At its June 10 meeting, the DeWitt town board voted unanimously to pass a resolution which reinforces the idea of looking towards other options for the I-81 project instead of redirecting traffic east of the city of Syracuse on I-481. In May, state officials said they had narrowed the "feasible" choices for the interstate to either rebuilding the bridge that runs through Syracuse or replacing it with a street-level boulevard, similar to Erie Boulevard, and rerouting highway traffic around the city.
On June 11, law enforcement officials from across New York State joined in to run the second leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR), which began in Oneida at 9:30 a.m. and concluded in Camillus around 2:15 p.m. Fayetteville marked the halfway point for the officers, who had all biked from Oneida. When they arrived in the Fayetteville Towne Center, they dropped their bikes and began running the second half.
On June 5, over 50 people gathered at the Manlius Senior Centre for one of the last installments in the Spring 2013 “Informed and Shared Discussion” lecture series. The featured speaker was Steven Kern, the director at the Everson Museum in Syracuse.
Theobald, Holmquist, O’Leary and team seeking re-election
At the May 9 meeting of the town of Manlius Republican Committee, the incumbent slate of elected officials were all chosen to represent the Republican Party on the ballot in November.
Closure of part of Route 5 will affect thousands of cars
If you try to travel east toward Chittenango on Route 5 from the village of Fayetteville this summer, you may find that it will take a little longer than usual. The New York State Department of Transportation is replacing a culvert pipe that runs Bishop’s Brook under Route 5 between Shady Lane and Cashin Drive and has closed down a section of the road.
On June 11th, the White House will honor twelve people as museum and library “Champions of Change.” This Champions event will focus on libraries and museums who make a difference for their neighborhoods and for our nation. Sue Considine, executive director of the Fayetteville Free Library, was chosen as one of the champions.
East Syracuse church performs traditional Gregorian chant with a twist
Jared Shepard isn’t afraid to go against the norm. When he was hired as the Minster of Music and Organist at St. Matthew’s Church in East Syracuse two years ago, he was already experienced as a classical musician, having studied with pupils of legendary Juilliard pianists Irwin Freundlich and Eduard Steuermann. Though his experience in sacred music was limited, in the two years he’s been developing the music program, he has successfully made St. Matthews different from nearly all other churches in Central New York by performing Gregorian chant: a type of music that was once a staple in the Catholic Church, but is now rarely performed.
Senior stars lead Brothers past Brighton in title game
Marisa Romeo and Taylor Poplawski remembered how glorious it felt two years ago, when Christian Brothers Academy's girls lacrosse team earned its first-ever state championship, and they were bent on having that glorious feeling once again.
Brothers outscore John Jay-Cross River 17-13 in semis
A second state championship in three years is now within the grasp of the Christian Brothers Academy girls lacrosse team. Led again by a potent and diverse attack, the Brothers outscored John Jay-Cross River 17-13 in Friday afternoon's state Class B semifinal at SUNY-Cortland.
Jamesville- Dewitt, Fayetteville- Manlius and East Syracuse Minoa High School have all been named one of America's Best Schools for 2013 by Newsweek. J-D was ranked 561, F-M ranked 606 and ESM came in at number 1,564.
For the citizens of Minoa, the annual Fire Department Field Days are as familiar in the month of May as the smell of a barbeque or the crack of a baseball bat hitting a ball- they’ve always associated the event with the kickoff of the summer season.
Village will hold annual fireworks show July 13
About 40 people packed the board room in the East Syracuse municipal building on June 3 for the village’s monthly meeting. The topic of the village’s recently – cancelled fireworks was on the agenda, but that wasn’t what brought the masses in. They were all there because they had just received their first tax bill of the 2013-14 fiscal year - and the fact that they will all have to pay 22 percent more than last year has finally hit home.
Lakeland Park chosen for company's newest Outdoor Discovery School
Less than two weeks after discussions began, it’s official: L.L. Bean has chosen Cazenovia Lake as the location of its latest “Outdoor Discovery School.” “The eagle has landed,” Trustee Jim Joseph, who coordinated the deal for the village, said into his cell phone Saturday afternoon, June 1, as he and other village board members watched the green L.L. Bean trailer full of kayaks back into place near the public swimming area in Lakeland Park.
Red Rams again blank Oneida in Class A final
Strong pitching, a well-timed power surge and near-perfect defense all came together for the Jamesville-DeWitt softball team - and the end result is a second consecutive Section III Class A championship. Kerri Keeler tossed a two-hit shutout and also hit a solo home run in the fourth inning to put her team on the board as the Red Rams defeated top seed Oneida 4-0 in Saturday’s Class A final at Syracuse University.
