The Comeback Kids: 40 Below re-energized and ready (again) By Ami Olson Six years ago, young professional organization 40 Below held its first annual summit, sparking a discussion among more than 600 community members about what needed to be changed in Syracuse, and how to do it. By the time last year’s summit rolled around -- the fifth annual congregation the group had organized -- not only were people continuing the dialogue, there was well-publicized tangible evidence that 40 Below had been committing sweat equity to Syracuse. In 2006, the 40 Below Marketing and Communications committee sparked an inyour-face guerilla marketing campaign and launched the “Live it. Love it. It’s all here.” branding effort. 40 Belowers created Lipe Art Park from an abandoned train yard and began cleaning out the city-owned Wilson Building in the hopes of sparking a movement. But this year, for the first time since 2004, 40 Below did not hold a summit. The group’s website offers outdated and incorrect contact information for many leaders. By the end of August, the art park was overgrown and riddled with litter, and three years into the Wilson Building project the building is still uninhabitable. Yet the same issues identified at that first summit remain, “brain drain” and an overall lack of pride in Syracuse among them. So, whatever happened to 40 Below?

Congressman Dan Maffei, center, speaks with participants at last year’s 40 Below “Cinco de Summit,” the fifth annual convention sponsored by the non-profit group. Former steering committee chair Dominic Robinson is pictured second from right. The 2009 summit was the last one held, but the group plans to renew the summits with a state-wide event in 2011. photo 40 Below

On the surface, it seemed 40 Below had given up. “Unfortunately, we get that a lot,” said Dominic Robinson, a member and former chair of the steering committee. “One of our challenges is that we are almost entirely a volunteer organization. We don’t do a very good job all the time of translating that into an official marketing package. So there’s still a lot of activity, but it’s not always reflected.” But a new partnership with Centerstate CEO will be putting new staffers on the 40 Below roster, and Robinson said a totally revamped website will go live within three to five months, signalling (another) renewal for 40 Below. “It’s an ebb and flow; it’s a constant process of rebirth,” Robinson said. “I feel it’s in a healthy a place as its ever been.”

‘Healthier than ever’ The group was founded in 2004, but underwent major reorganization in 2007. By then, 40 Below’s presence was being felt throughout the city. An inaugural group of up-and-comers had been selected for the It’s All Here Street Re-energized and ready Team, charged with promoting 40 Below and In a way, 40 Below is all over the map.

Annual Sept. 11 ceremony at Fayette Firefighters Park

The City of Syracuse will hold its annual Sept. 11, 2001 Commemoration Ceremony beginning at 8:30 a.m. Saturday Sept. 11 at Fayette Firefighters Park. As has been the tradition with this ceremony, there will be no speeches or announcements. The public is invited to attend this outdoor event. The 17 minutes of silence represents the length of time between the first passenger jet striking the north tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. and the second passenger jet striking the south tower of the World Trade Center at 9:03 a.m. As is tradition, two pedestals will be erect-

ed by city skilled trades workers to represent the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The pedestals are 5 feet tall and made out of red cement blocks. Each has a flagstone top on which two specially designed 3-wick candles with sconces will be placed during the ceremony. Each wick when lit will commemorate the lives and the families of loved ones lost at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Flight 93 that crashed southeast of Pittsburgh. Also displayed at the commemoration site will be two flags titled ‘Flag of Heroes’ and ‘Flag of Honor.’ ‘The Flag of Heroes’ contains the names of all of the emergency service providers who gave their lives. ‘The Flag of Honor’ includes the names of all civilian victims of Sept. 11.

Get to school, safely

While we all hurry to get where we need to be on a daily basis, when school is in session it’s time to slow down for safety’s sake. With another school year just getting under way, it may mean timing your commute to and from work, daycare and errands around local school bus schedules. Most days, motorists will likely need to leave for their destination earlier than they would like so they don’t get stuck behind a bus and end up running late. That doesn’t mean drive like you are the only one on the road, though, as many children will be anxiously awaiting their yellow chariots near roadways or hopping down from the steps of a school bus eager to tell their parents all about their day. But motorists are not the only ones who need to pay attention to their surroundings when school is in session. Children do, too, and should be reminded of some bus stop etiquette and safety before boarding. For instance, children should always wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop before entering or exiting. If kids have to cross the street to get to the door-side of the bus, remind them to wait until the driver acknowledges them and motions for them to cross. Standing up in a moving vehicle is also ill advised — so, stay seated in order to avoid falling down. These are just some of the things parents can talk about with their children when it comes to bus safety, and we most certainly hope you will talk about it with your little ones this year. Getting to school is essentially a crucial part of each day for children, and we want to see them all arrive and leave in the safest way possible.

40 Below’s survival a tribute to Sryacuse This week’s cover story about 40 Below grew out of my own attempt to reacquaint myself with the organization. A visit to the website, 40belowsummit. com, made me question if the group was totally defunct: I was met with out-ofdate e-mail addresses, 100-day old Twitter updates and an empty events calendar. I ignored my concern that the effort From the had been deserted, or perhaps followed the thousands of recent college graduates who leave Syracuse for opportunities elsewhere, and tracked down Dominic Robinson, former steering committee chair. Robinson described the genesis of 40 Below as less of a long-term plan and more of a flash of inspiration. “Initially, 40 Below was this moment in time when all of these young people living in Syracuse were tired of hearing about people leaving,” he said. “They kind of pulled something together and all of a sudden you had the largest gathering of young professionals in New York State.” That “something” was the first-ever 40 Below summit, and while the group wasn’t entirely prepared to sustain its mission of “connecting, engaging and em-

powering young adults,” long-term, there was clearly a need for such a movement. While that somewhat spontaneous beginning led to some stops and starts, the group isn’t giving up. 40 Below is alive and well -- Robinson believes it’s healthier now than ever. But that doesn’t mean the group is immune to the same disease that has affected so many other organizations with dreams of revitalizing Syracuse: the burn-out. Robinson pointed out that groups like 40 Below need the input of a lot of individuals to be functional, let alone successful. The group’s dependence on volunteers means the workload of what could be just a handful of full-time staff members is instead divided and shared by many people willing to devote their personal time to the effort. And that often results in ultramotivated new members bringing in lots of energy, “going wild for a while,” then taking a back seat and passing the torch to the new blood. But Robinson said the turnover that 40 Below has seen in the last year has been a good thing. “In the process we’ve really engaged a whole new network of young leaders who now are picking up the ball and running with it,” he said. And more than a willingness to volunteer time and energy to the cause, those individuals are making a commitment

to the city, the community and themselves that they believe in the potential of Syracuse. That’s a lot to ask of any professional, young or otherwise, in any city. But in speaking with various task force leaders and Robinson himself, it was clear that these people are committed. Kelly Bayne, who co-chairs the civic engagement task force, is a native Syracusan who spent her undergraduate years in Schenectady. After graduation, Bayne said she moved back home “temporarily.” “But I got back here and was just like, Syracuse is my home,” she remembers. “The past three years have been me putting down roots here in Syracuse.” Sure, Syracuse has a long way to go, Bayne admits, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate what we already have, and let that propel us into creating more opportunity. “When I hear people say, ‘there’s nothing to do,’ I get so annoyed -- and just sad -- because it’s not true,” she said. But if you subscribe to the notion that there is a lack of activity, here’s something new to do: Bayne’s task force recently began holding informal social networking events the third Monday of each month. This month, find them at 5:30 p.m. Monday Sept. 20 at Funk N’Waffles. All are welcome, just show up to get involved.

Downtown After Dark

SU songstress leaves the hill for downtown debut A bright and bold new talent has emerged from a dusty dormitory room at Syracuse University. Her name is Sarah Elizabeth Aument. She wears her auburn locks in a pixie cut, but Aument’s a Goliath with a guitar in her hands. Barely 20, the girl sings as though she has weathered a lifetime of storms yet soldiers on gamely with a russtarby knowing glint in her eye. Her emotive voice recalls Kim Carnes on a good day, Lily Allen on a late night or a rough hewn version of Edie Brickell. To celebrate the release of her new CD, Vertical Lines, the Pennsylvania-born singersongwriter will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, at the Red House Arts Center, 201 S. West St., at the corner of West Fayette Street, on the outskirts of downtown’s Armory Square. Admission costs $5. For info, dial 425-0405.

Singer-songwriter Sarah Aument, a oneof-a-kind original, plays a CD release party at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, at the Red House.

Russ Tarby

‘Freak folk’ Hailing from Kennett Square, Penn., Aument started playing original music when she was 16. In the past four years or so, she has acquired a taste for indie folk rock that crosses into pop. She calls it “freak folk.” In December 2008, Aument teamed up with SU students Sam Mason and Dan Creahan to start O, Morning Records. In a small dorm room up on the hill, she recorded an EP entitled Wake Up Singing, released in March 2009. Since then she has partnered with band members Kevin Muldoon and Brian Ludwig to record Vertical Lines. Judging from her recorded tracks, Aument has struck gold with these guys. The musicianship is crisp and clever, the songs are vivid and diverse, and the arrangements are catchy as hell. “Broken Bottles” sparkles as a sharpedged sonic experience. Each note is meticulously produced with chimes, whistles and synthesizers complementing the usual rock instrumentation. Aument runs a gamut of vocal dynamics from a hoarse whispered intro to exuberantly shouting the chorus over a screaming electric guitar – then it all ends as suddenly as a bottle smashed against cement.

‘Couch Slouch’ “Couch Slouch,” punctuated with yodeled falsetto syllables, builds to an over-powering crescendo and an awful aural crash landing. The title track, “Vertical Lines,” begins with Aument strumming an acoustic guitar complete with fret squeak before finally rocking out over a snare-driven mid-tempo. On YouTube, you can watch Aument playing her six-string as she strolls down the streets of Annapolis, Maryland, with percussionist Harrison Willis. She’s singing an abbreviated ditty called “Big Old World.” Aument resembles a cross between a kewpie doll and Canadian actress Geneviève Bujold. That is to say her physical beauty mirrors her offbeat artistic aspirations. She’s not your typical girl next door. Aument is anything but typical. A tiny silver ring adorns her left nostril. She wears rainbow-colored bracelets and a big silver ring on her chording hand. On one of her videos, she looks comfortable performing in a salmon T-shirt with complementary pale purple bandanna around her neck. Her devil-may-care sense of style also surfaces in her music. While Aument lists influences such as Feist, Wilco, Radiohead, Bjork, Cat Power, Laura Veirs, Coldplay, Tegan and Sara, Carole King and Broken Social Scene, take it from me: Sarah Aument is already a one-of-a-kind original! Northbound Jugband rocks Al’s Another SU-oriented act, the Northbound Traveling Minstrel Jugband, was booked to play Sept. 8, at Al’s (no longer Awful) Whiskey & Wine Bar on South Clinton Street. The rockin’ jugband is also slated to

play Oct. 9 at the Westcott Comminuty center, on the city’s East Side. The Northbound Traveling Minstrel Jugband blends blues, rock, bluegrass, folk and even a dash of funk. The quartet features Aaron Gittleman (vocals/guitar/banjo/harmonica), Adam Cohen (guitar/mandolin), Lucas Sacks (bass/guitar) and Dan DiPasquale (drums). “We distill the sweet melodies and gritty roots of folk music into a heady brew of roughshod rock that’s equally at home on a spotlight-flooded stage or small coffeehouse,” Gittleman said. Northbound began performing in public at SU in the late fall 2008. After a busy summer of shows and recording, Northbound has returned to school this fall and partnered up with O, Morning Records to release its first full-length disc. Tenor Madness and tapas Tenor Madness – plectrum guitarists Hanna Richardson, Phil Flanigan and bassist Jared Mulcahy – perform from 6 to 10 p.m. every Friday in September, at L’Adour Restaurant Francais, 110 Montgomery St., downtown.  “Come for dinner or tapas or drinks – or all three,” Hanna advises. “Tell them you’re there to hear the music.” Be sure to catch Hanna’s devilish double entendres when she sings “Porter’s Love Song to a Chambermaid” by the ever-entertaining Fats Waller. For reservations, call 475-7653, or simply find a spot at the bar; ladour-com.wildtex. net. Welsh wizard on organ Sept. 12 South Wales native Byron Jones returns to Central New York at 7:30 p.m. Sunday,

Sept. 12, to perform a concert hosted by the Empire State Theatre and Musical Instrument Museum (the CNY Theater Pipe Organ Society). Jones will play the world-famous Syracuse Wurlitzer, at the New Times Theater in the Art & Home Center, at the State Fairgrounds in Geddes. Admission costs $15 for adults, $2 for children. For info, visit ‘Little Hot Mama’ Syracuse University marketing staffer Paula Meseroll has co-written an inspirational new online book called Little Hot Mama: The Flossie Turner Lewis Story. It focuses on Flossie, a black entertainer who performed on the carnival and chitlin circuits, in speakeasies and minstrel shows and in the swank nightclubs of Miami’s Overtown. Flossie was also a single mother who raised five children, but from the Deep South to Puerto Rico, Miami and Los Angeles, Flossie lived her life as a performer, a mother, and a woman who could neither read nor write. That was until she decided at the age of 65 to learn how. Flossie will join Meseroll here in Syracuse the week of Sept. 13 for International Literacy Week. While in the Salt City, she plans to record her signature tune – written for her when she was a child on the minstrel show circuit – “Happy as the Day Is Long,” for SU’s Belfer Archive. Syracuse Cinephiles Sitting Pretty The Syracuse Cinephile Society revs up its projector for its 2010 Fall Film Series starting with 1935’s Gilded Lily starring Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray, at 7:30 p.m. Monday Sept. 13, at the Spaghetti Warehouse, 689 N. Clinton St., near Syracuse’s Inner Harbor. Admission to each Cinephile screening costs $3, or $2.50 for Cinephile members. For info, call Spaghetti Warehouse at 475-1807.

CANCER BEWARE “I had cancer. Cancer never had me.” Yesterday, I got out my fishing rod. I couldn’t help thinking of everyone at HOA. It was last spring when I found out. I was overwhelmed, distraught – and scared. I thought my fishing days were over. Then I went to HOA. My medical team all said, “We have the technology to fight this thing!” and showed me the CyberKnife. It sounded scary, but when I learned how it worked and how safe it was, I had hope for the first time. Your attitude really inspired me, your staff always encouraged me and your plan of action worked. I may have had cancer, but cancer never had me. Today, my kids and I are heading up to the lake.

It occurs to The Informer that someone needs to show Andrew Cuomo where the problems are in this state. It’s not the New York State Fair. The Democrat attorney general was in town this week looking for political support in his bid to be governor after establishing the Fair as the target of a corruption probe into age-old hiring practices. If he wants to do some resume polishing, he’d do better to start probing the mischief and misfeasance in Albany. That’s where the big problems exist. Picking the Fair as a political target says nothing about how he would govern or behave. -Democrat New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli is being accused of being party to the underfunding of the New York State Pension Fund that, if left unchecked,  will require massive tax increases. That’s the allegation by Republican comptroller candidate Harry J. Wilson. Wilson released a 50-plus-page white paper entitled: “New York Pensions: Averting The Looming Tax Catastrophe.” He urges in the paper “an honest accounting of New York’s pension problems in order to expose the true extent of our deficits, and a long-term collaboration with all stakeholders to return the Fund to fully funded status over time without requiring tax increases.” -Alfonse D’Amato, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are NOT running for attorney general in the state of New York. Nevertheless, Tarrytown Democratic Assemblyman Richard Brodsky – who IS running for attorney general – plastered photos of D’Amato, Hannity and Limbaugh across the




front of a recent campaign mailing, with the caption, “They Hate Richard Brodsky.” A vocal opponent of the Indian Point nuclear power plant, Brodsky prefers to run against right-wing idealogues rather than run against his Democratic Primary opponents, Sean Coffey, Eric Dinallo, Kathleen Rice and Eric Schneiderman. The funny thing is that D’Amato, Hannity and Limbaugh are each far better known than any of the Dem AG hopefuls, Brodsky included. -How did Laura Mae Hawkins-Turner ever find time to raise her daughter and three sons? The lady – who passed Aug. 21 at Loretto at age 84 – was the 9th Ward’s Democratic Committee Chairwoman for more than two decades and an active member of PEACE, Inc., the Urban League, the NAACP and the Syracuse Black Leadership Conference. Hawkins-Turner’s organizational expertise was recognized by both Democrats and Republicans. Dem Mayor Lee Alexander appointed her to the Human Rights Commission. GOP County Executive John Mulroy appointed her to the county’s Citizen Advisory Committee. Dem Mayor Tom Young hired her as the city’s minority business enterprise specialist. When it came to her community, Laura Mae could never say “no.” She also served on the boards of directors for the Dunbar Community Center and Syracuse Health Center and was a member of the North Syracuse Lioness Club.

In brief Top national runner coaches programs at the Y

Kevin Collins became serious about training runners after he realized his expert advice paid off. Through questions alone, he helped one woman knock six minutes off her personal record in a marathon. Her continual contact with Collins eventually led him to train MAIN OFFICE 35 Oswego Street P.O. Box 210 Baldwinsville, NY 13027 (315) 638-0233 (315) 638-9871 FAX

her two days a week, just shy of a year. She knocked an hour and seven minutes off her marathon time in 10 months. Her 10k fell eight minutes; her 5k fell four. “And I said, ‘I’m sold’,” Collins said. He began working with more clients and opened his own business, 1st Marathon. In June, the YMCA of Greater Syracuse gave him an offer he couldn’t refuse. He was hired as its running director, a position created specifically for him. Collins works out of all three centers, including the East Area Y, the North Y and the Downtown Y. LIVERPOOL OFFICE

“Running is expanding nationwide,” he said. “People are finding in all the exercise they’re doing, it comes down to running as being the best weight loss and weight management tool.” The Y offers a 10-week beginner program, designed to introduce participants to basic training concepts for optimal fitness and development; and a 10-week intermediate/ advanced running program, which provides one weekday workout that includes variable hill repetitions, short/long interval and tempo-style workouts.


Both programs meet at 7 a.m. on Saturdays for a long run, which combines all runners from each Y to attend. The group meets either at Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool or at Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville. Collins also coaches the main marathon program, which stretches 20 weeks during the summer. He offers a winter program, too, but admits it’s intense and outdoors, typically for people who are on board as runners for life. - Tami S. Zimmerman

Good Sports ITC football debuts, stuns Black Knights 22-19


From the sports department

Due to the Labor Day holiday and logistical issues surrounding our pending move into our new offices, our coverage of the first two weeks of high school sports in our print editions will be abbreviated. However, full coverage continues on our website, so go to to find all the stories on football, soccer and other big games as the season gets underway.

Sporting a spiffy new Institute of Technology at Central football jersey last Thursday, Jebron Thomas couldn’t help but be filled with hope and excitement. The ITC football program was 24 hours away from kicking off their season at Tully, and the senior quarterback was anxious to have his season start. “We are very excited to finally be playing,” Thomas said. “But we can’t be too excited. We have to calm ourselves down and be ready to play and do what we need to do to win.” Thomas, proudly wearing his white away jersey as he attended the first-ever ITC girls volleyball game on Thursday, spoke with confidence about his team’s chances against Tully. The promise of a new season has that effect on a player. But for ITC, its season-

opener against Tully meant so much more. For the first time ever, the Eagles would play in a varsity game. After two seasons at the JV level, Thomas would play a game that matters. “We have been practicing hard,” Thomas said. “We’re well-prepared. We want to prove we are a successful team.” Against Tully, ITC showed it can compete at the varsity level and in the process made school history by earning a 22-19 victory over the Black Knights in thrilling fashion. With less than 40 seconds to play, ITC repelled a last-gasp effort by Tully and hung on for its program’s first win. Tully took its final possession after a fumbled punt at the ITC 25-yard line with 35.9 seconds left. But on the next four downs, the Eagles denied the Black Knights

access to the end zone. With no time left on the clock, Thomas knocked away a Marcus Warner pass in the end zone to secure the win. Thomas also scored on a two-yard run in the second quarter to help the Eagles. The Eagles survived a shaky start against the Black Knights. The Eagles fell into a 13-0 hole after Warner scored on a 3-yard quarterback keeper followed by a 65-yard Warner TD pass to Casey Jean in the first quarter. ITC running back Kasheim Jones scored ITC’s first-ever touchdown to make it 13-8. On the first play of ITC’s third possession, Jones took the handoff, cut back and zipped up the right sidelines for a 80-yard touchdown run. Warner picked apart the ITC secondary

with two long TD passes in the first half. But Warner injured his right wrist before halftime. He sat out Tully’s first two possessions of the second half before returning to direct the Black Knights. ITC took the lead for good at the start of the third quarter. Lineman Chris Myers scooped up a Tully fumble and returned it 19 yards for the go-ahead score. It was the only score of the second half. All the other city high school football teams debuted, too, with split results. In Saturday’s Kickoff Classic at the Carrier Dome, Corcoran, thought to be the favorite in the Class AA-2 division, beat Fowler 466, while Nottingham returned to the AA ranks with a 27-18 win over Central Square. Henninger opened on Friday night, losing to Fayetteville-Manlius 31-21.

ITC volleyball debuts with loss to Baldwinsville By Fran Piraino

Baldwinsville gave the Institute of Technology at Central a rude introduction to the world of CNYCL girls volleyball with a 25-8, 25-8, 25-10 victory in the season-opener for both teams Sept. 2. The game, played at Levy Middle School, marked ITC’s debut at the varsity level. Because of school renovations, ITC students will attend school and play games at Levy this year. The Bees, who have won or shared 16 straight league titles, were in charge from the start against ITC. Baldwinsville made a few early-season mistakes but proved to be the superior team on serve and at the net. Coach Mary Jo Cerqua has a solid core of highly-skill players at her disposal despite graduating four starters. Sophomore Sarah Klaben served up a team-high seven aces and made four kills. Sophomore hitter Allegra Bell, a returning starter, had four aces and four kills. Erica Miller added five aces. B’ville’s offense is in the capable hands of all-star setter Brianna Stewart. The senior distributed the ball for 14 assists against ITC. Last fall, the Bees went to the state Class AA finals but lost to Canandaigua, 3-1.

ITC girls volleyball varsity coach Jennifer Crawford and JV coach Eric Bramoff, above, talk to ITC players between games in their first-ever varsity match against Baldwinsville last Thursday afternoon. The Eagles are playing volleyball in the fall for the first time after two seasons in the winter at the JV level. It is the only girls sport offered at the school in the fall.

What ITC lacked in execution it made up for in hustle and athleticism against the Bees. The Eagles came up with some tough digs on powerful Baldwinsville spikes only

to eventually lose the point. ITC sophomore Al’Lysha Williams was well aware of Baldwinsville’s reputation as a volleyball power. Williams admitted it was nerve-wracking to play the Bees in their first-ever varsity game. “I haven’t seen anyone like them,” Williams said. “Their spikes are powerful. So were their serves.” ITC coach Jennifer Crawford was initially nervous about having to face the three-time defending sectional champ in ITC’s varsity debut. But Crawford came away encouraged by her team’s effort. “I thought we were going to lose 25-0 to them,” Crawford said. “I’m so excited because they were having fun out there. I’m excited because they stayed positive. I have an amazing group of girls.” Members of the ITC varsity team are senior Najah Amica, junior Tanesha Arroyo, senior Trishanna Bennett, senior Julianne Knittel, junior Lidia Mendoza, senior Ni’asia Mitchell, junior Kayla Precourt, senior Carleigh Raeford and Williams. Also on Thursday, Corcoran’s girls volleyball team swept Nottingham in three games 25-5, 25-9, 25-9.

Around Town CDS group to reopen former Syracuse Pottery mining site

After about 15 years of the site being closed, three business partners are seeking to reopen a plot of land on Pottery Road in Camillus that once provided quality clay for Syracuse Pottery Rich Canestrare, Nick DeSantis and Paul Skrupa, who make up CDS group, started


the land purchasing process when Syracuse Pottery went out of business. Since then they have had the clay tested. And they were amazed at what they found: testers have told them that they haven’t seen clay of such quality in 25 years. “In retrospective it was used for clay pots, so it must have been very high quality at the time,” Skrupa said. Skrupa said testing done by PW Laboratories found the clay to have potential uses in health care and cosmetics, as well

as construction. CDS group will work with the Clay Mineral Society, a universitybased international organization, to further evaluate potential uses for the clay. CDS Group has two specific sites in mind, which can be faintly seen from Matrix Turf Solutions. One is 1,500 feet from the road and the other, 650. DeSantis said the mining could potentially involve 339,000 cubic yards of clay and 25,000 cubic yards of topsoil. CDS Group would be permitted to mine 20 feet down.

The town of Camillus will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. Sept. 28 in the Camillus Municipal building to consider amending town code that would allow CDS Group to reopen the mining site. -Ned Campbell

In brief Eric Mower video up for national PR award

A video created by Eric Mower and Associates for client Legrand/Pass & Seymour has been named a finalist for a PR News Digital PR Award. The EMA/P&S video, “The Jobsite,” is one of eight finalists up for the award. Industry trade publication PR News will announce winners on Oct. 6. To raise awareness about the new P&S’ new PlugTail Switch and demonstrate

its technology in an engaging way, EMA and P&S launched an integrated marketing campaign, with the video serving as the main component. The campaign’s success helped P&S PlugTail sales expand to new markets and the company budgeted a 30 percent sales increase in 2009. Inspired by the hit television series “The Office,”“The Jobsite” provided more than just a visual step-by-step walkthrough of the switch installation, features, benefits and cost advantages. EMA and P&S told a story through video, with characters and construction-site humor making it funny, memorable and

true-to-life. “Even a year after it launched, the video continues to attract news coverage and comments from industry professionals,” said EMA’s John O’Hara. “The video was unlike anything seen before in the electrical marketing industry.” Watch “The Jobsite” online by searching “pass and seymour” at, or find the direct link to the video at --
