Partnerships are vital in today’s economy. But what really speaks volumes about the overall generosity of a community is when small businesses work together to help advance the goals of a local nonprofit.
In response to resident complaints about commercial vehicles and trailers parked on village streets, Liverpool’s Board of Trustees plan to amend the village code to allow police to ticket such vehicles. The board conducted a public hearing on Nov. 17 to consider the code change.
The town boards of Salina and Clay have approved their respective 2015 budgets. Read on to find out the changes in your town:
Detectives believe victim targeted, incident not random
Two gunshots were reportedly heard by witnesses at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, at the Covered Bridge Apartments, at 850 Vine St., just outside the village of Liverpool.
To the editor: I want to correct the false statements Supervisor Zambrano made regarding her 2015 Cicero town budget in the Nov. 17 Star-Review (“Cicero passes budget”).

Taxpayers in the Cicero Fire District voted 80-32 to approve a proposal to build a $4 million fire station. The referendum, held Nov. 18, allows the fire district to sell a 4.5-acre lot to the Cicero Fire Department to make way for the new building.
Placing a child for adoption is heartbreaking, but sometimes the best choice for the child
Carrie Howard was thrilled when she found out she was pregnant. “I always wanted to be a mom,” Howard said. “I was living with my boyfriend and his family. I was 20 years old and was very excited when I found out.” But things quickly went downhill. “My boyfriend didn't want to be a father,” Howard said. “I ended up having to move out and back in with family. My family was supportive, but they were unwilling to have a newborn in the home. I found myself at a crossroads where I had no job, no home, no license or car, not really anything to offer a child.” So Howard, a Liverpool native, decided to place her unborn child for adoption.
Last week, we saw many celebrations and ceremonies to honor our veterans and those currently serving in our military. I had the pleasure to participate in the Cicero American Legion’s open house on Veterans Day and was honored to speak with many local veterans. They have done so much for us and deserve our respect and support.
Well, we’ve endured the first lake effect snowfall of the year. A few inches blanketed lawns and landscapes from Oswego to Ithaca after flakes began falling at noon Friday, Nov. 14, and continued on and off for a couple days. The unusual mid-day squall was offset by intermittent appearances of blue skies and sunshine, as though Mother Nature couldn’t quite make up her mind.
Taxpayers in the town of Cicero will pay an additional $12.73 per $100,000 house in 2015, according to the budget passed by the town board by a vote of 4 to 1 Wednesday, Nov. 12. The $12,057,166 budget represents a $346,378 increase over 2014. It includes a 2.94 percent tax levy increase, which Supervisor Jessica Zambrano said is $107,000 above the tax cap. The board voted earlier this month to approve a local law to exceed the cap.
To the editor: Yet again the Cicero Town Board and supervisor have disappointed the people of Cicero. The so-called budget they passed with a 4 to 1 vote is merely a way for them to kick the can further down the road and delay the inevitable.
Carmen Emmi Sr., noted local farmer and real estate developer, died Oct. 31 at age 82. He was the co-founder of the family farm Emmi and Sons and co-owner of Syracuse Farm Supply. Along with his father, Antonio Emmi, and brother-in-law, Salvatore “Sam” Mangano, Carmen co-founded Emmi and Sons in the 1940s. Today, Emmi’s has farm stands in Baldwinsville and Liverpool. The family farm is also a mainstay at the Central New York Regional Market.
