LETTER: Zambrano not absolved of ethics charges

To the editor: Recent news articles and letters to the editor, along with comments at Cicero Town Hall and in the community, indicate there is a good deal of misunderstanding regarding the decision by the Cicero Board of Ethics that found the former town supervisor guilty of a conflict of interest and subsequent litigation seeking her removal from office.

LETTER: Becallo for state assembly

To the editor: Over the last two years, the town of Cicero has been fighting for its life. For most of the people in CNY, this is no big surprise, as many communities are fighting hard to stay afloat. With reports stating that Cicero will be bankrupt by 2019, we have had one single hope: Councilman Mike Becallo.

LETTER: Help shelter pets this holiday season

To the editor: Each year, more than 4 million homeless pets are killed because of overpopulation. Families who adopt from shelters or rescue groups can help save these lives and support the growing trend of socially responsible holiday shopping. You will make room in shelters for other homeless animals as well as give an animal another chance for a family. You give the gift of life by adopting homeless pets rather than buying from breeders or pet stores. Animals from pet stores usually come from kitten or puppy mills, where animals live in horrible conditions.

LETTER: ‘Arnie’ will be missed at Onondaga Lake

To the editor: Liverpool, specifically Onondaga Lake, will be missing a very prominent figure. The recent plan, after retiring with 40 years at Roth Steel and acquiring a pacemaker/defibrillator, was to move from Liverpool to Auburn, Maine to join family in late October. Lynn Arnold, known to everyone as Arnie, was seen on a regular basis riding his bike up and down the paths at Onondaga Lake, weather permitting. Last summer, he clocked an amazing 2,500 miles on that path, biking faithfully, sometimes with his good friend, Vince. His goal for this year was 3,000 miles (at the age of 74), but Arnie’s health prevented him from reaching that goal.

LETTER: Venesky for supervisor

To the Editor: I am writing this letter to express my support for Mark Vanesky’s candidacy for Supervisor in the Town of Cicero.
