It’s time to move the brewery project forward

EDITORIAL

The May 6 village board public hearing on the Empire brewery proposal was the most interesting and illuminating to date. After listening to Katleski’s presentation and then reviewing all the studies, drawings, photos and other new information in the planning board’s Empire Brewing Company files, our conclusion is that all the major concerns and issues raised in the past three months have been more than adequately addressed, and this project will be a benefit to the community.

Senior Fair draws record crowd

The Senior Fair, which took place this year on Sept. 27 in the Horticultural Building at the New York State Fairgrounds, was originated back in 2004 when State Sen. John DeFrancisco saw a need to bring seniors together, not just for fun and entertainment, because there is plenty of that, but for all the information and help they might be seeking from the people and the organizations who routinely address seniors' special interests.

High school trip to Peru interrupted by terrorism threat

Parents criticize school district for lack of adult supervision in dangerous area

As a group of 27 students and four chaperones from Cazenovia High School were six hours into their flight to Lima, Peru, on Feb. 13 for a winter recess trip, the school district received an email from the U.S. State Department that terrorist groups had threatened to kidnap Americans traveling in the exact locations the school group intended to visit. The ultimately revised trip itinerary led to hours of free “down time” for the students that one parent claimed resulted in a severe lack of supervision to the point of possible negligence and child endangerment, considering the terror threats in the region that caused the schedule changes.

CPF has concerns over potential Trush property development

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: The Cazenovia Preservation Foundation shares the views expressed in the paper that appropriate development with something more befitting Cazenovia holds large potential benefit for the community. As the owner of trails and property directly behind and accessed from the Trush property, CPF cannot simply rely on the developer's desire to improve the property (which I know is sincere). We need to understand what's being proposed and how it might affect CPF's ability to fulfill its mission before we can support a development proposal.

Our plan was to contribute to our local community and economy by developing a beautiful farm winery that produced and sold local products. We also hoped to create a business for our family. It was never our intention to cause any concerns or disruptions for our neighbors.
