Cazenovia lakeside residents soon may be able to rent from the town specialty mats designed to contain and kill lake weeds — both invasive and native — on their property in Cazenovia Lake.

Cazenovia Artisans last week began its first-ever fundraising endeavor with a three-week celebration of horses in fine art and craft.
