CNY community voices its opinion at forum with State Education Commissioner
For the second time this school year, New York State Education Commissioner Dr. John King paid a visit to the Fayetteville-Manlius School District. But instead of observing classrooms and speaking with administrators, this time King faced a crowd of around 200 people, composed mainly of frustrated parents, teachers and students.
What exactly are the 'Planet Aid' boxes?
Gold is a color associated with autumn, school buses, and cautionary road signs. Recently my friends and I have puzzled over the gold bins for clothing collection appearing at three sites in Manlius and two in Fayetteville. The bins are not associated with local offices of the Rescue Mission or the Salvation Army, or any other local organization.
Helping others around the holidays doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. It can be as simple as cleaning out your linen closet or picking up some extra pet food. Joelle Litz of Liverpool is conducting a donation drive for the Humane Association of CNY and the CNY SPCA from now until Dec. 22. Both shelters are always in need of supplies (see the sidebar for their wish lists), and Litz said every little bit counts.
Public hearing set for Jan. 6
East Syracuse Trustee Jim Carr has made three motions at three different board meetings this year to hold a public hearing to discuss the abolishment of the East Syracuse Police Department, and that motion failed each time. But the fourth time was the charm for Carr, and at the board’s Dec. 2 meeting, the motion passed by a vote of 3 – 2. It was Mayor Robert Tackman's vote that decided the outcome.
FMHS grad launches snowplowing app
A brand new app has arrived exclusively for Central New York residents and it’s here just in time for the long winter. Plowz is a free app, available for both Apple and Android devices, which allows users to request a snow plowing completely through their smartphone or tablet. It was created by co-founders William Mahoney, of Manlius, and Andrew Englander, of New York City.
Tax rate to increase less than two percent
After making minimal changes to its preliminary budget, the Manlius town board adopted a $13 million budget for 2014 at its Nov. 20 meeting. The budget is up 1.9 percent from last year.
Are the new standards the best thing to happen in education or are they setting the bar too high for teachers and students?
Laura Leitch kept her daughter home from Nate Perry Elementary School last Monday. Leitch’s daughter wasn’t sick, nor was there a family emergency. She wasn’t simply playing hooky. No, Leitch kept her daughter home in protest of New York state’s Common Core education standards.
Doug Brode’s new book depicts Lee Harvey Oswald as a “Patsy!”
Can you see Lee Harvey Oswald as a Frank Sinatra fan? If so, you’d probably enjoy Doug Brode’s new novel, “Patsy! The Life and Times of Lee Harvey Oswald.”
After months of public speculation, Kim Amidon was reported to be appearing in court on Nov. 20 for the first time since she plead not guilty to three felonies and one misdemeanor in Pompey Town Court on March 5.
Nina Davuluri may have been home for the first time since being crowned Miss America in September, but that didn’t mean she was taking the weekend off. Davuluri was out and about for three days as a part of her “Hometown Celebration Tour,” which began on Nov. 16 with a visit to Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital and concluded on the morning of Nov. 18 with a breakfast at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, sponsored by Syracuse Woman Magazine.
There is an abundance of blue lights around the village of Manlius this month, and it’s no coincidence. The lights were put up at the beginning of November, marking Diabetes Awareness Month, and were made possible by the Palladino family. Ever since 10 year old Frankie was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age six, his family has banded together to raise awareness about a disease that his mom, Patty Palladino, said carries many misconceptions.
CBA cannot overcome injuries, determined Express
No one on the Christian Brothers Academy football team thought that it would end here. For the Brothers, anything less than a season that ended on the first day of December at the Carrier Dome, with a state Class AA championship in sight, would leave a trace of disappointment, since all the pieces appeared to be in place for a run to the top.
Debbe Titus always talked about how she’d like to open a bakery in her hometown of Jamesville. And when she retired from the education industry a couple years ago, she decided there was no better time than now to make that dream a reality.
Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin E. Walsh reports that sheriff’s detectives arrested a man for rape yesterday morning.
