Dancing princesses flooded the Granby Elementary auditorium at the Halloween Party sponsored by the Parent-Teacher Group the night before Halloween. Disney Princess Elsa from the movie “Frozen” seemed to be a popular costume choice among the youngsters in Granby.
Kenny Neil’s goal in the final minute of regulation lifted the Oswego State men’s ice hockey team over host Buffalo State 4-3 on Friday night at the Ice Arena. The Lakers erased a three-goal deficit in the second period and Neil’s second goal of the contest secured the victory in the team’s SUNYAC and regular season opener.
The Oswego State women’s ice hockey team fell 2-0 to Castleton State College on the road in its season-opener. Oswego goes to 0-1-0 on the early season. The Lakers were neck-and-neck with the Spartans through one period, ending the first 20 minutes in 0-0 tie.
The Oswego County Bar Association recently voted to approve the report of the Judicial Screening Committee that found both candidates for Oswego County Family Court, to wit: James K. Eby and Lou Anne Rucynski Coleman, to be “Recommended as Qualified” for the position.
John and I like to break up our road trips by stopping at new places. On our way to visit family in Ohio, we had a wonderful stay at The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake. Yes, there is more than one Geneva-on-the-Lake. The one in Ohio is part of Geneva State Park where there is picnicking, camping, cabins, boating, trails, swimming, fishing and more. The lodge is a beautiful resort with rooms that have great views of Lake Erie. The first day we were there it was rainy and the lake was kicking up but the next morning the water calmed, the sun came out, and it was beautiful.
