. . . for Hancock Airport’s snow removal crews, awarded honorable mention for outstanding snow removal at the International Aviation Snow Symposium in Buffalo. This is the 13th time since 1981 the Salt City’s snow crews have been so honored in the competition among domestic and Canadian airports.
. . . for the Matilda Joslyn Gage home, in Fayetteville, highlighted in the Spring 2009 issue of Ms. magazine. The article focuses on the home’s importance to U.S. history as well as on the ongoing restoration of the structure to its 19th-century good looks.
. . . for those who live and work in and around Columbus Circle, where a water main break threatened to keep them shuttered at least through Thursday, May 14. That includes the Roman Catholic Diocese offices, the Downtown YMCA and the Media Unit. Which leads us to wonder how the Mayor of Montgomery Street, Walt Shepperd, will get by without brewing his morning cup of coffee.
. . . for the thousands of now-graduated Syracuse University students, entering one of the toughest job markets ever. One of the bright spots of their collegiate career (and week) would have to be that their commencement speaker was Vice President and SU Law School graduate Joe Biden, who hinted at not being the best motivated student while he was here. Hey, if Biden can rise to the level of second-in-command, there’s hope for all you frat-house partiers out there.
. . . for Bandit the Wallaroo, still hopping around Madison County like a hayseed with a hotfoot. This critter had better find his way home pronto before someone wonders what Down Under burgers might taste like.
