Cazenovia Middle School students get safety tips at recent assembly
Wendy Fical likes to start her middle school presentations about Internet safety with a story about a teen who scored the winning touchdown at his latest football game. The boy loves online gaming, and tells one of his online partners that his team won 21-20 in their division championship game. That doesn’t seem like excessive personal information, right? But from just that little amount of information, the teen’s male online gaming partner used the Internet to find out enough information about the boy to show up at his house. That is just one of thousands of examples that Fical, a program director with the national Center for Exploited and Missing Children, has told middle schoolers about how even the most basic of personal information they put out onto the Web can be used unsavory and dangerous people.

Chittenango ovate amber snails coaxed into reproduction at SUNY ESF
Scientists from SUNY ESF made history today after releasing into the wild at Chittenango Falls State Park 200 endangered Chittenango ovate amber snails that were bred and grown in captivity. These rare, delicate snails, that measure about 1 millimeter in length when first hatched and grow up to 20 millimeters in length as adults, can be found in only one place on Earth — alongside this Central New York waterfall. And until today, there were only about 300 of them in the wild.

An auditor from the New York State Comptroller’s Office recently spent more than one month working in a makeshift office in the Cazenovia Central School District offices reviewing the finances of the district to ensure that Cazenovia is spending its money responsibly. The state audit was not the result of any district incompetence or malfeasance — and the results showed none of either — but rather from the Comptroller’s determination that Cazenovia CSD is suffering from “moderate” fiscal stress.
