Beautiful baldness is returning to Cazenovia in just under three weeks when the St. Baldrick’s fundraiser to battle childhood cancer will occur at Burton Street Elementary School.

After 35 years working in the furniture industry, Shawn Gilmore knows what type of furniture business he wants to create — one that offers high-quality, hand-crafted furniture at mid-level prices in a good geographical location. Gilmore also wants a place where he can indulge his love of art and music and occasionally cater to non-profit organizations for events. At Route 20 Sofa Company in Nelson, Gilmore believes he has found what he has been seeking.

Four Cazenovia College students were arrested recently by Cazenovia police for allegedly stealing from and assaulting a village resident in what police suspect was a supposed payback for being “ripped off” during a drug deal.
