EditorialWhen I first moved to this area I lived in Cortland.  I had a job there, so I decided to rent while I scoped out the area.  I decided to live in Lansing because I loved the community, it was on the right side of Ithaca to commute to Cortland, and close enough to Ithaca to enjoy the city without having to actually live in the 'proverbial ten square miles surrounded by reality'.  I had grown up outside of Boston where my favorite place to go was Harvard Square, then lived in Northern Illinois, where I frequently visited Madison, Wisconsin, and made friends there.  Ithaca reminded me of Cambridge and Madison.  My go-to restaurant in Ithaca quickly became Simeon's.

Simeon's had the Ithaca vibe in spades - a funky layout in one of those old, cool looking Commons corner buildings, good food and service, and those platforms by the windows with tables crammed onto them.  It just felt good just to be there and watch life go by on the Ithaca Commons while having a great meal.  It was a tragedy when Simeon's was forced to close after a truck smashed into the building, killing Lansing Resident Amanda Bush, a bartender at the restaurant, who was pregnant at the time.  An important piece of Ithaca was wrenched away that day.  So it is with some joy that I learned Simeon's is reopening next week.

mailmanI'm glad that Congressman Reid supports the 'Survivors Bill of  Rights' and that he cares about victims of sexual assault; however , this bill is a "day late and a dollar short".

This bill treats the victim as an 'after thought'. If the politicians really cared about victims of violent crime; and make no mistake about this: sexual assault is a violent crime, then they would repeal the (un)Safe Act immediately, and allow  women (and men) to protect themselves from sexual predators.
