Town board meetings are supposed to be about governance, not politics. Unfortunately, it seems that the members of the Lysander Town Board seem to have forgotten that particular rule.
Many of us pass this area daily. Most of us use the services and businesses that are located here almost daily. What do you know about the buildings in the picture? What streets are seen here?
To the editor: I am not a taxpayer in the town of Lysander, as I do not live in the town. However, I was born and raised, graduated and lived in the town for more than 45 years, and most of my family still resides here. I went to the Lysander Town Board last year during budget time to ask for money to be put in the 2015 budget specifically for the Lysander Union Cemetery.
My 11th annual Senior Fair is quickly approaching. This free informational event for Central New York senior citizens will be held on from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29, in the Horticulture Building at the New York State Fairgrounds.
The Central New York economy has been changing for more than two decades, and the service and tourism industries are leading the way. Sales tax revenue generated by these emerging industries is funding county government more than ever before. Visitors — people who come here to spend their money in our hotels, restaurants and retail establishments, then leave — produce the best kind of revenue for the county.
Canton Woods continues to be busy into fall. All of our wellness programs have resumed after a brief summer break. Visit the center and see which of these classes is just right for you!
September is Library Card Signup Month. If you don’t have a card or haven’t used yours in years, now is the time to remedy the situation. It’s good in any public library in Onondaga County for checking out books and films, using computers and accessing information and assistance on almost anything you can imagine. Save time, money and clutter, get your library card and don’t leave home without it.
Eagle News redesigns, rebrands
After working throughout the summer on a new look and feel for our newspapers, I’m proud to announce in this week’s edition that the Baldwinsville Messenger and all of Eagle News’ weekly publications are launching redesigned newspapers with a modular advertising grid and expanded space for local content. Eagle is also rebranding itself under the moniker of Eagle News (formerly Eagle Newspapers) to better reflect our product line, which includes six community weekly newspapers, Syracuse Parent, Syracuse Woman Magazine, RealEstateCNY and 10 web sites.
Take a good look at this interesting picture. Can you give the year, the location, and the activity that was taking place in the background?
On Sept. 22, residents in Baldwinsville will head to the polls to decide if the North West Fire District can build a new fire station on Smokey Hollow Road in the village. Voting in favor of the NWFD’s proposition makes sense from a cost standpoint and a safety standpoint.
It is National Senior Center Month. It is a perfect time to reflect on the significant impact Canton Woods, a multipurpose senior center, has in the lives of Baldwinsville’s senior residents. The center provides recreation, socialization, nutrition, and wellness opportunities. Visit your senior center and start Celebrating LIFE today!
I was happy to attend the Onondaga County Traffic Safety Advisory Board press conference this past week as schools opened. The focus of the press conference each year is a reminder to slow down, be on the alert and stop for school buses with flashing red lights. It seems to me that this should be engrained in our minds, as this is for the safety of our children, but yet, some people persist in ignoring vehicle safety rules around school zones.
Storytimes will soon be back in session. Sign up for one of our many storytime sessions it’s a great way to make friends for both you and your child. It’s also just the start of a lifetime of learning. While you’re here anyway make sure your library card is in order. September is Library Card Signup Month. If you don’t have a card or haven’t used yours in years, now is the time to remedy the situation. Save time, money and clutter, get your library card and don’t leave home without it.
