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.

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.

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.
