resort but be clear; the league cannot effectively run without more help from the community. Most of the volunteers stepping down have been volunteering for 10 years or more with several over 15 years of community service. It is time for others to step-up. As the second most senior member I will agree to remain on the board as an advisor for a period of two years to help guide and train any new members who volunteer. With the current economic times it seems modified sports programs may suffer. WOYSA is the perfect vehicle to fill that void. However this will create the need for a U14 boys and girls Division Directors. This is something we want to do, but it requires two additional committed volunteers. This has been a very rewarding experience and all who serve will tell you the same. If anyone wishes to enquire please e-mail me at: rogerg@woysa.org Roger Garcia

Merle Builders combines Seneca Federal: Not an quality, experience average mortgage originator By Erin Wisneski

With 35 years in the home building and renovation business, Scott Merle, owner of Merle Builders, Inc. has the experience homeowners deserve whether looking for their first home or an upgrade that better fits the buyer’s lifestyle. Merle Builders offers clients custom-built homes, as well as moderately priced townhomes and patio homes. 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.

Simple spring cleaning Ten cheap, easy tips for the kitchen

You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even need to leave the house for supplies with these inexpensive spring cleaning tips. Just open your cabinet, make these homemade creations and clean beyond your counter tops and cupboards. Add these suggestions to your spring cleaning to-do list to eliminate odors, remove stains and get rid of food buildup in the kitchen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect your kitchen appliances during spring cleaning,â&#x20AC;? said Doug Rogers, president of Mr. Appliance Corp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your appliances never get a day off. They take the most abuse, yet probably get the least attention. Keep them clean to help them last longer and run more efficiently.â&#x20AC;? Give spring cleaning a new meaning with these 10 unique and often forgotten tips from Mr. ApplianceÂŽ and Mr. RooterÂŽ Plumbing: 1. To eliminate odors, pour vanilla extract into a bowl with a paper towel and wipe down the refrigerator walls. 2. Soak refrigerator removable parts in the sink with warm, soapy water to remove stains from food spills. 3. To remove food residue, run an empty dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar. 4. Take out oven racks and wash them by hand with warm soap and water to remove caked on food. 5. To eliminate odors, place handful of ice cubes and citrus peels in garbage disposal, turn on cold water and then the disposal for 15-30 seconds. After turning off disposal continue to rinse with hot water for 15 more seconds. 6. Wipe interior microwave surfaces with a mixture of two tablespoons baking soda and one quart water to remove food stains. 7. Use a sponge with a mixture of ½ cup bleach, Âź cup baking soda and four cups warm water to avoid yellowing of white appliances. Let it set for 10 minutes before rinsing and drying. 8. To remove grease buildup from garbage disposal, turn on hot water, then disposal. Squeeze tablespoon of dishwashing liquid in disposal, and run hot water for 15-30 seconds.

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 impor-

tant 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. To sign up for a free one-day Lead Safe Work Practices training, call the Lead Poisoning Control Program at 435-3271.

West Genny’s Leff wins national freshman mile By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@eaglenewsonline.com Further confirming her elite status, West Genesee ninth-grader Laura Leff can now call herself a national champion. Leff achieved this status, the first in the track program’s history, by winning the Freshman Mile Saturday at the New Balance Indoor National Championships held at the Armory Track & Field Center in New York City. Amid a field of 27 runners that traveled from as far as New Mexico to participate in the race, Leff lagged far behind Michigan’s Kelsie Schwartz early in the race, but gradually decreased the margin as the laps wore on. Then, on the final lap, Leff zoomed past Schwartz and hit the finish line in five minutes, 2.16 seconds, the fastest time this season by any freshman in the country. Schwartz was second in 5:04.97, 2.81 seconds behind. Leff also was 31st in Sunday’s 800-meter run in 2:18.72. Billy Gabriel, fresh off winning the state indoor championship in the 1,600-meter run at Cornell University a week earlier, could not repeat that magic here, settling for a time of 4:40.87 in the mile. Gabriel, John DeLallo, Matt Byrnes and Ethan Osborne were 18th in the 4x1,600 relay in 18:23.49. Marcellus’ Jesse Garn, the state champion in the 1,000, landed in eighth place in the 800-meter final in 1:53.15, while DeLallo was 45th (2:01.31), both of them behind Liverpool’s Zavon Watkins, who avenged his loss to Garn in the state meet by winning here in 1:50.84.

The initiative is being funded by a Fire Prevention and Safety grant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delivering and installing smoke alarms will add to the health and safety of our community,â&#x20AC;? said Mahoney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Onondaga County is very pleased to be one of only 12 counties in New York State selected for this grantâ&#x20AC;?. Joe Rinefierd, Director of the Onondaga County Department of Emergency Management Fire Bureau, said that having properly working smoke alarms in your home reduces the chances of fire-related deaths significantly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Approximately 70 percent of residential fire deaths are caused due to homes not having smoke alarms or due to smoke

alarms not working properly,â&#x20AC;? Rinefierd said. Through this program, firefighters from various fire departments will provide education, smoke alarms and installation free of charge to those that qualify. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Residential fires often affect our most vulnerable citizens, including children 14 and younger and adults over age 65, â&#x20AC;? said Steve Cavuto, Deputy Chief for the Syracuse Fire Department. The Smoke Alarm Installation Program is for Onondaga County residents who live with children 14 years old and younger; are 65 years old and above; are at a low income level (call for details); or are hearing impaired (special detectors are available). To learn more about this program or to schedule a home visit, call 448-4777 (City of Syracuse residents) or 435-2525 (Noncity residents).

nomical,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. At the last second, Kirk came to village officials with an offer. For the village to tear it down wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been complicated and expensive; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attached to the building next door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would have cost the village probably two or three hundred thousand dollars,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To make a long story short, I basically got a hell of a deal on the building.â&#x20AC;? Kirk said he bought the building first and then figured out what he wanted to do with it. So why open a smokinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; barbecue? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well you have to do something with the building, and in the village of Camillus, sales are tough â&#x20AC;Ś you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just open up a building in the village and rent it out to letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say, a grocery store,â&#x20AC;? he said. A smokinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; barbecue in Camillus, complete with NFL packages and busts of animals Kirk hunted himself in Wyoming, turned out to be a great idea with a clear niche. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bar,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to sell to women.â&#x20AC;? Kirk said sales have doubled in the last two weeks. On Friday and Saturday nights itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been standing room only. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All those tables downstairs are filled up, which is great, and we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even advertised,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we advertised we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it, people would be walking out the door.â&#x20AC;? Which is why he hopes to get the second floor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; host to 20 to 30 tables, a dance floor and a space for bands to perform â&#x20AC;&#x201D; open within two weeks. Kirk also bought the property next door, 57 Main St., which will hold around 25 tables, and in the summertime the newly constructed back porch will offer even more dining space â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and live music. Krabby Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saloon has been catching the eye of villagers and passers by since the storefront was renovated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebuilt but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to the original tone of the building from 1890, and we were subject to that with the Restore NY grant,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. Kirk said village Mayor Michael Montero, who owns the String Corner at 69 Main St., worked with him to secure grant funding for the restoration of 55 Main St. Village officials continue to assist Kirk in securing community development grants for other projects in the village. In addition to 55 and 57 Main St., Kirk has purchased 74 and 75 Main Street with plans to renovate both. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I get done, the fronts of the other buildings will look like something out of the 1800s,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kirk said village codes officer John Williams has been helped him keep everything in compliance. Montero, Williams and all the village trustees â&#x20AC;&#x153;have bent over backwardsâ&#x20AC;? to get this project going, he said. Kirk has owned apartments in the village of Camillus for years, but this is his first restaurant. He said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done it without the help of his friends in the restaurant business â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially Tom Mafrici, owner of Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Plank Road CafĂŠ in Cicero, who has been a mentor for him throughout the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known Tom for years, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helped me out,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into this business blind. You have to have somebody to guide you through it.â&#x20AC;?

NED CAMPBELL

John Kenny, the head chef at Krabby Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saloon in Camillus, stands in front of the saloonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smoker, which he says can cook 85 racks of rib at a time, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;250 pounds of different meats.â&#x20AC;? The smoker is cherry wood fired. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the menu, and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind it Kirk compared the style of his restaurant to that of Dinosaur Barbecue in Syracuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything we serve here we make â&#x20AC;Ś and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why our food business has taken right off,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. That includes the ribs, corned beef, pastrami, baked beans, and all the rubs and sauces. Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just that the food is made on site, but how it gets prepared â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the kitchen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We smoke all our own meats, including brisket corn beef and pastrami,â&#x20AC;? said head chef John Kenny. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anyone who makes their own pastrami, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of unique,â&#x20AC;? Kenny added. Like Kirk, Kenny grew up in Camillus, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traveled all over the world as a chef since graduating from the Culinary Institute of America. In his 30 years of experience heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prepared food in New Orleans, Florida and Hawaii among other places. The menu at Krabby Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is informed by his travels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aiming for is the southern style barbecue, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken a little bit from different barbecues,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memphis, some of itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kansas City. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty good influence from the south, cause thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I felt more comfortable.â&#x20AC;? Kenny said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partial to the Texas brisket, which gets smoked for 12 to 14 hours. The customers are showing their approval by coming back for more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People love it, they really do,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not just blowing smoke, either. People really love the food.â&#x20AC;? Kenny has help from sous chef Allan Watson, who heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked with for around 7 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a young guy,â&#x20AC;? Kenny said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kind of brought him along.â&#x20AC;? Kenny got paired up with Kirk when a mutual friend thought theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make a great team. So far, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a successful partnership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be honest with you, I think working with Dick and working in this environment has kind of refueled my passion for cooking that I probably havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had for a few years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I give a lot of credit to Dick and [his wife] Mary for pretty much letting me do my thing and what I do best â&#x20AC;&#x201D; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very supportive about it.â&#x20AC;? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on tap Krabby Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has 12 different beers on tap â&#x20AC;&#x201D; everything from Pabst Blue Ribbon to the more expensive Caged

Alpha Monkey, an American East Coast IPA brewed in Honeoye Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 140 dollars a keg, and it turned out to be our best-seller, which shocked me,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more expensive than Guinness. Of course, we still have Guinness.â&#x20AC;? Kirk is proud to serve the beer out of a state of the art cooling system installed by Onondaga Beverage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I say state of the art, our beer is cooled out of the cooler at 29 degrees,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you grab that glass, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold, I mean really cold,â&#x20AC;? which does two things, Kirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It eliminates bacteria in the line and it gives you a heck of a cold beer. When we have our lines cleaned, which is about every 2 weeks, the guy coming in, he wonders why we ever call him.â&#x20AC;? What brought him into town Kirk lives in Skaneateles, but he grew up in Camillus, and has had family in Camillus going back to 1840. His grandfather, William Kirk, was the mayor of Syracuse in 1880. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was a kid the village was a viable place, had a lot of nice businesses down here,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice place, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been going downhill ever since. So for me it was just a way I could put some money back into the community and maybe make it like it was yeas ago. And I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna happen.â&#x20AC;? In the fall, Kirk acquired a permit to install a 3 by 7 foot programmable LED sign, which he plans to put on the side of 75 Main and use to advertise the saloon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let the village use that sign for their functions, and anyone that lives in the village, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let them use it too,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kirk said according to numbers provided by Onondaga County, 10,000 cars come down that hill into the village every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So when I put that sign up, 10,000 people a day will see that sign,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the best advertising we could ever have. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on a heavily traveled road, we might as well utilize it.â&#x20AC;? Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saloon is opening in a village that already has a few pubs in McNamaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Greengate Inn and the Camillus Grill. He said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not his intention to run them out of business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna make the place a destination, just like downtown,â&#x20AC;? Kirk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you get a whole bunch of businesses here, people are gonna come into the village in the summertime just to walk around.â&#x20AC;?

Vintage film fans fill local hotels this weekend Every year as the spring equinox rolls around, the Syracuse Cinephile Society rolls its projectors over to the Holiday Inn on Electronics Parkway where nearly 500 vintage film fans from all over the world turn out for its annual Cinefest. While the classic movie buffs get their fill of forgotten film stars such as Zasu Pitts, DeWolf Hopper and Gilda Gray, local hoteliers and restaurateurs fill their cash registers with boffo bucks.

Famished film fans Cinefest attendees regularly patronize Liverpool restaurants such as The Retreat, the Gardenview Diner and Santangeloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. A few â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the knowâ&#x20AC;? globetrotters even stand in line at Heidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for franks and coneys. And since the Holiday Inn is already filled up with 350 or so preregistered Cinefesters, the other 150 or so who turn out this Thursday will sack out at other area motels on Electronic Parkway or Buckley Road and 7th North Street. The Syracuse Convention and Visitors Bureau applies a formula used by the International Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus which estimates that those who attend such events spend an average of $231 per day in the area.

If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anywhere near accurate, the Cinefest should generate more than $450,000. Next time some party pooper tries to tell you that the arts arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worthy of government and corporate support, drop that persuasive factoid into the conversation. Silents and talkies Founded in 1980 by the late Phil Serling, Cinefest is now into its third decade here. Cinefest 31 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which runs from 9 a.m. Thursday, March 17 through 5 p.m. Sunday, March 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will screen silent films such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music in the Airâ&#x20AC;? starring Gloria Swanson and â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Price Gloryâ&#x20AC;? starring Victor McLaglen. Many of the silents will be accompanied by pianists just as they were in presound theaters. Besides the dialogue-less oldies, Cinefest 31 will screen early talkies like 1941â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hellzapoppinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? with Martha Raye, 1931â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alice in Wonderlandâ&#x20AC;? with Ruth Gilbert and 1932â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Phantom Presidentâ&#x20AC;? with George M. Cohan. Several of the scheduled flicks give viewers a chance to see big stars early in their careers. For instance, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music in the Airâ&#x20AC;? is a 1927 silent starring Gloria Swanson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wolf

Songâ&#x20AC;? is a 1929 talkie featuring a young Gary Cooper, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fall Guyâ&#x20AC;? stars Oliver Hardy before he partnered full-time with Stan Laurel.

Scandalous â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Temple Drakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

On Saturday, March 19, the film fanatics will bus over to Eastwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Palace Theater for a showing of six 35mm films including 1933â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Story of Temple Drakeâ&#x20AC;? starring Miraiam Hopkins and 1923â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jazzmania.â&#x20AC;? Despite its title, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jazzmaniaâ&#x20AC;? has almost nothing to do with jazz â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silent! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it does feature Mae Murray sporting some of the most provocative attire worn by an actress in film up to that time. If you had to pick only one of Cinefest 31â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-dozen films to see, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be wise to choose the scandalous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Temple Drakeâ&#x20AC;? at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Palace. The PreCode movie focuses on a flirtatious Southern belle whose outrageous behavior gets her in Dutch with a band of bootleggers. Based on William Faulknerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sanctuary,â&#x20AC;? the film directed by Stephen Roberts features one of Miriam Hopkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most memorable roles as it builds to a breathless climax. Admission to the Palace program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which begins at 8:30 a.m. and lasts until late-afternoon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; costs $25. Registration for all four days of Cinefest 31 costs $75, or $25 per day; syracusecinefest.com.

core. It would not be until July 1982 when the true danger of the crisis would be revealed. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the site became cool enough for a remote camera to be dipped into the nuclear core. The camera showed a full five feet of the fuel rods had burned. Roger Mattson, NRC Senior Engineer at the time, said of the accident, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a meltdown at Three Mile Islandâ&#x20AC;Ś Fifty percent of the core was destroyed or molten and something on the order of 20 tons of uranium found its way, by flowing in a molten state, to the bottom head of the pressure vessel. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a core melt-down. No question about it.â&#x20AC;? By that time, I was working in another job, and gratefully another state.

age for our publications. Some slept in their cars. I took refuge at a friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment. On April 1, Roman Catholic priests granted general absolution during Sunday mass. It was a rite usually restricted to war or other circumstances when it might be impossible for people to make confessions to priests. Area hospitals announced they would accept only emergency admissions, to clear beds in the event an evacuation is required. Three days later, Thornburgh went on TV and announced the crisis was over. An uneasy calm settled in quickly and the real questioning started into what happened. The problem, it turned out was a faulty valve which triggered misleading readings and resulted in a partial meltdown of the nuclear

ers, camera people, sound technicians and the like converged on the site. Within hours it became clear that no one in authority had a grip on what was going on inside the plant. Industry officials moved from a public position of â&#x20AC;&#x153;no problemâ&#x20AC;? to a minor problem that prompted a shutdown. No one believed the officials including the Republican governor of the state, Dick Thornburgh. He sought, and received, help from President Jimmy Carter. Those living around the area were put on notice that an evacuation might be necessary; people living nearby, especially pregnant women, were told to stay indoors. By the third day of misinformation and hysterical reports, an estimated one-quarter of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 950,000 residents packed up what they could transport, withdew their savings from banks and fled the area. Rumors and rumors of rumors reverberated through the hundreds of news people who poured into the area, which prompted network TV types to be evacuated by helicopter because of fears the plant was about to explode. The foot soldiers, such as myself, slogged it out daily, working 18 to 20 hours a day churning out minute-to-minute cover-



The presence of the trooper, however, was a tip-off that news was about to be made. I drove to the TMI Welcome Center a short distance away and called my office, leaving word for someone to call Metropolitan Edison and get the story. I figured I was done with it. Retracing the route took me past the TMI gate again. Carloads of people were being driven off the island. It looked pretty much like an evacuation to me. I parked the car out of the troopersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vision and my colleague and I and scooted down a bank from which we could observe the island. With an almost whispered, kind of whooshing sound a wisp of white rose skyward from what we were to learn was the containment building. The steam contained radiation spewed into the containment by a runaway nuclear reactor. There was an effort underway to relieve built-up pressure in the structure to prevent an explosion, I learned later. I headed for the Welcome Center pay phone, again. This was awfully wrong and I needed to get outside help to figure out what was going on. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only newsman on the case, it turned out. Ten minutes later, the TMI juggernaut was on. A clog of TV vans and multiples of other report-
