By Ellen Leahy Former Skaneateles mayor, chairman of the county Legislature and local resident Jim Rhinehart attended the Skaneateles Town B o ard me et ing Thursday Feb. 3. After the town board efficiently worked through its agenda, Rhinehart took the floor from his seat. He opened by noting that he had often heard people at the Skaneateles Transfer Station (the dump) complaining about the $20 -a-year usage fee. He said that in his travels around the county he’s noted that people pay a lot more for far less convenient service in other towns. Meaning, county residents experience long waits and added

That’s both the town’s and county’s share. “The rest of the county didn’t fair as well,” he said. “I wanted to thank you and tell you (the board) that your hard work is reflected in the tax bill - it really doesn’t happen that often. It brings back people’s confidence in government.” In closing he told the board, “I’m impressed with how fast you run your meetings.” And, he encouraged the board to keep looking at all the options (cost savings). “That is just good governance,” he said.

Guest commentary What a treat it is for the residents of Skaneateles to have the Laker Limo! By Mary Kate Shane Last month when I worried about driving my husband, Cliff, to a needed medical appointment at Crouse, our doctor said, “Didn’t I help you raise money when the Limo first started?” Of course, Mary Kate! This is the purpose of the Limo! We were picked up by George Newton, the driver, and Noel Gettman, the escort, for a pleasant ride to Syracuse in the 2009 Dodge Caravan. Returning, we picked up another Skaneateles resident they had driven to Fairmount earlier in the day. The 70 volunteers are usually on duty only once a month and are eager to have their day filled. They take refresher courses annually in preparation for their assignments. This service was dreamed up in 2002 by Joyce Edwards and Sue Moran, then chairpersons of FISH. They saw a need for transportation to Syracuse as well as Auburn for seniors and disabled people. Although we met with the Onondaga County Office for Aging and a representative of the New York State Department of Transportation, there was no funding available at that time. So the fundraising began, which resulted in the purchase of a ten-passenger van with two wheelchairs. That vehicle will soon be replaced by a 2012, ten-passenger (Two wheel chair) shuttle bus. The 2009 Dodge Caravan will be used for smaller numbers of riders. Now the Laker Limo operates in cooperation with the town of Skaneateles and is a member of the Metropolitan Transportation Council of Onondaga County. It’s so easy to schedule a ride. Just call 6853030 at least two days ahead, leave your name and number, and the scheduler will return your call. For those riders interested in contributing to their trip, the suggested fee is $2 for trips in Skaneateles, $3 to Auburn, and $5 to Syracuse. It is free for the economically challenged.

Turns out, it was just more TV hype I have been criticized that no one is interested in all my machinations about furnaces, etc. last week. I have been instructed to stick with people and animals. Oh well, a few people liked it. I misdialed a number which I do from time to time as my fingers are fat and the keyboard is tight and very sensitive. Instead of “six” I dialed a “five” and left a message. A short time later a charming lady called back to tell me that my intended message was on her machine. It turns out that she was a reader of my column and a graduate engineer and she said she really enjoyed the column about furnaces. We had a nice discussion about C.AC (constant air circulation) for furnace control setup. We were about to move into the machinations of the outdrive on the “Samuel Clyde,” my canal cruiser, when it was time for her to fetch the children from school. I thought that Mr. Lemon’s picture looked really nice in the paper last week. It had a yellow cast as it was taken in the evening under indoor light. It seems as if the new cameras can take pictures inside a pocket. I took pictures in the Vatican Museum which showed a red color I could not see in the wall hangings and with my own eyes. I’m writing this on Tuesday afternoon and everyone is worried about the “Big Snow.” I don’t think any of us will ever see a snow like 1966. We had a heavy snow Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, and then a strong northeast wind brought in the cold and drifted the snow into hard-packed drifts which were very hard to get around. One of the big County Oshkosh snowfighter V. plows broke down at the village line on Route 41and stayed there until Wednesday. Tuesday afternoon the roads were sort of open and you could sneak around and see the sights. Late in the day Hurley Van Holtz, a mainstay of the John Dougherty Company, arrived with a D6 CAT bulldozer and punched out our fire lane D (now known as Day Lane). He had been in the saddle for about 12 hours when he got here and was going to keep going until it got too dark. Snow removal has gotten better as new pickup trucks, plows, drives and transmis-

sions have been improved. They are a far cry from Ted Chappell’s Jeep. Ted took good care of us on Fire Lane D for many years and had friends who could get us out if his vehicle was overpowered. Tom Greenfield is our plow guy at Fire Lane 17 and much of Westlake Road. He is backed up with a big blue tractor with a blade and a “gygundous” snowblower mounted on an equally large tractor to cut back the snow piles if winter lingers too long or the drifts get too big in one of the “snow events.” The continuous “two to five” every day or two are sure a nuisance. You just can’t ignore them and drive on it because it will create an icy base on our quarter mile uphill driveway which is okay until the first rain. Wet ice is almost impossible to deal with. We are usually trapped until we get sanded or the ice melts or softens enough to get some traction. Living down the lane is terrific if you can roll with the conditions. You need a good vehicle with the right tires and equipment. A set of chains will offer a last-ditch solution. My dad, Sam Spalding, always had a set of chains for each car. When we got a new car it was a ritual in October to adjust the chains to the new car. I have a tool to replace cross-links when they wear out. When I built my house the winter of 1997 my son Bill’s brother-in-law borrowed my chains to get his van in and out. They really work. I’ve always been rather put off when you rent a car in Denver, Colorado or Jackson, Wyoming. They don’t have good winter tires and no chains available. The interstates in a whole out west are often closed to cars and trucks without chains for major storms. By the time you read this you will know if we got “Big Snow” or if it was just TV hype. Joe Spalding makes his home with Sue and their beagle Mr. Lemon on the western shore of Skaneateles Lake. reach Joe through the Press at editor@skaneatelespress.com or his # is in the book.

Opinion Guest commentary

A Skaneateles – Marcellus School district anyone? The Skaneateles and Marcellus High Schools would continue to operate independently with separate activities and athletics, except, of course, where it may make sense to combine – for example, football. (As an aside, think how thrilled the Marcellus players would be to have a coach who played in the NFL, and how pleased the Skaneateles players would be to have enough players to field a decent size team). A good example of where this works is the Pittsford School District in Pittsford, NY. Pittsford is a community about the combined size of Skaneateles and Marcellus. The district has two high schools which operate independently, Pittsford Mendon and Pittsford Sutherland, each with separate campuses, identities, activities, teams (except where it made sense to combine; football, for instance) and traditions. Some teachers and resources are shared between the high schools. There is also a competitiveness that exists between the schools which helps promote better performance by teachers, coaches and students. Imagine the amount of “efficiencies” resulting from a consolidation with Marcellus at all levels – administration, programs, technology, transportation, communications, resources etc. Second, negotiate a more equitable contract with the unions representing all district employees. Savings can be found through efficiencies and other creative maneuvering, but with 75 percent of all local education budgets

‘The King’s Speech’ ... inspiring cinema By Phil Blackwell Late in the year, it always happens. A film, made in Britain, finds its way across the Atlantic, delights the critics in the big cities, snags all sorts of trophies at awards time, then makes way for the next UK import late the next year, rinse and repeat. So it was late in 2010 as word of a film called The King’s Speech filtered here. Period piece, royalty, fine English actors doing their English best….not exactly something that rouses the general public all too eager to slide from one mind-numbing Hollywood blockbuster to another. But then the particulars of the film emerged, arousing curiosity. At the same time came word of audiences laughing, crying and applauding when it was done, signs that they were emotionally involved in the story, which is something peculiar to movie experiences on our shores. Finally, I could not avoid the persistent drumbeat and had to see The King’s Speech. And within five minutes, I was enthralled, drawn into a story of shame, duty, classconsciousness, friendship, honor and courage that soars way beyond normal cinema. It is, of course, the tale of Prince Albert, the Duke of York, paralyzed by a severe stammer, which is a big problem in the burgeoning age of communication (radio at that time). With the help of a peculiar speech therapist, he finds his voice and, thrust by fate onto the throne as King George VI, he rallies the British Empire as World War II breaks out. Hardly anyone now remembers that the father of Queen Elizabeth stuttered. However, David Siedler, a Brit See King’s Speech, page 9

going to pay for district salaries and benefits, that is the area where real savings exists. While the private sector was able to eliminate salary increases and reduce benefits to cope with the recession, district employees continued to enjoy annual wage and benefit increases that far outpaced local private sector increases, inflation and the consumer price index. Negotiating a union contract will not be easy. The response you will get is that the unions don’t have to negotiate. The Triborough Agreement essentially allows the union negotiators to do nothing until they get what they want, continuing to operate under the existing contract. Unfortunately, that will mean more lay-offs and less programming. I know many in the community will not be in favor of district consolidation (combine with Marcellus –NEVER!!!). No one likes to give up local control and, candidly, all things being equal, I feel the same way. However, the question we need to ask ourselves is: at what point are the costs simply too high, and the cuts impacting the quality of our children’s education just too great? P.S. Did I mention I’d add the Jordan-Elbridge School District into the consolidation equation as well? It appears they could use someone with the leadership capabilities and talents of a Phil D’Angelo. How does the Skanjellus School District sound?

08569

This is in response to the recent guest column written by Evan Dreyfuss, Skaneateles School Board President, in which he outlined the difficult school budget picture and asked for community input. Let me begin by saying I appreciate the dedication and hard work of our school board members and I don’t envy the challenge they face in addressing proposed budget cuts. I also applaud their efforts to minimize the impact any reductions in the school budget will have on our children’s education. Having said that, I think the school board should address the “elephant in the room” which has the potential to reduce costs significantly, while impacting our student’s education the least – i.e. school district consolidation. Governor Cuomo stated last week that our taxes are 66 percent higher than the national average. He added that from 1994-2009, inflation was about 2.7 percent per year, personal income growth was 3.8 percent, but education expense went up over 6 percent. New York is number one in education funding. Governor Cuomo has included in his budget $250 million in competitive grant monies for school administrative efficiency for school districts that can find savings through efficiencies, shared services and consolidation. Rather than weaken our school’s “programming, athletic, special education, professional development and enrichment areas,” why not cut costs where substantial

savings can be garnered with the least direct negative impact on our children’s education, and have the state pay for it? The savings could be in the millions of dollars! It is almost a certainty that the wealthiest school districts will bear more of the cost burden in coming years, as money is shifted to poorer districts in the state. Plus, the recent passage of a property tax cap by the NY State Senate signals that even tougher times are ahead, even if the cap does not eventually become law. A high-achieving school system does attract families, which helps maintain real estate values. However, if families are priced out of the market due to high taxes, you can have the best school system in the world, but no one to teach. Simply look at the student enrollment trends in our two elementary schools over the past several years. Families are moving to communities with lower taxes and where there are jobs. I recommend our school board enter into merger discussions with their counterparts in the Marcellus School District. This is not meant to reflect on the level of competence of Superintendent Phil D’Angelo or the quality of his staff. Phil is a talented professional, who could easily oversee a much larger district. Maybe in prior decades it was necessary to have a superintendent in close proximity to all direct reports, but with the advances in technology and communication, proximity is no longer essential. I am not proposing the closure of schools.

Schools Library art 

From page1

This is actually the first exhibit of its kind in the library, and was the brain child of librarian, Jennifer Dembs who thought it might brighten up the library especially during the winter doldrums. And she was right, as the artwork is bright and cheery and it drew a crowd to the library for the opening that was quite exciting. Students interpreted many celebrated artists in their classes such as Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher

and American Folk Artist Laurel Burch. “It is exciting,” said former teacher, turned librarian Nancy Graham, who is in charge of ordering the children’s books for the Library. The new student’s artwork will be on display throughout the month of February. “These are truly delightful pieces and are really adding some cheer here,” Library Director Kathy Mosher said.

Clockwise from top left is Jack Carlile’s take on M.C. Escher; then it’s Jack himself; students and their parents mingled among the stacks munching on cookies and enjoying the art exhibition; these silver and black etchings were exhibited on one of the library’s mantles. Teacher Sue Barry said students first drew the picture and then scratched its imagine out of the black revealing the silver below. From left these works are by Kyra LoPiccolo, Will Congel and Lilly Datz; This is Kyra Lo Piccolo’s original drawing. To see these and all the works of art in color, please visit the library during the month of February.

Business Sherwood Inn chimney hosts fire

In brief Four diamonds awarded

By Ellen Leahy There was a chimney fire on the eastern end of the historic Sherwood Inn Thurday Feb. 3. Smoke billowing out of the fireplace in the Sherwood’s tavern alerted the Inn’s staff to make the call into the Skaneateles Fire Department. Fire companies from Skaneateles, Mottville, Amber, Howlett Hill, Marcellus, Elbridge, Navarino and Cayuga County responded, as well as SAVES. When the first fire company arrived there were flames coming out of the chimney. Using Skaneateles and Mottville ladder trucks, the fire was quickly extinguished, but it was determined that the top of the chimney was unstable. The firefighters dismantled the top, so it would not fall the three stories to the driveway off the eastern end of the building into the Sherwood’s parking lot. No one was injured during the incident. Sherwood Inn manager Meredith Eberhardt said the chimney had been cleaned within the last 45 days. The original Inn was constructed in 1807 with several incarnations, that chimney was added during a tavern’s renovations six years ago.

After the emergency, Skaneateles Volunteer Fire Department’s FIre Chief, Eric Sells (top) answers questions for local broadcast media in town for the fire. The Sherwood closed its classic tavern for the evening, but remained in full operation, opening its west porch bar and serving meals in the dining rooms on the west of the building and the front porch. The oil painting behind the bar, above, was removed the next day for cleaning. Meanwhile, local professional phootgrapher, John Francis McCarthy came to the resuce with a landscape of the lake to take the painting place during restoration.

Lakers boys basketball fight off Westhill, tighten grip on first place ... By Phil Blackwell Name the setting - familiar or hostile. And name the circumstance - comfortable or nervous. Every time, it seems like the Skaneateles boys basketball team has the right answer, and keeps on winning. The Lakers’ hold on first place in the OHSL Liberty division only grew stronger Thursday night when it went to second-place Westhill and, with early domination and late poise, beat the defending state Class B champion Warriors 73-64 to complete a regular-season sweep and earn its 12th consecutive victory. Even as senior center Pat Roberts sat out most of the second half with foul trouble, and even as Westhill whittled a 14-point deficit down to four, the Lakers kept calm, which, according to head coach Karl Norris, was quite a statement in itself. “This win says a lot about us,” said Norris. “We did not play great early in the second half, but we battled through. And we played well defensively down the stretch.” For the first time this year, the Lakers are in the state Class B rankings - no. 18, to be exact. Yet it knew that the rematch with Wes-

thill, a team it thrashed 7549 back on Dec. 17, would prove a lot tougher on the Warriors’ home court - especially since Westhill had won eight straight league games, and 9 out of 10 overall, since that first encounter. With that knowledge, Skaneateles played a strong first half. Tight man-toman defense forced the Warriors into all kinds of bad shots, and the hosts didn’t get a field goal until the game was more than four minutes old. Meanwhile, a threepronged Laker attack confounded the Warriors’ usually stout defense. Roberts controlled the paint for 10 first-half points as Paul O’Donnell hit three 3pointers on his way to 11 points for the half. Brandon Barron chimed in with nine points, including a 21-footer at the first-period buzzer that made it 14-5. Three different times, Skaneateles led by as much as 16 points, only to see Westhill close to 34-22 by halftime, then gain even more hope when Roberts went to the bench with three fouls early in the third quarter. Again, the Lakers tried to pull away, the lead growing to 48-34. Again, the Warriors struck back, helped by Roberts’ fourth

They traded baskets until, at 54-50, O’Donnell came up with a critical three-point play. Then Kevin Rice, quiet on the offensive side much of the

night, sank a pair of free throws and, with three minutes left, rattled home a 3-pointer that stretched the margin back to double digits, 62-52. Westhill never got close again. Rice finished with 17 points, 11 of them in the fourth quarter alone. “Kevin is a big-time player,” said Norris. “He rises to the oc-

casion every time.” O’Donnell also finished with 17 points, while Barron picked up 15 points before fouling out. On Westhill’s side, Kevin McAvoy led with 18 points as Nathan Nigolian got 15 points, Meluni 13 points and Justin Biles 10 points. Skaneateles had no time to savor the win, for it had

to visit Hannibal 24 hours later. But that turned into a 67-27 romp as Barron, with 15 points, led four players in double figures. Roberts had 12 points, with Jimmy Atkinson adding 11 points and Rice getting 10 points.

KEEP COOL: Skaneateles guard Kevin Rice dribbles past Westhill’s Geno Sgroi in last Thursday’s game. Rice had 17 points, 11 of them in the quarter, as the Lakers beat the Warriors 73-64.

Only a couple of more wins are required for the Skaneateles girls basketball team to earn a spot in the Section III Class B playoffs. With every outcome important, the Lakers hosted Hannibal last Friday night and improved its mark to 6-8 (5-7 league) with a 43-41 win over the Warriors. Having not played in a week, the Lakers did not show too much rust in a closely played first half, only trailing 21-19 going into the break. Then Skaneateles caught up, 31-31,

going to the fourth quarter, and during a tense late exchange inched out in front and would hang on. Ashley Sheldon led the Lakers with 14 points, one of her best efforts of the season. Emily Call had 10 points, while Elizabeth Lane threw in nine points. Hannibal got most of its offense from Taylor Sorrell, who had 15 points (all from five 3-pointers), and Allie Taylor, who added 13 points. Skaneateles has four games left, including this Friday’s home contest against Solvay, to get the wins necessary to return to the post-season.

Hockey takes back-to-back defeats By Phil Blackwell At just the wrong time, the Skaneateles ice hockey team saw its offense go into a prolonged drought over the first weekend of February. It began last Friday night, at Allyn Arena, as the Lakers took on Clinton and saw its chance to move up the Division II standings slip away in a frustrating 1-0 defeat to the Warriors. Skaneateles had lost the first encounter with the

Warriors 3-2 back on Jan. 4 at Clinton Arena. Exactly a month later, the rematch proved just as close, with even more defense to showcase. Through a scoreless first period, neither side budged. Then, in the second period, Clinton’s Peter Hameline took a pass from Tucker Franz and pushed the puck past Trevor Diamond to put the visitors in front. Diamond turned away everything else and finished with 27 saves. But his Laker

teammates did not decrease the pressure, managing just 13 shots all night, with Clinton goalie Cory Harris turning them all away for the shutout. This bad feeling lingered into Saturday’s trip to Canandaigua, where the Lakers lost 3-0 to the Braves, again unable to put it in the net in 22 shots against Braves goalie Max Lucchesi. Canandaigua’s Mark Greer scored once in the first period, then twice

more in the third period to earn a hat trick and personally negate Diamond’s 25 saves. Skaneateles (10-6-1, 75-1 league) still has three games left in the regular season, against New Hartford, Auburn and Oswego, with only Saturday’s clash with the Buccaneers at home as the Lakers have clinched a Division II playoff spot.

55 trap shooters on the range for week 5 On Saturday, Jan. 29, at 0900, five riflemen met at our range to fire our regular weekly high power match. The temperature was 24 degrees, the clouds were broken, and the wind was calm. Everyone fired the A Course of the John C. Garand Match as fired at Camp Perry at the National Shooting Matches. Dave Spearing won the match with his Russian Mosin, model 91/30 of 1934, in 7.62X54R mm caliber and hitting 88-1X+871X+87=262-2X’s. He would have won a bronze medal at Camp Perry and we all congratulate him. Ron Troch fired his Lee-Enfield in .303 British caliber, and hit 931X+90+74=257-1X. Chuck Chernoff fired his Springfield made 1998 .30-40 Krag-Jorgensen and hit 911X+90-1X+72=253-2X’s. Paul Straka fired his Smith-Corona made ’03-A3 and hit 91+92+62=245. I fired my

Remington made ’03-A3 and hit 933X’s+73+71=237-3X’s. Four of us went to the fine Willow Glen CafÊ for beverages after the match. Aryana poured and Chernoff paid. We all thank them both. On Sunday morning, Jan. 30, an estimated fifty-five trap shooters, including three ladies and three each of juniors, and sub-juniors, fired the 5th week of the 10 week winter league. During the shoot, there was a light snow falling and the tempera-

ture was 20 degrees. Dave Bean won the match with a perfect 25. 23’s were fired by Ron Roberts and Greg Martin. The three ladies were led by Nikki Hai with 18 hits. The juniors were led by Brandon Murray with 14, and the sub-juniors were led by Patrick Greenfield with 20. Congratulations to you all. Tuesday night, Feb. 1, six hand gun shooters fired the 18th shoot of the winter league. There were no center fire shooters. Chuck Chernoff won the match with a rim fire score of 263-2X’s. Dick Bailer hit 238 and Paul Straka got 220. Stuart Cook shot two handed rim fire and got 221-6X’s. Congratulations to you all. Shoot safely.

King’s Speech  who moved to the United States as a boy, considered George VI a hero because he, too, fought a stammer until his teen years. Siedler wrote the script for The King’s Speech decades ago, but waited until George VI’s wife, known to us as the Queen Mother, died before making an effort to bring it to the screen. In time, he found an able director, Tom Hooper, who did the terrific “John Adams� miniseries for HBO. Here is where the brilliance starts. Hooper deliberately de-emphasizes the grandeur of the royal family. Most of the scenes are shot in simple rooms and corridors, with minute attention to 1930s detail that adds to the story’s authentic impact. Without the unnecessary glitz, it allows for the human elements of the story to shine – especially the bond formed between the monarch and Lionel Logue, the failed Australian actor reduced to speech coaching to make end’s meet for his family. They start with mutual



Skaneateles Press, Feb. 9, 2011

From page 5 suspicion and, for a while, cannot make it past the vast difference in their social status. Yet they turn into friends, finding strength in each other through hard work and lots of good humor. Oh yeah, and while this is going on things are falling apart, both in the House of Windsor and the world at large. From Edward VIII’s abdication to marry the twice-divorced Wallis Simpson to the looming shadow of war, things conspire to force George VI into a role he never wanted for himself, but must face with uncommon heroism. Everyone in the cast sparkles. Michael Gambon (as Bertie’s father, King George V) and Guy Pearce (as the shallow Edward), in their brief time on screen, richly portray the root causes of George’s humiliation and shame. Helena Bonham Carter is a fetching and charming presence as the future Queen Mum. Geoffrey Rush glows as Logue, every bit the equal to his royal patient as he works

his odd magic on Bertie. This brings us to Colin Firth. All the other fine elements of the film would not matter one whit if Firth, playing George VI, does not give one of the most resonant performances in recent movie history, making him all but a lock for the Best Actor Oscar. All who go through it say that stammering is a nightmare that makes any social setting a potential disaster. It’s nearly impossible for those who speak clearly to understand that terror. As such, when an actor, well-trained and well-spoken, takes on a role like this, it can turn into camp if handled the wrong way. Against those odds, Colin Firth triumphs. He makes you ache for Bertie and allows you to sympathize with his perils, his inability to be the full person he wants to be. Yet there are times when he succumbs to human weakness and his royal bearing turns him into a pompous youknow-what. But when his

better angels win out, it’s inspiring and transcendent. Firth captures all of those contrasting moods and proves his greatness as an actor. Some, of course, are quibbling about the history, as if films have somehow never, ever, fudged the facts before. Others have poor-mouthed the crowd-pleasing aspects, forgetting that the point is to get an audience involved, not just leave them cold. They can have their reservations. I’d rather state the important point – that, even several days after seeing it, The King’s Speech has stayed with me in a way few movies ever have. A tale about a monarch is not supposed to create such a feeling, but this one does.

Mats Pembridge gets victory at Class B meet By Phil Blackwell

Skaneateles wrestler Kevin Pembridge continued his superb season-long effort with a victory at 140 pounds during last Saturday’s Section III Class B championship meet at Oneida. Pembridge, who improved to 24-2 on the season, began his journey by holding off Vernon-Verona-Sherrill’s Aaron Prichard 5-2 in the quarterfinals. Then came a semifinal against John Regan (Chittenango), where Pembridge would keep Regan off the board in a 3-0 shutout. All this led to the final against Oneida’s Connor LoMonaco. Despite the fact that LoMonaco was wrestling on his home mat, Pembridge made the necessary moves and won his third straight decision by a three-point margin, this one 7-4. Overall, Skaneateles put up 71 points to take ninth place in a 12-team field, far from Phoenix, who won with 245.5 points. Chris Wise, beaten in the 171-pound semifinals by Hannibal’s Rob Burnett, rebounded with two consolation bracket wins to claim third place, culminating in a 14-0 romp over Homer’s Cameron Ashley. Garrett Navaroli salvaged fifth place at 285 pounds with a 3-0 win over VVS’s Josh Legler. Jacob Brillo worked his way to the semifinals at 160 pounds, only to see Casey Hanson (South Jefferson) pin him en route to victory as Brillo eventually finished sixth. Josh Brillo, like his brother, settled for sixth place at 96 pounds after going 1-2. Tyler Saunders (119 pounds) beat Eric Petrie (Homer) 12-5 in the first round, but lost to eventual champion Nick Tighe (Phoenix) in the quarterfinals. Much the same happened to Ryan Dick at 125 pounds, Dick pinning Brandon Harrington (Phoenix) in the first round but falling to VVS’s Dylan Kavanaugh a round later. At 145 pounds, Jake Valentino took out Alex Carter (Chittenango) 6-2 in the first round, but lost in the quarterfinals to another VVS wrestler, Nate Walts. Owen Sheppard (130 pounds) and Jon Laubner (152 pounds) lost in the first round and Connor Rourke fell in the 215-pound quarterfinals. Pembridge and Wise have qualified for the Section III Division II championships, which take place Saturday at 9 a.m. at Utica Memorial Auditorium.

“Stray,” a gray Tabby male not more than a year old, was found outside Tami Renner’s Skaneateles home Jan. 18. His beautifully-slanted green eyes stand out like no other cat Renner has seen, and his easy going outlook makes him the purr-fect house guest for now. Renner, who took out “Found” ads last week in multiple local newspapers, said she hopes to find his owner, or even a new family for him, soon. She has received no phone calls to date. “At this point, I would probably ask for another week’s worth of time and another [ad to find his owner] and if I don’t get a call, I would say yes [to a person seeking to adopt].” When Stray first appeared, Renner said he was in rough shape and extremely dehydrated.

Crunch finally dispel Phantoms Syracuse skaters win Friday in Glens Falls, Saturday at War Memorial By Russ Tarby Refreshed after a week off while the American Hockey League All-Star game was played, the Syracuse Crunch returned to the ice last weekend winning a rare two games in a row. On Friday, Feb. 4, the Crunch finally dispelled the Adirondack Phantoms, shutting them out 5-0 at the Glens Falls Civic Center. The elusive Phantoms – the worst team in the entire AHL – had inexplicably beaten Syracuse in each of their five previous games this season. Then, on Saturday, Feb. 5, the Crunch whipped the best team in the league’s Eastern Division, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, at the Onondaga County War Memorial by a score of 4-2. It was the first time the struggling Syracuse squad has enjoyed back-to-back

victories since New Year’s Day. Facing the Phantoms Friday in Glens Falls, Crunch left winger Patrick Maroon stung his former team with two goals, and goalie J.P. Levasseur made 31 saves for his fourth shutout of the season. Three of Syracuse’s five goals came on power plays, and the team’s penalty-kill was extremely effective, not allowing a man-up goal during eight Adirondack opportunities. Meanwhile, the Crunch took aim at Phantoms’ goalie Johan Backlund with 25 shots, resulting in goals by Kyle Palmieri, Matt Beleskey and Mark Mitera along with Maroon’s deuce. Saturday at the War Memorial, the Crunch scored three power play goals for the second straight night to beat first-place WilkesBarre/Scranton, 4-2. Crunch center Nick Bonino popped in two

Center Maxime Macenauer also scored along with left winger Matt Beleskey who notched the game-winner plus an assist. Netminder Levasseur stopped 36 of 38 shots en route to his second victory in 24 hours.

Syracuse’s next home games are set for Feb. 18 and 19 at 7:30 p.m., as the team faces off at the War Memorial against the San Antonio Rampage and the Rochester Amerks, respectively. Ticket prices range between $13 and $22; 473-4444; syracusecrunch. com.

‘Generation Alzheimer’s’

Report details the Impact of Alzheimer’s disease on the Baby Boom Generation stand the anguish caused by Alzheimer’s,” said Catherine James, chief executive officer of the Alzheimer’s Association, Central New York Chapter. “Baby boomers are at the epicenter of a major Alzheimer’s disease crisis in America with staggering implications for families and the country’s health care system.” According to the report, an estimated 10 million baby boomers will develop Alzheimer’s – one in eight will either die with or from this disease. While Alzheimer’s is not normal aging, age is the greatest risk factor for the disease. With one of the most unprecedented demographic shifts starting this year, the report underscores the need for urgent attention to change the trajectory of this disease. “The anguish of Alzheimer’s is not just experienced by

Jordan reptile rescuer faces 59 charges from CNY SPCA By Ned Campbell Diana Sleiertin, owner of MaxMan Reptile Rescue in Jordan, has been in and out of court since the Central New York SPCA seized more than 40 reptiles from her home in Jordan in late October. Sleiertin currently faces 45 charges of improper confinement (a misdemeanor) and 14 additional charges for failure to provide medical care. The case is being reviewed by a town of Elbridge judge, and Sleiertin could receive up to $1,000 per charge and up to two years of prison. Central New York SPCA Director Paul Morgan said he obtained a warrant to go into Sleiertin’s house after receiving statements from former MaxMan volunteers claiming the conditions inside her home were deplorable and the animals were not being given proper care. Morgan, who has turned to MaxMan for help with reptiles in the past, said Sleiertin is a valuable resource, but feels she got in over her head. “I think her intentions were good in the beginning, but I think unfortunately she became a hoarder,” he said. “She just got too many to care for.” Morgan said the SPCA found close to 70 reptiles in Sleiertin’s home, and that they were “all over the place, in her kitchen and living room.” Sleiertin has declined comment at the advice of her attorney, but MaxMan volunteers and others, including veterinarians who have worked closely with Sleiertin, contest the notion that Sleiertin got in over her head. Linda Fay, a MaxMan volunteer who has known Sleiertin for about five years, said most of Sleiertin’s reptiles are kept in the “reptile room,” and all reptiles are kept in proper enclosures with appropriate heat and lighting. Some reptiles are kept throughout the house, but always in cages or tanks, Fay said. “Sometimes it’s messier than other times, but it’s not like something you’d see on hoarders,” she said. Fay added that Sleiertin is more than equipped to take care of the reptiles she has, and can turn to her crew of volunteers for assistance. MaxMan is staffed with around 45 volunteers and offers a junior volunteer program for kids ages 8 to 18. Fay and other supporters of Sleiertin feel the SPCA should have conducted a more thorough investigation before entering Sleiertin’s home unannounced and seizing the reptiles. Among those supporters is Laura Cook, a practicing small animal veterinarian with more than 21 years of experience. “I have gotten to know Diana and her animals fairly well as they have presented for the New York State Veterinary Medical Society at our DVM exhibit at the New York State Fair for the last several years,” Cook said. “Diana and her animals have been a welcome addition at our exhibit … Her knowledge of the animals she keeps is outstanding.” Cook was a humane officer in Tompkins County for three years. “I find it from a humane officer’s point of view a serious breach of conduct that no effort was made to investigate conditions personally or interview Diana prior to seizing the animals,” she said. “Education should come first in my opinion, and seizure of animals, stressing them severely and putting them into an already

strained shelter and adoption system, should be a last resort.” Morgan insists that conditions inside Sleiertin’s home were unsatisfactory and that the SPCA was justified in seizing the animals. He said he hopes to help Sleiertin come to a compromise with how many animals she has under her care. “One of the things we need to establish through this process is how many animals is too much,” Morgan said. “We’re not here to destroy Diana’s life … she’s a very resourceful person in the reptile world.” While the case awaits a decision, the reptiles remain in the possession of the SPCA. An iguana was returned to Diana by the judge’s order after Sleiertin’s attorney brought it to the court’s attention that the reptile was the personal pet of Sleiertin’s son. Fay said the iguana was returned in poorer shape than it was in when first confiscated. “It came back dehydrated, underweight, it lost quite a bit of weight,” she said. She feels the SPCA is not equipped to care for reptiles. “The SPCA is used to taking care of cats and dogs and the occasional bunny,” she said. Morgan said the SPCA is equipped to take care of reptiles and that the seized animals are being given proper care. The animals will remain with the SPCA until the judge comes to a decision, Morgan said.

individuals with the disease; their friends, families and communities suffer right along with them. Today there are 11 million friends and families who are looking after a loved one with Alzheimer’s and grappling with the enormous challenges this disease places on their well-being, health and jobs,” James said. In 2009, New York’s 729,796 Alzheimer’s caregivers provided the economic equivalent of $9.5 billion. Beyond the significant toll on families, the financial burden on families is significant and can quickly escalate beyond what is affordable. These costs rival what Alzheimer’s will cost the nation. Over the next 40 years, Alzheimer’s will cost $20 trillion, enough to pay off the national debt and still send a $20,000 check to every man, woman and child in America.Alzcny.org/news.

Medically supervised weight loss offered Women’s Health Specialists (WHS) announces the addition of a comprehensive medical weight loss program featuring OPTIFAST meal replacement products. “OPTIFAST products have been shown to safely reduce weight, cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure,” says Dr. Eileen Murphy, Medical Director of WHS. Men and women of all ages are welcome to enroll. “The program is designed for people who are discouraged because they’ve tried and failed other programs,” says Dr. Murphy. WHS experts provide supervision, nutritional counseling, and behavioral strategies for a healthier life style. As medical professionals, they can adjust medications and monitor caloric intake and diet. They also consult with primary care physicians when necessary. Program options available WHS offers several options for weight loss. One option includes full meal replacement with OPTIFAST products. Another has partial meal replacement in which OPTIFAST products and selfprepared foods are combined. The Lifestyle option is available for those who prefer self-prepared foods. Since long-term weight management can be especially challenging, WHS encourages participants to enroll in our maintenance program.

Register in advance for information session Dr. Murphy invites people to register for her free, no-obligation informational sessions to learn more. “Speakers discuss why so many of us are overweight, why traditional diets often fail, and how OPTIFAST products promote weight loss,” says Dr. Murphy. “This is a great way for attendees to decide which weight loss program is right for them.” Sessions are held on the first and third Mondays of every month from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Attendees must register in advance by calling 253-9749. Women’s Health Specialists focuses on the medical and surgical treatment of gynecological conditions in women of all ages. Since 1995 the physicians and staff have served residents of Central New York from their office in Auburn.

Starting this year, more than 10,000 baby boomers a day will turn 65. As the Baby Boomers age, one in eight will develop Alzheimer’s – a devastating, costly, heartbreaking disease. Increasingly for this generation, it will no longer be their grandparents and parents who have Alzheimer’s. It will be them. The Alzheimer’s Association’s “Generation Alzheimer’s” report, released on January 27, outlines the specific impact that the disease will have on the Baby Boom generation. It can be viewed online or downloaded alzcny.org/boomers. “Today, more than 5 million Americans have this disease including more than 45,800 here in Central New York.
