Lansing HS Pool

After a year and a half of repairs, delays, and closure, the Lansing High School swimming pool is now open.  The Girls varsity Swim Team began practicing in the pool Monday, and school district officials have big plans for making up for lost time. 

"It's very exciting," said Lansing CSD Superintendent Chris Pettograsso.  "It looks great.  There are some little things they have to finish up.  One of the biggest changes is the air quality, because the UV system kills the bacteria so you don't have to use as much chlorine.  So there is a huge difference in the air quality."

posticon Rabies Alert - Catch The Bat!

The Tompkins County Health Department urges residents to avoid the risk of rabies and rabies treatment by capturing and submitting for laboratory testing any bat found in their home that may have come in contact with humans or pets. During the hot summer months, bats seek cooler locations on the lower floors of homes. This results in more accidental contacts with bats than at other times of the year.

There has been one confirmed rabid bat in Tompkins County in 2017. Rabies is largely transmitted through bites from rabid animals. Bats present an additional concern, because in certain situations a bite may not be readily apparent. This includes bats that are found in a room with a sleeping person or bats that are found in the presence of an unattended child or a person with a sensory impairment, or if the bat comes in contact with bare skin. Bats that have contact with pets that are lapsed or unvaccinated against rabies also present a concern.

Within reach Last week, I was disappointed that the Crystal Lake Café at Americana Vineyards was closed, so with tears in our eyes, we motored up the lake to Knapp Winery's Vineyard Restaurant.

No more tears.

We were greeted by the largest calico cat I've ever seen. Maybe 'greeted' isn't the best word, for the cat was basking in the sun. When I gave her a pet, she stretched and smiled. Yes, cats do smile. Otherwise, she was stationary. Ok, it's a laid back place.

dearmargaretDear Margaret: I have been at odds with a former friend, 'Ramona,' for about a year. We have a mutual friend whom I see fairly often. The subject of Ramona comes up with this mutual friend, and she is always telling me the disparaging remarks made about me. It turns my stomach. Ninety-nine percent of what is being said about me is untrue and hurtful. How can I get Ramona to move on, stop talking about me, and just live her own life?
