Village Community Park

Village of Lansing voters will have an opportunity to name three parks next week.  After voting for two open Board of Trustees seats, they will also get to vote on how to name the parks, including a major new park near Warren Road.  Village Trustees approved the ballot Monday for next Tuesday's election

"We have three parks that we have an opportunity to name," Mayor Donald Hartill said Monday.  "We have the big park, which is the new one on Northwoods Drive.  There's another one that we rebuilt across from Dankert Park, and there's a pocket park on Craft Road and Leif's Way.  This is a way of naming these parks for people who have benefited the Village in one way or another."

Lee Rayburn

Lee Rayburn, host of WHCU's Morning Newswatch, tweeted Wednesday that his job has been eliminated.  His post was characteristically upbeat and gracious, with great praise for his colleagues at Cayuga Radio Group, and humble appreciation for the community and his opportunity to serve it.  He also posted on Facebook, where, less than 24 hours later 168 people had reacted, and 152 replied, mourning his loss to the community.  At Wednesday's Lansing Town Board meeting Tompkins County Legislator Mike Sigler paid tribute to Rayburn.

"It's really a huge loss.  I want to thank him personally for all the work he's done for the last six years," Sigler said. "He has everything on from Frank Towner at the Y to the Hangar Theatre, and all the local news.  I feel that's a giant loss to the community.  I really appreciate his work."

posticon Dear Margaret - Forgiveness Beyond Reach

dearmargaret I've been struggling with the concept of forgiveness for a very long time. I get all kinds of advice from all kinds of people, none of which is very helpful. Some say you can forgive but not forget, but that doesn't seem like you've truly forgiven. Others say that it will just take time, but much time has gone by, and I'm still at the same place. Still others talk about forgiveness in terms of religion, which doesn't do it for me. I'm the one that is hurting. The one who offended me probably is living life free of hurt or guilt. Can you offer any advice on this subject?
