Having received many accolades for his efforts there, most noteably Ceili Rain—which Billboard Magazine hailed as a band “that the whole world should see”— he stays busy on the road as well. In fact, at the time of this writing Bob is heading back home to Syracuse after visiting Iowa where Ceili Rain performed Halligan’s music written for Alfred Hitchcock’s silent film, “The Lodger” at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival earlier in April. Mr. Halligan was recently the only American invited to sing at a Papal gathering of 100,000 people in Italy, and met Pope Francis. The accolades go on and on: Con-

These changes mean something different to every person, but for me, it means that the summer movie season is just around the corner. Here are a look at some of the big names coming out over the course of the next few months.

releases. Relying heavily on the time honored classics that established the studio as the king of family films, they began to produce live-action remakes of beloved animated features such as CINDERELLA, PETE’S DRAGON, THE JUNGLE BOOK, and most recently, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. This summer, however, they aren’t cracking open the archives, but rather, reacquainting audiences with one of their most lucrative brands and popular characters. It’s been 14 years since the release of the fourth installment in the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise (ON STRANGER TIDES) was released, and there are questions abound as to the relevancy and necessity of another chapter in the billion dollar franchise. Conventional wisdom dictates that this installment will be bigger, bolder, and more beautiful than those that have come before it. Considering that special effects and set-pieces were one of the reasons that PIRATES thrived as well as it did, there is little doubt that DEAD MEN will be chock full of bombastic visuals. What I want to know is, will there be a narrative to drive the film, or will it simply be a flashy rehash of the same high sea hijinks that comprised at Ontario Orchard the original movies? With returning characters such as Barbossa (GeofMAY 26 OCTOBER 1 frey Rush,) Elizabeth Swan (Keira Knightley,) and Will Turner (Orlando FRIDAY SUNDAY 11 7 Bloom) it will be interesting to see whether they find a way to add new life and levity to the litany of familiar faces. The true test of PIRATES won’t revolve around plotlines or effects, but rather, the public’s opinion of star Johnny Depp. There is no franchise without the lovable Captain Catering Available Jack Sparrow, but after a string of flops, and ugly allegations of abuse from his ex-wife Amber Heard, DEAD 7735 ST. ROUTE 104 MEN will serve as the litmus test of OSWEGO, NY whether or not Depp still carries the clout he did when the original films at the peak of their popularity. RELEASE DATE: MAY 26, 2017

CARS 3

Within the lexicon of Pixar feature length films, there are many who would place CARS 2 at the bottom of the heap. Some were rankled by the fact that its James Bond-like plotline was a bit too intense for younger viewers, while others disliked the fact that Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) became the main protagonist, while Lighting McQueen (Owen Wilson) was relegated to a supporting role. In my opinion, these diversions from the original were far less troublesome, and while it certainly did not measure up to the original CARS, it was still entertaining enough to rise above the typical family fare. It remains to be seen where the CARS franchise goes from here. Will director Brian Fee and the rest of his crew get back to the basics that made the original such an endearing hit, or will they continue to push boundaries and provide viewers with a new narrative on familiar characters? If the recent release of the official trailer for the film is any indication, it looks like Lightning McQueen will once again become the focal point of the franchise. The trailer, and indeed the first poster released for CARS 3, had a dark tone to it, and it appears that the narrative will be a bit more complex than the spy-centric adventure that the second installment was. Bringing together familiar favorites like McQueen, Mater, Luigi (Tony Shalhoub,) and Sally (Bonnie Hunt,) while introducing new characters Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) and Sterling (Nathan Fillion,) there is little doubt that the filmmakers heard the harsh criticisms aimed at CARS 2, and will go to great lengths to prove that the franchise continues to remain a relevant entity for Pixar.

THE DARK TOWER

Summer Movie Preview continued from pg 7

the same over-the-top, fireworkfueled sequences as some of its big budget contemporaries, its special effects were absolutely stunning.  Featuring excellent turns by Andy Serkis as the incredibly intelligent Caesar, the films made you somehow forget that the apes themselves weren’t real.  Within the confines of their cinematic universe, they were completely believable, and more importantly, sympathetic. Though the original PLANET OF THE APES exuded an endearingly cheesy charm, this new incarnation is far more visceral.  Both RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES built drama steadily throughout their respective stories, ratcheting up the tension with each and every scene.  They were as stunning to look at as they were frightening to behold, and as the series inches ever closer to the eradication of the human race, I would imagine (and desperately hope) that the quality of the productions matches their lofty ambitions. The finale of DAWN was shockingly brutal, and with Matt Reeves returning to direct this follow-up, you can expect WAR to explore the psychology the drives Caesar and his crew, and the lengths that they will go in order to preserve their place in the world. RELEASE DATE: JULY 14, 2017

After languishing for years in limbo, an adaptation of Stephen King’s THE DARK TOWER is finally being released on the big screen. For the sake of objectivity, I should mention that I am a pretty big, well, okay, a HUGE fan of King’s magnum opus.  Stretched out over the course of 8 complex stories, the series focused on the quest of Gunslinger Roland Deschain (played Idris Elba in the film) as he yearns to defeat the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) and reach the elusive and mysterious Dark Tower. Like PIRATES, there are innumerable questions to be answered in regards to THE DARK TOWER, the most pressing of which is how King’s complex and metaphysical tale will translate to film.  There is a thoroughly fascinating world that is introduced and explored in the 4,250 pages of material that King produced. TOWER contains elements of multiple genres, including drama, sci-fi, horror, and spaghetti western. For director Nikolaj Arcel to condense all of these elements into a 2 hour film will be no easy task. There had been a long-running belief that THE DARK TOWER was going to be produced as a television series as opposed to a set of films, and being familiar with King’s source material, I always thought this would have been the correct course of action. With so many characters and plotlines that are essential to the progression of the MIDDLE-EASTERN & GREEK tale, it will essentially be up to Arcel and crew as to whether or not there will be any future films. The future of the TOWER is wholly contingent on the success of this initial chapter, and there are millions of King fans around the world hoping against hope that this Full Bar • CraFt Beer • CateriNg & BaNquet room serves as the adaptation this saga deserves.

Brew Time by GLORIA AVILES-RAKOWSKY

Mix Up Your Game With a Beer Cocktail With spring in full swing in Central New York, we open our sunroofs, dust off the flip-flops, and grill to our heart’s content. For me, nothing marks the season than sipping on lighter beer style – lagers, pilsners, and wheat beers are just some that come to mind. Another way to enjoy beer during this time is via the beer cocktail – usually a combination of beer with other ingredients. While it may sound like an oxymoron to purists who wouldn’t mix anything with their beloved brew – beer cocktails have been around for quite some time. My introduction to these interesting mixes was the Black and Tan, a combination of a stout and a light ale.  I then moved on to the Snakebite, a refreshing mix of a stout and hard cider.  Other common beer cocktails are the Black Velvet (stout and Champagne), the German Radler or British Shandy (lighter beer mixed with carbonated lemonade, ginger beer or ginger ale) and the Irish Car Bomb (a shot of Irish cream and whiskey dropped into a stout).  You don’t have to go to an Irish pub to get these drinks; most places that serve these types of beer will create the mixture of your choice.

I usually enjoy a craft beer on its own but on a warm day I like to have a michelada. Although it sounds like a car tire and not a beer cocktail, this concoction is a delicious drink. The michelada hails from Mexico, mostly known for Corona with lime. Its name derives from the slang term for beer, “chela”. From there, the word michelada roughly translates to “my beer”. The first time I one was in the early 90’s in Mexico City.  I was hooked instantly. Ordering one made my mouth water in

Preventive Medicine by DR. BARRY

The Benefit of Exercise I have written in the last year about interesting or exciting innovations like the Cognivue test which is the first and only FDA approved machine to test for dementia. I have written about the Pharmanex scanner to assess your nutritional / antioxidant status. I have written about the chronic care program sponsored by Medicare. These are all up-to-date, next generation/new wave issues but today I want to write about one of the bedrock issues of medicine which is the benefit of exercise. Everyone knows that exercise and eating right are good for you, in fact, it’s so well known that you spend very little time with your doctor discussing it. That’s a shame because the benefits are dramatic and sustainable and I think that the proof of this should be brought up on a regular basis. We doctors have recommended a lot of things that in the end didn’t turn out to be true or meaningful. We told her to avoid eggs and that isn’t right. We told you to cut down the meat and the fats in your diet and that’s wrong as well. Years ago and still recently we said increase the carbohydrates in your diet and we know how wrong that is. We used to use leeches, we still do but in medically appropriate setting now. So If I’m going to recommend something I’d better back it up with up to date science. Let’s start with exercise and dementia in the February 2017 Mayo Clinics pro-

The benefits of exercise are dramatic and sustainable and I think that the proof of this should be brought up on a regular basis.

ceedings they did a test of 6000 veterans to assess for exercise capacity and the association with dementia and cognitive impairment. The researchers found that “exercise capacity is strongly associated with cognitive function.“ The more you exercise the better your brain testing was. Since dementia is considered in some circles to be the #3 cause of death In America, this alone should be strong impetus to get on a good exercise program and to stay on it. Another article from the Mayo Clinic from January 2017 assessed cardiovascular fitness and the likelihood of having an adverse cardiovascular event that is stroke or heart attack or sudden death. This test involved 20,000 US veterans

more than half of whom are AfricanAmerican. This study followed these men for 11 years. The research found that there was a very direct correlation between exercise capacity and adverse cardiovascular events. -The more fit you were the less likely a heart attack or stroke etc. The difference in mortality between the least fit and the most fit was quite dramatic. Finally, the American Journal of medicine in 2016 published study that evaluated the impact of cardiorespiratory fitness levels on the risk of developing atherosclerosis -(hardening of the arteries). As you know the conventional wisdom is that the higher your cholesThe more fit you were the less likely a heart attack or stroke etc. The difference in mortality terol the more hardening of the arteries between the least fit and the most fit was quite you’ll have. Hardening of the arteries dramatic. leads to strokes and heart attack. They basically followed people like myself with very high cholesterol levels who were also vigorous exercisers to see if the vigorous exercise could counteract the effects of the high cholesterol levels. They found, in fact, that if you had regular vigorous exercise it was amazingly protective of the heart despite the high cholesterol levels. So, three articles published within the last year all confirm the various benefits of exercise. It protects the brain. It protects the heart. You don’t have to belong to a gym to get good exercise. Of course in this part of the country the other important thing to remember is that you have to weatherproof your exercise. So many people tell me that they don’t get out of the house much in the winter. Imagine leaving your car in the garage over the winter and trying to start it reliably come spring. There are many places like Destiny, Wal-Mart and Wegmans that have been enclosed areas you can walk in. Soon with Uber coming you won’t have any excuses left. The great thing about exercise is it doesn’t really require prescription from the doctor. It doesn’t require special outfits. It doesn’t require special training places. It doesn’t require hours and hours of your time every day. You can do it alone or you can do it with other people. You can do it indoor or out. You can do it daytime or nighttime. There is no real reason that you can’t get started today to improve itself a little bit every day physically and for that matter mentally. Next month we will again bring you something cutting edge, at least for Syracuse. Until then get well and stay well.

My 16 year old self would consider this downright blasphemous, but there is no denying that streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu have emerged as the modern equivalent to the local video stores that dotted the map in every town in America for the better part of the ‘80’s and ‘90’s. This is coming from someone who was the quintessential “video store guy.” I won’t get into exactly what actions led me to place myself in this coveted, and wholly forgettable category, but the point is, I loved being at the Village Video. Now, in virtually every conceivable way, you can get the same in-store experience from the comfy confines of your couch. You can browse to your heart’s content, and when you finally find something worth watching, you won’t have to worry about the VHS tracking being messed up, or a disc being scratched. The movie (or show) you want to take in won’t always be “out” whenever you want to see it. Best of all, you can stumble upon gems that you were completely unaware of, thereby opening doors that you never knew existed. The reason I lay all of this out there, is because recently, I

What We Do in the Shadows- A Thanks to the wonders of technology, here was the movie, just begging me to press play. Set in New Zealand, the phenomenally hilarious “What We Do in the Shadows” is a mockumentary that is bursting with laughs, absurdity, and ingenuity. Co-directed, co-written, and co-starring Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi, “What We Do in the Shadows” introduces audiences to four vampires named Viago (Waititi,) Vladislav (Clement,) Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) and Petyr (Ben Fransham,) who share a flat in Wellington. Aged 379, 862, 183, and 8,000 years old respectively, they navigate

There is plenty of credit to go around, but Clement and Waititi deserve an endless amount of praise.

the perils of being a demon in the modern world. They like the same things many “normal” people do like dancing, playing instruments, and going out to bars. Unfortunately, they also have a penchant for blood-sucking, a contentious relationship with werewolves, and an affinity for the taste of human blood. Addressing the camera directly for the sake of a documentary, they hope to present a fair representation of how their daily lives work, and show that just because they are centuries old, doesn’t mean that they can’t fit in and adapt when the need presents itself. There is something special about “What We Do in the Shadows,” and at times, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is. Outwardly, it seems like just another your typical mockumentary fare, but throughout the entire duration of the film, it is uproariously funny, and stuffed with enough jokes, sight gags, and deadpan humor that it separates itself from its comedic contemporaries. Toying with the conventions that a century worth of vampire flicks have unleashed upon the world, Clement and Waititi constantly find clever ways to pay homage while remaining true to their hundreds of predecessors.

Tales from the Vine by CASSANDRA HARRINGTON

The Wine-Buying Habits of Millennials I can confidently say that every one of my friends likes wine, to some degree. If they don’t like it, they love it. My friends and family have a wide array of preferences. Some love sweet, some love dry. Some love red, some white or rosé. Then I have a fair amount of friends who, like me, love anything that bubbles. In fact, I cannot recall a time when my friends and I have gotten together that there wasn’t at least one bottle of bubbly present. Second to bubbly, dry rosé is a common find among our group. I recently read an article from Meininger’s Wine Business International titled “Is the Millennial market all Thanks to Everyone who Voted Us BEST PLACE FOR A FISH FRY! it’s cracked up to be?” In the article, Felicity Carter discusses the buying patterns of the highly-sought-after millennial target market.

It is growing more and more evident that consumer demand is changing as boomers buy less wine and Millennials buy more.

1980 and 1995. I, myself, am a millennial, so articles like this always grab my attention. Also, because the Trail’s promotions committee has had many discussions about how to capture the attention of the millennial market. That conversation always entails a debate on whether they’re the right market to be targeting, given their general lack of expendable income. Among my friends, the desire to drink wine is evident. I cannot, however, say that they have a particular brand loyalty. We certainly have a Finger Lakes preference, but it’s not always an option if we are gathering at one of their homes in Boston, Nashville or Queens. In that case, purchasing decisions are made on a more whimsical basis, like the color of the bottle, the design of the label and inevitably, price (we’re all laden with significant student loan payments). The article references Bob McMillan, founder of the Silicon Valley Bank’s Wine Division. According to studies, McMillan reports that baby boomers are still dominating the wine market. Millennials, however, are greatly affecting the lower-priced wine segments, wine between $8 and $14. McMillan credits Millennials with frugality, something I can relate to. The good news on this is that I can recommend an entire list of CLWT wines that fit this profile, both delicious and affordable. MIDDLE AGES $ 69 The article makes IMPERIAL WHEAT ALE SIX PACK mention of younger consumers “approaching wine in a discovery phase” in which they talk about it, research it, share it and experiment.

their experience via social media. After all, word-of-mouth is the most effective form of marketing. We’re human and we trust the recommendations of our comrades. My favorite quote of McMillan’s is “… wine as a subject is daunting and the younger generation is impatient. They want what they want, when they want it and it’s confusing … .” There’s mention of how younger wine consumers often prefer to drink blends, or wines made with a combination of various grape juices because they come across as less complicated. Wines that are tied to specific varietals, such as Chardonnay or Merlot, are confusing to a consumer who may not know if that particular varietal is typically sweet or dry. Then, add in vintages, and it grows more complicated. The customer may fear choosing a wine from a “bad year.” So, we’re seeing many more red blends, or table wines that have neither varietal nor vintage associated with them fly off the shelves. It is growing more and more evident that consumer demand is changing as boomers buy less wine and Millennials buy more. McMillan claims “Today (boomers) are being replaced one-for-one by the frugal young millennials.” So, it’s my prediction that as Millennials become the largest consumer market segment, that they (we) are certainly worth targeting.

We tried the Seyval Blanc (a little and crisp white with attractive aromas of apricots, peaches and nectarines, R.S. 1%), Vidal Blanc (a slightly sweet and light white with a fruity finish and sweet grapefruit and pineapple aromas R.S. 1.6%), Baco Noir (A deeply pigmented wine, fruitforward, with aromas of black fruits and caramel R.S. .3%), and Perplexity 2013 (an complex yet refreshing red with a harmony of flavors including hints of blueberry, black cherry, spices, chocolate and vanilla. R.S. 08%.) Either we made great selections or, more likely, every wine at Greenwood Winery is delightful because we enjoyed ever sip! We started our meal with Greenwood Greens, continued on pg 26

Business of Business of Interest

by JANET LA FRANCE

Ole’ Ole’ Are your taste buds looking for a party then you need to go to Ole’ Ole’ in Mattydale! Owner and chef, Lenny Aviles, bought the restaurant in October of 2016. The restaurant opened in 2015, and Lenny became the chef in January of 2016 and then decided to buy it in the fall. Lenny comes from a restaurant family – his parents owned Carmelita’s in the 70s and 80s. He always helped his parents from kitchen to counter and everything in between. For over ten years, Lenny worked in funerary business. But even with a full-time job there, he found time to cook. He’s worked as a short order cook and a server so his link to the restaurant industry never ended. As a matter of fact, he longed to return cooking – it’s his passion. That’s evident the minute you walk into Ole’ Ole’! Upon entering Ole’ Ole’, I loved that I could see into the kitchen which was immaculately clean. As a former restaurant owner, I am particular about how a restaurant is kept and run. However, I saw the same level of pride and care in this place as I did my own. The dining room had sparkling clean tables and floors. Even the checkout counter was neat and tidy with the tempting menus neatly stacked next to the register. And if that doesn’t appeal to you, you can always feel comfortable with the home like environment. The clay colored walls are clad with bejeweled sombreros, and decoratively woven rugs. I fell in love with the turtles made from seashells and wood – craftsmanship directly from Mexico. This is not another chain store Mexican restaurant! Lenny came from Mexico City with a slew of family recipes all of which are on the menu. “Each restaurant has their own way of cooking especially when you use the recipes particular to your family. I don’t care what one you go to, but no two Mexican restaurants are the same. You can have the same items on your menu, but it will taste differently from place to place.” As a person with a passion for cooking, I understood what Lenny meant. “You don’t measure do you?” I said with a grin Ole’ Ole’ is not another chain store Mexican because I already knew restaurant! Owner and chef, Lenny Aviles’ came the answer! “Only rice,” from Mexico City with a slew of family recipes Lenny said with a smile, all of which are on the menu. “but no, I don’t measure

anything else. It’s by color, smell and taste. You must taste what you’re cooking or you’ll end up serving something that may not be the quality you want to put out there. You want a customer to enjoy the experience every time and to do that, you have to be consistent. I may not measure, but I always taste what I’m cooking.” Currently, the restaurant is open six days a week – Monday through Thursday is 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM, and Friday and Saturday 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM. Sundays are family days for the Aviles family. As a family business, Lenny’s daughter, Maria, helps by running the front end of the operation. “However, she can do it all if I have to go out for a bit – she knows everything!” said the proud Papa. Since Ole’ Ole’ also offers catering, there is a lot of running to do. Lenny can provide a tasty and affordable menu for any event and any number of guests. If you just want something small, Lenny will gladly bring his taco cart CATERING & GIFT CARDS AVAILABLE! with the same delicious food but with a limited menu.

My Mind To Yours

by DEBRA MERRYWEATHER

May We Be Well May is the month of May Day, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and, for those raised Roman Catholic, the month of Mary, Mother of Jesus. May is also National Mental Health Awareness Month, an observance started in 1949, to educate the public about mental health and mental illness. Mental Health Month generally follows a theme and this year’s theme is either “wellbeing” or “sex, drugs and rock and roll,” depending on which organization’s website you read. Conditions thought to be mental illness might be neither mental nor illness depending on what book you read or with whom you’re conversing. Labels and perceptions change and sometimes quickly. Early in the twentieth century the condition we now identify as autism was labeled childhood schizophrenia. Schizophrenia as diagnosed today often emerges in the late teens and early twenties. Schizophrenia, referred to as dementia praecox earlier in its history, is often associated with hearing

A diagnosed split personality would more likely fall under the category of dissociative disorders which often stem from trauma and, possibly and probably, brain injuries. Dissociative identity disorder, made famous as multiple personality disorder by the book and movie “Sybil,” may not have existed at all in the patient most known for the condition. Debbie Nathan, in “Sybil Exposed,” describes how the reallife Shirley Mason’s psychiatrist, Dr. Cornelia Wilbur, treated Shirley with sodium pentothal and electroshock while Dr. Wilbur tried to communiGolf Club & Tavern cate with Shirley’s alter personalities.

Distressed young children learning how to quiet themselves might at the same time be NOT learning how to speak for themselves. Healthy minds grow in context gradually and incrementally. Mental health professionals learn from observing the labeled, hospitalized mentally ill. Watching someone’s outside can miss much on the person’s inside.

The National Institute of Health’s Brain and Human Connectome Projects seek to map the human brain and its connections using the latest neuroscientific technology. All social science research fights the elevation of hard science causal proofs over soft science deductions. Psychological and psychiatric lab experiments have sometimes excluded environmental variables and ignored human safety and dignity to prove behavioral hypotheses.

call them that). Margaret is a wise woman, but like all of Gregory’s female protagonists, she has a flaw: pride. She is of royal blood, and while she would love to see her children raised up, she also is clear that Henry is perhaps, a little mad. Margaret is a friend and lady-in-waiting to Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII – and erstwhile wife to his older, departed brother. Determined to marry her, Henry demands that Phillipa Gregory is one of the most the Pope grant annulment so prolific and knowledgeable writer’s that he can marry this woman, of British historical fiction that I on the grounds that the marriage have read. was never consummated. The Pope, even under pressure, won’t do this, though Catherine marries him, thinking all is well. They do not produce a boy heir, and Henry’s once passionate interest in his older wife wanes as he looks to the clever Anne Boleyn for comfort – and an heir.  Now you probably know the story of  Henry’s many wives, and his various ways of getting rid of them – but what fascinates about this book is the point of view: a woman’s, an older woman, and a woman who plays a dangerous game near the throne under the rule of one of, if not the most dangerous kings of the old world.

If you’re a fan of The White Queen, or even if you’re not – do yourself a favor and pick up the first book of that series (The Lady of the Rivers) and keep right on reading through to the Tudor saga, where this book resides. You should enjoy the read, and you may come away feeling that perhaps our political climate is not nearly as fraught as it sometimes seems!

Beauty & Fashion by ANNIKA HOIEM

Style For the Summer & Your Soul As spring fades and temperatures rise, bikini pictures and dieting trends fill social media feeds. Though eating clean is commendable, often these curated images can lead women down a path of comparison and self-hate. The fashion world is often depicted in a similarly exclusive manner. Celebrities walk the catwalk in size two silk shifts with a seemingly untouchable air. Though warm weather is joy, it can also induce dread for women who don’t fit this image. Rather than allowing them space to be themselves, culture’s constructed a narrow silhouette for how women should look. The truth is that we are all different and beautifully so. Each person has unique curves, eyebrows, ankles, cheekbones, ear lobes, and lips. I had a beauty mark on my face that I was not particularly fond of. After I confided in one of dearest friends, she said that mole was “her favorite part about me.” These “flaws” that we fixate on are often unnoticed, sometimes they are even envied by others. So why do we constantly search for something wrong when we look in the mirror? When I think about summer, I think about embracing natural beauty. Though makeup can be fun, it should never be used as a curtain to hide behind. Liquid confidence is no confidence at all. Look in the mirror each morning with knowing that nothing you OPEN TUESDAY – SATURDAY see needs alteration. If you’re reaching for makeup as an accessory by all means, go ahead.

Are You Ready For Summer? Ah, summer is almost here! Are you as excited as I am? I was made for sunny days! It’s been a long cold winter for many of us Central New Yorkers and I know most of you are more than ready to get out your shorts, sandals and tank tops! We can now look forward to longer days, warmer weather and the soothing sound of the crickets chirping away as we fall asleep at night. This is the best time of year to get outside and take advantage of the weather. Whether you like to play a few games of beach volleyball, canoe, kayak, go for long walks, hike, or play golf, there’s an outdoor activity for everyone to enjoy! Though summer is one of our favorite seasons, it comes with its fair share of challenges. When the temperature starts to climb we have no choice but to take off a few layers and for some of us, baring our flesh to the world is not something we look forward to! Now, let’s be honest with ourselves. Many of us have more than a few pounds to shed before we hit the beach. Do you wish you had started using that gym membership sooner? Do you wait until the last minute to do something about it every year? Are you feeling like you don’t know where to begin? You can still take summer on by storm this year! You just need to make the decision to do something about it now! Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Stay Motivated

Many people really struggle to stay motivated. By motivated, I mean motivated to do anything that requires movement. This includes getting out of bed, off the couch, doing yard work, going to work, or doing any kind of physical activity. What motivates you? Whether it is an old photo of you when you looked your best or a picture of a bathing suit you want to wear this summer; you need to find something that is a constant reminder of the fitness goals you are trying to achieve.

The motto thirty percent gym, seventy percent diet hits the nail right on the head. Ab’s are made in the kitchen, not in the gym.

Stay Hydrated

We all tend to drink less than we should, which can make us feel hungry when we’re actually thirsty. Stick with water or herbal tea and avoid carbonated drinks. Some studies report that herbal teas (like green tea) can even help you lose a few pounds.

There are a lot of people who just can’t get the eating right thing down. Trust me, you’re not alone! I’m not going to lie; it’s the hardest part. Either we eat too much of the wrong thing or we don’t eat enough (which throws the body into starvation mode and slows down the metabolism). If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. It’s that simple. So if you want to reach your fitness goals successfully, you need to create a plan that you can stick with and follow every day. Try using an app such as MyFitnessPal. Studies have shown that people who keep a journal (especially a food journal) are more successful at losing weight and keeping it off than those who do not.

Have a Contest

GET IN SHAPE FOR SUMMER

POUND at PULSE

Team up with a group of friends or co-workers who also want to get in shape for summer and have a friendly contest. Have each person throw in ten or twenty dollars, since money is always a great incentive to lose a few pounds. Pick a day each week where everyone can weigh in, and after a few months (or however long your group decides); the participant with the greatest percentage of weight loss will be awarded the prize money.

Don’t Waste Any More Time

Don’t waste any more time sitting around hemming and hawing about what you should do. Get started today! Incorporate two to three days a week of strength training and three to five days a week of cardio into your routine. Don’t know what you’re doing? Look into purchasing a few sessions with a personal trainer. Personal trainers are experts in the fields of fitness and weight loss and they are your go to when you are looking for assistance with your exercise routine. Not only will a personal trainer design a customized program specific for your goals, he or she will help you get maximum results in a minimal amount of time. continued on pg 37

Style For the Summer and Your Soul continued from pg 27

Covered Up Cool:

The perennial white button down needs only a slight shift as seasons change. A long, drape-like cut in a soft fabric is both chic and functional. A mid-thigh or knee-length ensemble lends itself to beachwear and casual events. Dress it down with a swimsuit and sandals. Dress it up with a belt, wedges, and a statement necklace.

(Not) Your Mom’s Shorts:

Trade the typical short-shorts for a sturdier, unique pair. High-waisted, thick denim shorts are retro and laid-back. White jean shorts with sunflower print are fun and flirty. Find a pair of old Levis and cut them yourself! Shorts are a summermust; make them your own.

Sweet and Sheer:

Remember that clothes are meant to accessorize and accentuate the beauty that is already within you. This summer it’s time to let your outward adornments reflect your inner confidence.

Thin shawls add flair to a simple tank or dress. A semble for the beach and add a sweater when it gets cool. There are endless black sheer fabric embroidered with white flowcolors, cuts, and prints to choose from. ers is elegant. A knit blue shrug adds a homespun feel. Sheer, ankle length versions are a current trend. Whatever your vibe, there are plenty of styles to these light layers. I was recently told that shoulders are the only part of a woman that doesn’t age. Regardless of whether or not this is true, showing some shoulSundresses are universally flattering. Wear a mid-calf cut with short ruffled der skin has been a recent trend. Whether it’s an off-the shoulder blouse with blue and white stripes or a pink top with draping sleeves and spaghetti sleeves for a wedding or garden party. Don a floral maxi, jean jacket, and straps, it’s a nice way to keep cool during the summer. sandals for a dinner out with friends. Throw on a cotton empire-waited en-

Word on the Street by BILL MCCLELLAN

Syracuse – Standing Tall PREFACE One very important responsibility I have to you in this column is to never falsely offend. The substance of his article requires this explanation. A brief preface is necessary lest this article give an appearance of good governing by a dispassionate leader. Our Mayor Stephanie Minor has twisted law to make legal what otherwise is illegal. This caused a corruption that destroyed lives leaving suffering victims in dismay over the degree of unfairness and wrong. Our Mayor displaced several City and City Hall Employees with cruelty and unfair reason. Our Mayor insulted and then held vendetta against several Councilors of her own party for mere disagreement, which is the heart of our Democracy ( … and proceeded to ruin them). Our Mayor is not a good leader or a good person. She has, for selfish and revolting reason, forfeited the integrities of honorable democracy. She has abused her power and hurt many, purely without regard. She would change her Sanctuary City stance in less than a heartbeat if it were politically advantageous —without even looking back as the suffering went on. A selfish good deed does not lessen the guilt of one otherwise cruel.

When we pull out a single brown, the fabric falls into a heap. In Abraham Lincoln’s anti-slavery Cooper Union Address in New York City on February 27, 1860 – he concluded: LET US HAVE FAITH THAT RIGHT MAKES MIGHT, AND IN THAT FAITH, LET US, TO THE END, DARE TO DO OUR DUTY AS WE UNDERSTAND IT. The Arc of History bends toward Justice. It is basically an idea that although there are many bumps along the way and sometimes we go in the wrong direction on questions of civil liberties like the Dred Scott Decision; overall, when we look at history there is a forward progression in the direction of justice. Abraham Lincoln’s life and all great leaders since, in this ever so rare land, reflect this path. The errors in our Founding reveal the disturbing complexity of the human injustice of the times. The roots of evil had dug so deeply in our land that a horrible civil war, nearly a century after our Founding, was necessary for the honest pursuit of human justice to become compatible with the intent of this great land. We must never lose sight of that pursuit. The second paragraph in the Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that “All” Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Feb 14, 2014 Contradiction: ARTICLE I, SECTION 2, CLAUSE 3 --- Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including “those bound to Service” for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons. Contradiction: ARTICLE 4, SECTION 2, CLAUSE 3 --- Fugitive Slave Clause --- No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in Consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, but “shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due”. Benjamin Franklin wrote following Negotiations in London in 1775: “A little before I left London, being at the House of Lords during a debate in which Lord Camden spoke, I was much disgusted from the ministerial side by many base reflections on American courage, religion, and understanding, in which we were treated with the utmost contempt as the lowest of mankind, and almost of a different species from the English of Britain”. Benjamin Franklin was humiliated at this meeting of the elite British Privy, (advisors to the King). With great irony, yet without comparable merit at the time, they forced upon this continued on pg 38

Syracuse – Standing Tall continued from pg 36 Founding Father the feelings of injustice and inferiority felt by slaves. It was at this meeting that Benjamin Franklin became a Revolutionary. Slaves had no recourse but servitude or die. On September 18, 1850 one of many horrible laws was passed. It was referred to as the Fugitive Slave Law. Also referred to as the “Bloodhound” law for the dogs that were used to track down runaway slaves. The law required that Northerners who opposed slavery participate in the hunting down of runaway slaves and the returning of them to bondage. Once returned, they were subject to torture or death or being worked to death as a slave-holders twisted example. Syracuse, like many Northern cities refused to obey this law. Syracuse was first among the northern cities in its opposition to the Fugitive Slave Law. All the men of color who worked on the canals, and in the shops as citizens of Syracuse were Syracuse citizens. And Syracuse would not abide by a law that would require these Northern men to live by Southern values, “Period.” The law itself was designed to take those who opposed slavery and turn them into slave Hunters. Abraham Lincoln had it right when he said “there is a right and a wrong to the thing.” Northerners were repulsed by Southerners enslaving their fellow man and they would not participate. This was asking too much. Again, “Period.” With the election of President Trump apparently a majority of the Electoral College has determined that we are now a country that does not want Brown immigrants and wants to send them back. To majorities in the great middle portion of this country that supported Trump this seems like justice, but to those of us in the Northeast and elsewhere, the actual majority of Americans, this seems to betray who we are. We can accept President Trump is our President and that he has the right to propose laws and have them passed if he can get a majority of the Congress to agree with him, but it is an entirely different thing to say that we have to become slave hunters. When the police officers we pay are required to grab every Brown citizen they stop and ask them to show their papers, we become the slave hunters and our dollars are used to put chains on our fellow

Like our forefathers before us, we draw a line around our City and say this far and no further. In our city, victims of a misguided and dispassionate government, don’t have to worry about becoming victims of the “Good.” Our Police do not have to enforce and be part of crime against humanity. Syracuse has a heroic and proud history of protecting people against the ravages of inequality. Long before the Civil War Syracuse had become a vital link in the Underground Railroad. Slaves from all over the country came through Syracuse en route to Freedom in Canada. Underground Railroad “Stations” were clandestinely hidden throughout Syracuse and nearby towns.

Frederick Douglas and Harriett Tubman were among the Central, New York unsung heroes that silently protected those escaping the evil in humanity that had diminished them. On October 1, 1851 William “Jerry” Henry, a slave escaping captivity, was found by authorities and arrested in Syracuse. To his good fortune an anti-slavery convention was being held in Syracuse on that same day. As “Jerry” lay despairing in his jail cell, pondering the punishment and pain that lay in his captured future, heroes of the day were at work. That same evening several hundred abolitionists stormed the Jail, freed Jerry and saw to his safe transport through the Underground Railroad system to freedom. Fast forward 166 years: Laws regarding immigration and proper vetting to insure safe American assimilation and deporting “serious criminals” make good moral, just and safe sense. It is our insistence on punishing those that are already here as a result of decades of welcoming attitudes that is so brutally wrong. Especially in the age of “Trump” where things are not thought out. Innocence will be swept up experiencing the terror of far lessor lands. Personal prejudices among localities and enforcers will be determinates rather than humane and American thought out rules. This makes Sanctuary Cities a crucial and tragic requisite as we have become perpetrators of the very kinds of “human rights violations” that we condemn around the world. A great fault in the media is that they overlook history. Their pursuit of ratings has ruined the influences this country needs. History is Destiny. Where have they been for 70 years? Every American should know this. Mexicans were as much American heroes of World War II as anyone from the Greatest Generation in support of the War. Their purpose was as important as Rosie the Riveter to the war effort. Together they insured the food supply and the strength of the U.S. economy during the War years. We recruited them by the 10’s of thousands. Legality did not matter. America wanted and needed them. In the years after the war illegal immigration was of little concern, as they were wanted and welcomed by the corporate world and leaders of the time. They were Heroes. By the end of the Korean War, illegal immigration had become a fixture of the U.S. agricultural economy. Establishing roots and families was a natural consequence. “What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence or lawlessness, but love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice towards those who still suffer within our country.” Robert F. Kennedy, 1968 Speech on the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Indianapolis, Indiana 166 years after “Jerry” was rescued and 152 years after slavery was abolished we still live in a land where others are viewed as unwelcome. We have a dark side that we must never lose sight of less it overwhelm. This deportation issue involving as many as 20 million Mexicans is very dark and very disturbing. They all must live in fear. Apart from the absolute absurd departure from the American way, their heroic contribution during World War II is all but forgotten. This human unfairness diminishes what we fought for. This is not what we do. At least not in the America I try so hard to believe in. In any instance, where we sublimate another human being we are failing every hope there is for this land to be a beacon for mankind. The Equality embraced in our Constitution gave birth to the hope that mankind could one day live together in peace. When we fail this great intent, hope is gravely dimmed and differences metastaThe Equality embraced in our Consize, and the quality of mankind is stitution gave birth to the hope diminished. I am proud to live in a that mankind could one day live City that will not be a part of such together in peace. things. Syracuse is “Walking Tall.”
