Trout Unlimited is protecting your local stream

GUEST COLUMN

The Madison County Trout Unlimited Chapter 680 will begin monitoring Chittenango creek starting in March. A program instituted at the national level encourages chapters to be proactive on tracking changes in local streams. Much concern for the streams began when hydrofracking became more prevalent throughout the country. Other possible contamination sources are industrial, agricultural or unforeseen random events.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Cazenovia Community Preschool, its board of directors and 2015 planning committee would like to express heartfelt thanks to the community for supporting the second annual Gala at Lincklaen, held Friday, March 6. Once again the event was sold out and proved to be a night to remember.

Congratulations to students on a great musical production

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the High School Drama Club's production of “Singin’ in the Rain.” Our congratulations to all the students, their teachers, and their parents — all of whom obviously devoted long hours to preparing this marvelous performance.

What a show!

Editorial

Last weekend’s high school drama club production of “Singin’ in the Rain” was an amazing production of great acting, well-executed singing and dancing and impressive live orchestral accompaniment. All the performers in the show, musicians in the pit, stage and production crews and production staff deserve the standing ovation they received Saturday night, and can be rightly proud of an impressive accomplishment.

Reminiscences of Cazenovia: Life in the 50s and 60s – Part 2 of 2

At the east side of the north block of downtown Cazenovia in the 50s and 60s was Mulligan’s Imported Woolens. Mulligan’s had a high stamped tin ceiling and shelf after shelf of fine sweaters and scarves. Ed Daley worked there for years. It is still going. The place has not changed much in more than 100 years.

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

If you mentioned to Cazenovia resident David Shephard how cold it was at the start of this past February, he will point out that the start of February 1934 was even colder. In fact, the first two weeks of February 1934 were colder than 2015. Dave won't tell you this because he remembers that February, but it was a pretty important time in his life, nonetheless.

GUEST COLUMN

Cazenovia in the 1950s and 60s was a wonderland for kids. Its rich environment surely made it one of the best places in the country to spend your childhood.

Cook family thanks community for its support

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Cazenovia community: It has taken me a while to write this note of thanks to all of you who have been so supportive of our journey from Oct. 4, 2014, through now. As most of you know, that is the date my soul mate of more than 50 years was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed from this life to his eternal home on Dec. 10, 2014.

From the Perrson family: Every adventure has an end

Every adventure has an end; it is time for us to move back to Sweden. We came to the U.S. and Cazenovia in October 2012 from Sweden on a two-year expat contract due to Saab’s acquisition of Sensis. The fact that we ended up in Cazenovia was a coincidence, and through pure luck we found a house to rent.

Support the movement to eliminate the GEA

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Our local school district has done its part. We have lost more than $6 million in state aid and as a result we have raised taxes, cut programs and, most importantly, used our “rainy day” reserves, a concept too often lost on our politicians, so that we are now essentially broke. We have bailed out Wall Street and we have bailed out New York State with respect to their commitment to education. Yet the “temporary” GED remains.

Will we sit back and watch as our schools are decimated by the GEA?

GUEST COLUMN

On Jan. 30, I was privileged to help supervise 50 Cazenovia High School students who joined more than a dozen other local citizens at forum held by representatives of Governor Cuomo to present his budget and other proposals. The audience was respectful but intense. They asked hard questions, such as, “Why is there a ‘Gap Elimination Adjustment’ when there is no gap in the state budget, but rather a surplus?” to which they got few answers. More than two weeks later, we still haven’t gotten any answers, or even a response, to the questions that were posed both verbally and in writing. The message below is from my follow-up communication to the governor’s staff:

To the editor: It was a brisk Saturday morning, Jan. 24, when 100 women arrived at The Lincklaen House to attend the Cazenovia YoungLife Women’s Basket Brunch. This wonderful event raised $7,000, which is very exciting as it will provide a portion of YoungLife’s financial needs here in our community.
