Summer is almost here, and at NOPL, that means the popular annual photo contest is back at our Cicero location. This year, as part of our ongoing NOPL20 Celebration commemorating our 20th anniversary, the contest has a new spin. Photo submissions must adhere to one of two themes, paying homage to our local communities and how they have changed over the years.
To the editor: There’s a lot of good going on in Cicero.
I believe that one way that we can move our county forward is by improving our infrastructure. At our May legislative session we authorized funding to improve our highways and bridges, we accepted grant funding to continue the development of the Skä·noñh – Great Law of Peace Center, and we refinanced some outstanding bonds at a lower interest rate.
Here in Onondaga County, agriculture is a vital part of our community and a cornerstone of our economy. I’ve been working hard to support our state’s dedicated farmers and ensure they have the resources they need to thrive, but there’s more that can be done. By shopping at our local farmers markets this season, you can do your part to strengthen our economy and bring home fresh, healthy products for you and your family.
It looks like it’ll be a dogfight for the Democratic Party nomination to replace Assemblyman Sam Roberts. Or maybe a catfight.
Besides a collection of radio hits, what do Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Selena Gomez, Seal and Toni Braxton have in common? Like 1.5 million of their fellow Americans, they’ve struggled with lupus, a chronic autoimmune disorder that attacks the skin, joints and internal organs.
Thanks to a generous resident, the Star-Review will be printing historic photos of the village of North Syracuse for the next several weeks.
To the editor: Memorial Day is the day Americans set aside to honor those brave men and women who met tragic ends during times of war. We must use this day to honor their sacrifices, to pray for their families, and to bow our heads in recognition of their service. We must never forget.
To the editor: A few of Cicero Town Supervisor Jessica Zambrano’s friends have asked about my questioning whether a recent Cicero Town Board meeting led by Bill Meyer, who is not a Cicero Town Board member and is not an elected official, may have been an illegal meeting, and I am happy to respond.
Over the years, the costs to operate our zoo have escalated and therefore have required support from a group called Friends of the Zoo.
From the first part of this story, Peter Stuyvesant had just been named director general of the Dutch West India Company. His leadership lasted almost two decades. Leadership of the neighboring patroonship continued even though Kiliaen van Rensselaer died in 1643 and was replaced by his son Johan living in Amsterdam, Holland. The relationship between the two entities was convivial. However, tensions grew within the community’s expanding population. Illegal structures were being built outside the walls of the fort. Instead of destroying these buildings, Stuyvesant decided to establish a permanent village called Beverwijck, which became the center of the North American brewing world for well over 200 years. This civil settlement outside the fort and beyond the control of the patroonship was a success. Two more breweries were built and many home-based, unnamed breweries were established.

Each year, we look forward to Memorial Day as a sign of summer and warmer weather. But as we prepare for barbecues and backyard parties, it’s also important for us to remember the true reason for the holiday: to honor and pay tribute to those who have lost their lives defending our nation’s freedom and to recognize the sacrifices of the brave men and women still abroad.
