The ceremony was held at the NYSAC Fall Seminar in Rochester last month. The educational program is a collaboration between NYSAC and Cornell University to provide training to county leaders. Curriculum includes required courses on building consensus, financial management, ethics, management, and the foundations of county government. “Recognizing that counties are the cornerstone of any governmental structure, I heartily recommend this curriculum to anyone who serves in any public capacity,” said McCafferty. McCafferty began her career as an Environmental Sanitarian. Subsequently, she has worked in all aspects of Public Health: disease control and surveillance, environmental protection, personal health; in both the public and private sectors. “County leaders graduate from the Institute's vigorous curriculum equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the increasing demands of local government leadership - now and in the future,” said NYSAC Executive Director Stephen J. Acquario. Empowering county leaders to engage in civil and constructive dialogue

on the challenges they face, the Institute serves as a platform throughout the State to meet and discuss the unique issues of county government. Charles H. Nesbitt Jr., NYSAC President and Chief Administrative Officer of Orleans County, encourages county leaders like Gates to participate in Institute to work collaboratively to learn and develop solutions and strategies for local government. “Graduating from the County Government Institute demonstrates a distinct and special commitment to public service at the local level,” said Nesbitt. CGI courses are offered at NYSAC’s Fall Seminar in addition to an annual Legislative Conference in February, and Finance School in May. Courses are also offered regionally throughout the year to enable county leaders to stay up-to-date on timely issues and opportunities in local government. “CGI facilitated my learning about New York's county structure, I especially valued the ‘Foundations of County Government’ and ‘County Budget & Finance’ core courses,” said McCafferty. Elected and appointed county officials can register for the Institute and actively participate in its programs, policy forums and informational sessions.

Dear Apalachin Taxpayers: As we all enjoy the last few days of summer and look forward to the changing leaves ushering fall in, the fire district heads into our busy season with local events and budget season upon us. First though, I’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate six volunteer firefighters from Apalachin who completed the annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at the Binghamton State Office Building. Lieutenant Joe Opper, FF Colton Washburn, FF Colton Luker, FF Lewis Race, FF Zack Wilt, and FF Emma Roden climbed 110 flights of stairs with bunker gear and SCBA; 110 flights being the equivalent of the stairs in the original Twin Towers. Wearing the names and photographs of some of the 343 firefighters that died in the terror attacks of September 11th, they honor the memory of all of those that perished that fateful day. As September draws to a close, the Fire Commissioners are busy working on our budget for 2019. In short, we have every intention of remaining within the 2% property tax limit. There are some additional unfunded mandates that we’ve received from Albany. Most impactful will be a new requirement to purchase cancer insurance for all experienced interior firefighters. While no one likes unfunded mandates, this bill was supported by the NYS Association of Fire Districts as firefighters face an exponentially higher risk of cancer than civilians. First year costs are unknown today but anticipated to be between

$2,500 - $6,000 for 2019. Additional budget items include funding our capital reserve accounts for buildings, equipment, and vehicles. These reserve accounts allow the district to replace obsolete equipment and vehicles on a scheduled basis without the need to borrow each time. This method of financial planning ensures that taxpayers save on interest expenses and stabilize tax rates to be consistent year to year versus big swings associated with debt payments. Looking ahead to October, I hope you all will join us during Fire Prevention Week on Wednesday October 10th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Station 1 for an open house. We’ll be serving cider and donuts, doing station tours, and signing up new members. This is a great way to engage with your volunteers, learn more about how we protect you, and to see how you can help your community by volunteering. In addition, we’ll be supporting other local charity events such as the Tracie’s Hope event on October 6th and the Apalachin Lion’s Club 5K October 13th. For AES students, we’ll see you at Trunks-of-Treats on the 26th. Any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out. We look forward to seeing you all in October! Sincerely, Brian Rieber Chairman, Board of Fire Commissioners Apalachin Fire District 607-765-2974 chairman@apalachinfd.com

The Ti-Ahwaga Community Players upcoming production of the hit Broadway musical “The Full Monty” will be held October 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 8:00 pm, and October 7, 14, and 21 at 2:00 pm. Nominated for nine Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway in October of 2006, the show has a book by Tony award winning playwright Terrance McNally with music and lyrics by David Yazbek. “The Full Monty” is the story of six unemployed, out of shape steel-mill workers from Buffalo who need to pick

up some extra cash. After seeing the popularity of a male stripper among the local women, the men decide to put on a strip show of their own. Their gimmick is simple: they will go the full monty— stripping on stage. This plan forces the men to come to terms with their own fears of inadequacy, both physically and as providers for their families. Tickets for the production are $27 for adults under the age of 60 and $22 for seniors. Visit www.tiahwaga.com or call 6872130 to reserve your seats.

Authentically Rural Weekend to Explore Rural Heritage You are invited to celebrate Tompkins County’s rural heritage. On the first-ever Authentically Rural Weekend, October 5-7, 2018, Ithaca Heritage welcomes residents and visitors to explore Tompkins County’s rural heritage. A Finger Lakes wine and paired tastings reception kicks off the weekend on Friday, October 5, followed the next day by rural heritage tours of farms and rural landmarks in Dryden, the Dryden Homestead Heritage Fair Day, and a farm-to-bistro harvest dinner at Coltivare on Saturday, October 6. The weekend closes with a homestead brunch at the Schickel family’s Maryhill Farm in Dryden on Sunday, October 7. The weekend is a New York State Path Through History Weekend. Ithaca Heritage (ithacaheritage. com) has organized the weekend to showcase Tompkins County’s enduring rural heritage and its continuing impact on our cultural and economic vitality. Ithaca Heritage is a heritage tourism collaboration between Historic Ithaca and The History Center in Tompkins County to attract visitors to our region through guided and self-guided tours and other events. Primarily focused on vibrant rural areas in Dryden this year, the biannual event will spotlight other areas in the county in subsequent years. The weekend coincides with the Dryden Town Historical Society’s Dryden Homestead Heritage Fair Day on Saturday, October 6, with a chance to enjoy rural heritage crafts, traditional music, and local food vendors.

Each event gives participants an opportunity to appreciate how vital rural areas are to our county’s cultural life and how these traditional lifeways have evolved. A morning guided bus tour on Saturday, October 6, explores both a large-scale farm and a smaller one and includes an architectural history tour of the Village of Freeville. An afternoon tour takes visitors to a heritage homestead that dates back to the early 19th century and includes stops at two unique octagonal structures: a restored octagonal barn and a living history schoolhouse. Saturday’s harvest dinner showcases the farm-to-bistro program at Coltivare, run by Tompkins Cortland Community College. At the dinner, Firelight Camps CEO Bobby Frisch, whose ecotourism company has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Conde Nast Traveler, speaks about how he helped turn an underutilized rural site into a haven for an “elevated camping” experience. Sunday’s homestead brunch at Maryhill Farm in Dryden completes the weekend events with a meal catered by Serendipity Catering. Schickel Construction founder Bruno Schickel discusses how his parents founded and ran the farm and how he and his siblings are keeping the farm in the family. Tickets can be purchased for individual events or as a full weekend package at www.ithacaheritage.com/ authentically-rural-weekend.

Kristina’s pollinator garden at Waterman Center in Apalachin. by Kristina Knight

My name is Kristina Knight and I am a 9th year Girl Scout. I am working on earning my Gold Award, which is the highest service award a Girl Scout can earn. I just recently completed my Gold Award Project – a pollinator garden at Waterman Conservation Center in Apalachin. About a year ago I heard in the media that bees were in decline. About 1/3 of our food comes from bees, so they are a huge part of our ecosystem. Bees are responsible for pollinating blueberries, apples, oranges, peaches, corn, coffee, and many other foods we eat daily. Bees are in trouble because of pesticides, climate change, poor nutrition, and many other reasons that humans have an effect on. Because of that, I decided that for my project I would plant a pollinator garden grown with

plants that are native to New York to provide a source of food for the pollinators. I made sure to plant perennials so that they will grow back every year. My garden is located at Waterman Conservation center in a 20x60 foot space that was originally intended for a butterfly garden. I seeded the plants in March and transferred them to my garden in July. I also got plant donations from Nanticoke Gardens and Farmer Browns Marketplace that I put in my garden. I mulched over the plants to prevent weeds from growing. I placed signs to identify each plant. On August 23 I had an unveiling and invited the kids from the Nature Camp from Waterman. I taught them about the bees and gave them each a perennial plant and an informational brochure to take home.

Candor Historical Society Participates in Candor’s 2018 Fall Festival The Candor Historical Society will hold their annual Bake Sale and Christmas Market during Candor’s Fall Festival of Events on Saturday, October 6, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, at their new location on 25 Main Street. This year the Candor Historical Society is also participating with the NY Path Through History Weekend (www.paththroughhistory.ilove ny.com), and will hold an open house for those who want to enjoy a few reminiscences, check out the status of the center, or discover ways in which they can help the historical society succeed in their most recent endeavor. Although the Candor History Center is not up to snuff and not ready to open to the public on a regular basis, this historic location has played a big part in Candor’s agricultural history. The Candor Historical Society is working hard to assemble and organize a multitude of records, and a few displays, but there is still much to be done. A separate ac-

count is being set up to handle donations, grants, etc. specifically for their capital project. The open house will display various poster presentations depicting Candor’s 200-year history in Tioga County. The tour will include the second floor where the Candor Masonic Lodge presently holds their meetings. Unlike other events, there is no ‘big’ yard sale this year, and there will be no drop-off of useable items. However, the bake sale is a major source of income for annual maintenance, so anyone wishing to donate baked goods, can drop them off, starting at 8:00 am on Saturday morning. Carol’s Books will also on hand to include her Candor history books, as well as her latest novels. Candor Historical Society promotional items will be available for purchase. And coffee is on the house - enjoy a cup while you browse.

Drumbeats Through Time - Oct. 6 The 15th annual Drumbeats Through Time will be held on Saturday, October 6, at the Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) at 358 Broad Street in Waverly. The event is free to attend and doors open to the public at 1:00 pm. There will be speakers and presentations from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. At 4:00 pm the Seneca Dancers will perform. SRAC’s Dr. DeeAnne Wymer and Dan Caister will present “The 2018 Field Season Findings at The Desisti Site: A Tale of Two Occupations.” The presentation will illustrate the unique items being excavated at the site this year and what findings have been revealed using scientific carbon dating methods. At 2:00 pm, past NYSAA President Dr. Bill Engelbrecht will present ” Early Late Woodland Pottery from Northwest Pennsylvania.” Current terminology used to describe ceramics in the Northeast presents a challenge for both avocational and professional. In some cases two or more ceramic type descriptions overlap while in other cases type names in different areas describe similar material. Some types describe ceramics used for a long period of time, rendering them poor temporal indicators. Using an attribute approach provides a clearer picture of individual specimens but renders comparison with ceramics from other sites problematic unless they are described using the same system. This

presentation describes ceramics from a pre-Iroquoian multi-component site in northwest Pennsylvania using a revised ceramic typology coupled with an attribute approach. At 3:00 pm, SRAC’s David Moyer will present, “Prehistoric and Early Historic Native Landscapes in the Upper Susquehanna Valley.” The late prehistory and early history of the Upper Susquehanna Valley has created a unique landscape that has presented many challenges to archaeologists. In the 1300s and 1400s the region boasted a large population of prehistoric farmers. It appears that the valleys were then abandoned until the late 17th and early 18th centuries, when the Susquehanna and Chemung valleys were occupied by Native refugees from other regions displaced by war and European encroachment. These village communities continued to expand throughout the 18th century until the outbreak of the American Revolution when these settlements were abandoned. At 4:00 pm, Seneca Native American historian Dick Kane will give a presentation on the cultural history of the Seneca. Mr. Kane will display authentic cultural items and discuss their significance. At 4:00 pm, the Seneca Dancers will perform, sharing their culture, music, and dance.The Seneca dancers have been a very popular part of SRAC’s Annual event for over a decade.
