Tait funeral license lawsuit against department of health argued in state supreme court

More than two years after pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges of misconduct while running his Cazenovia funeral home, Brian Tait is back in court again. This time, he is the petitioner, bringing suit against the state Department of Health for reneging on what Tait claims was an approved deal regarding the suspension of his funeral directing license. Rather than a six-month suspension, the state is now looking to revoke his license altogether and decertify his funeral home. Attorneys for Tait and the DOH appeared in state supreme court Thursday morning, March 5, to argue their cases in front of Judge Hugh A. Gilbert.

After spending two months crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Germany, waiting in the port of New York City and braving the cold and snowy roads of Upstate New York, The Wolf recently arrived in Cazenovia.

Think it’s cold now? Dave Shephard can tell you a story about February 1934

School administration says: No increase in state funding means definite district program cuts

The Cazenovia school district administration last week discussed the current estimates for its initial 2015-16 budget and Assistant Superintendent Bill Furlong said he feels “pretty comfortable” that all current district programs will be maintained — as long as Cazenovia receives at least half of its expected state aid funding, or $450,000. If Gov. Andrew Cuomo decides to eliminate state education aid increases this year, the effects will be “devastating” to Cazenovia, and will result potentially in the loss of some district programs and possibly high school electives, and an increase in elementary class sizes, Furlong said.
