Liverpool blanks RFA; C-NS rolls past Proctor
While the football rivalry between Liverpool and Cicero-North Syracuse has always run hot, it might never mean as much as it does when the two battle it out for the 'Star Wars Cup' next Friday night at LHS Stadium.
In 2011, according to data collected by criminologist Jim Fisher, a former FBI agent, police officers in the United States shot 1,146 people, killing 607. About 25 percent of those killed were suffering mental illness or emotional disturbance. In New York state alone, 49 persons were shot by police, including 23 fatally. The mortal danger swings both ways. That same year, 73 police officers were shot to death in the line of duty. Last week, three Liverpool police officers faced death on Sycamore Street when they were confronted by a 43-year-old man who had openly threatened to “take out” a village cop. A witness said the man appeared to be armed with a handgun.
Central New York Pagan Pride Day returns to Long Branch Park for its 15th year Sept. 20. The festival, hosted by the Church of the Greenwood, celebrates the harvest holiday of Mabon, which coincides with the autumnal equinox.
Hope Bednarski’s late mother, Doris Connor, was always quick to offer a helping hand to others. Eleven years after Connor’s death from a brain aneurysm, Bednarski is carrying on her mother’s giving spirit by raising awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation through the annual Run for Doris, which includes a 5K race, 1-mile walk and half-mile kids’ fun run.
Don’t let the zombies fool you; the organizers of the Hallowrun for Hunger don’t want to eat your brains. But they do want to feed people. The 5K run, now in its second year, aims to raise money for the Food Bank of Central New York. Founder Liz Westfall hopes to raise enough this year to fund 20,000 meals.
One of Liverpool’s most historic buildings, the A.V. Zogg Building at 800 Fourth St., has been sold by its current owner, the Liverpool Community Church. On Wednesday, Sept. 10, Joe Frega, chairman of the church’s Exit Committee, informed village officials that the new owner was in no rush to make changes to the former high school building.
Two Liverpool school administrators braved the chilly weather for a good cause at Nate Perry Elementary School’s annual back-to-school picnic Sept. 11. NPE Principal Dana Ziegler and Liverpool Superintendent Mark Potter accepted the “Ice Bucket Challenge” to support the ALS Association and the NPE food pantry.
During the 2012 season, Rep. Dan Maffei participated in just two debate. He's upping that number this time around. The Democratic incumbent running for the 24th Congressional District has announced a series of debates and joint appearances with Republican challenger John Katko. Four debates will be televised by local stations, and two will be broadcast on public radio.
Trumpeter Brian Burke blows hot and sings cool. Burke and his band, Brass Inc., will bring its energetic funk-rock to the Carnegie Café at the Maplewood Inn, 400 Seventh North St., starting at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12.
Rep. Dan Maffei (D-Syracuse) announced last week that he had earned the endorsement of local public safety officials in his campaign to keep his seat in the 24th Congressional District. Several first responders joined Maffei at a press conference to announce their support for the incumbent, who is running against former federal prosecutor John Katko of Camillus.
For the sixth year, some 800 teal-clad runners and walkers will take to the streets to raise awareness for ovarian cancer. The Teal Ribbon Run/Walk benefits Hope for Heather, a Liverpool-based organization dedicated to helping women with ovarian cancer and raising awareness about the devastating disease. The nonprofit was started by Frieda Weeks to honor the memory of her daughter, Heather. In November of 2008, Heather lost her battle with an aggressive form of colon cancer. But before her passing, she worked for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, making it her mission to eradicate the disease. After her death, her mother started Hope for Heather to carry on that mission.
While Liverpool’s elementary and middle school students learn reading, writing and ’rithmetic, village Police Chief Don Morris urges local motorists to bone up on safe driving. Liverpool Central School District began its 2014-15 school year on Sept. 4, and the village has a school speed zone on Second Street at the Liverpool Elementary School entrance. The speed limit in the school zone is 20 MPH on school days from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
After being confronted by more than three dozen neighbors at an Aug. 25 public hearing on her application for a special permit to operate a home-based business, Wellness on the Lake, at 101 ½ Birch St., tobacco treatment specialist Janet Marie Urban withdrew her application, according to Liverpool’s deputy village clerk, Sandra Callahan.
On Sept. 3 after conducting a nationwide search and interviewing three candidates, the Liverpool Public Library Board of Trustees chose the library’s new executive director. He’s Syracuse native Daniel Golden, who recently served as assistant director at the Onondaga Free Library on West Seneca Turnpike, south of downtown Syracuse. “We have extended an offer to an individual for the director’s position,” LPL Board President Tim Dodge wrote in an email last week. Dodge declined to identify the successful candidate, but reliable sources said that Golden will accept the appointment.
