When you walk into Baldwinsville’s Canal Walk Cafe, you’re surrounded by the talents of local artists in a variety of media: culinary, crafting and paintings just to name a few. What you may not know is that one of those artists responsible for the eclectic and eye-catching decor is also involved in dishing up your palate’s preference. Meet your server, Jackie Colello, a gifted painter whose passion involves another kind of palette: color.
To the editor: Dear Oswego Sub Shop Patrons, Community Members, and Friends: In November 2013, the Oswego Sub Shop was contacted by the United States Secret Service and identified as a possible common point of purchase of a credit card breach (hack). They informed us that our computers may have been compromised resulting in the unauthorized use of customers credit card information.
To the editor: Christmas has come and gone. But the spirit of Christmas still lingers here at Baldwinsville Meals on Wheels. When we visit the homes of our clients we see the evidence of generosity from the community we live in. We would like to thank everyone for the continuing support that enables our program to continue.
To the editor: I write to express dismay at the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority and their apparent disinterest in ensuring that 45 current concession workers at the Syracuse-Hancock International Airport keep their jobs. What’s done appears done.
After taking a 15-year hiatus, Dr. Joanne Bowen is back in business. In November, Bowen joined the staff at Willow Health and Wellness Center, located at 8090 Belgium Road in Baldwinsville, where she returned to work in her field of expertise: chiropractic care. She initially practiced in Rochester and then relocated to serve patients in Weedsport for 10 years.
St. Mary’s Academy girls’ basketball team wins season for the first time ever
St. Mary’s Academy girls’ basketball team went 13-1 this season, winning its league as well as two outside tournaments — neither of which had ever been done before. It was also the first year in a long time the parochial school had enough girls to form a team of their own. Before, they had to play with the boys.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Surgeon General’s report on Smoking and Health. That report, issued in 1964, was the first federal government report linking smoking to ill health, including lung cancer and heart disease.
I only write columns for the paper when I really have something to say; and while I have no bylines in this week’s paper (because I was on vacation last week) the one thing I wanted to write for this issue was that I am shaving my head (and possibly my beard and mustache) for the March 16 St. Baldrick’s fundraising event in Cazenovia, and I hope as many people as possible will participate or contribute.
Barclay bill would penalize dealers, users of synthetics to prevent further addiction, deaths
Assemblyman Will Barclay (R,C,I—Pulaski) was joined by fellow lawmakers from the state senate and assembly and Upstate Poison Control officials at a March 4 press conference to ban synthetic drugs. Joining these officials at the press conference was Teresa Woolson and her family, who are advocating for stronger laws regarding synthetic drug use. In 2012, Woolson’s son, Victor, died from injuries related to synthetic drug use.
As controversies over Common Core and mandated standardized tests become more and more prevalent, many parents are choosing a new option in educating their children: homeschooling. Once the sole province of the very religious, homeschooling is becoming more popular every day, with a growth rate of 7 to 15 percent per year. Nationwide, about 2 million children learn at home instead of in a brick-and-mortar school, up from about 1 million in 2003. According to the U.S. Department of Education, about 88 percent of U.S. homeschool parents express concern about the school environment, citing drugs, negative peer pressure and general safety.

Picture yourself clambering over ancient Mayan pyramids deep in the jungle, scrambling up an active volcano or wandering through orderly rows of red berried coffee trees.
Kinship caregivers get support through statewide program, private pro bono clinic
When parents can no longer take care of their children, what happens next? Many times, relatives will step in, typically grandparents, to raise their son or daughter’s family. The reasons for kinship care are multiple and rarely, if ever, positive.
Mickey Broome recalls life as one of B’ville’s first black men
When Mickey Broome entered the Oswego Street home of his longtime friends, Frank and Donna O’Donnell, he came with homemade treats in hand. Giving Donna a salty snack he made himself, Broome took a seat beside me at one of their kitchen stools, introduced himself and settled into a mid-morning chat so I could learn more about the life of one of the first black men to call this community home.
