Garages all around Central New York are in full thrash mode as racing season gets closer and closer.
Teams competing at Oswego Speedway have May 5 circled on their calendars as the gates to the Steel Palace swing open that day for its 62nd consecutive year of racing.
Teams, officials and fans alike are anxiously awaiting Opening Day No. 62 at Oswego Speedway as the supermodifieds and SBS classes headline a full summer of activity at the lakeside oval.
In those 62 years of racing, the Gioia family name has been around the speedway possibly more than any other family.
When I was a child, toys were a simpler past-time than they are today. We had a set of dominos that was kept in the lower desk drawer and every now and then I would get them out and stand them on end. It was a simple task to push the first one and see them all fall.
It took practice and it took time to get them to stand up on end and yet make sure the spacing was correct. The actual time it took for them to fall was quick, but you had to have everything in place just right to make it work.
I later came to appreciate the “bones” for what they were, the dots become strategy and the slap of the game piece on the table was the” in your face” play that I felt sure was the winning move.
Three Fulton companies are among the first 517 business to receive low-cost power grants under New York State’s new ReCharge New York program.
Canfield Machine & Tool, Huhtamaki, and Interface Solutions are among those listed as receiving the low-cost power grants.
The companies are receiving a share of the first installment of 910 megawatts of low-cost power set aside to create and protect jobs as part of a major overhaul of New York’s economic development programs. One megawatt is the equivalent of power used by 800 to 1,000 typical homes.
The Oswego County Legislature’s Health and Human Services Committee approved the transfer of $18,000 from the contingency fund to be used for mosquito surveillance during a meeting held Wednesday.
Last summer’s increased mosquito population and the death of a child from eastern equine encephalitis has resulted in the county health department taking more aggressive action against the disease carrying vector.
Legislators instructed the health department to pursue a more regional approach to the problem. Two additional seasonal staff persons were added to the 2012 budget.
The New York State Department of Transportation will hold an open meeting Wednesday, May 2 to discuss safety improvements to the intersection of N.Y.S. Route 176 and County Route 7 in the Town of Hannibal.
The open house will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Hannibal Town Hall, located at 824 Co. Rte. 34.
Plans for the upcoming project will be available for review and DOT representatives will be present to answer questions. No formal presentation is planned.
Here we go again! I knew it was only a matter of time before someone else took a cheap shot at our local library. First, I would like to suggest to you, Mr. Chapple, that you go back to our library and check a few books out, especially grammar.
The library isn’t taking another bite from the apple and asking for more money. The library is trying to restore the funding that was cut from the 2012 Fulton City budget.
Furthermore, it would only cost you and I the same as a gallon of gasoline a year to support the library through the proposition on the school ballot.
