She was emaciated, dehydrated, suffering from an eye infection. She couldn’t walk. Her organs were shutting down. But Higgins loved her anyway.

EDITORIAL: County should amend law allowing officials to hold two positions

For all intents and purposes, if elected, you’re allowed to be a county legislator and a mayor. You’re allowed, and capable, of holding two positions at the same time. State law says that. Numerous attorneys agree. The law is the law. But is the law what’s best for the community?

DIY, or don't even try?

Some Syracuse homeowners are skipping the real estate agent in favor of sell-it-yourself sites, with mixed results

Websites like Zillow and For Sale By Owner make selling a home without the help of a licensed real estate agent a tempting prospect, allowing sellers more control over their listings and the opportunity to keep the 6-percent sales commission they’d traditionally have to fork over to an agent.

Taking a stand against suicide

Elbridge mom raises money, awareness for Liverpool walk in memory of her father

Tara Olmstead Kinsella has happy memories of her father from her childhood. “My dad was truly a great guy,” she said. “He had a huge heart and would do anything for anyone.” Though her parents were divorced and she lived with her mother, Kinsella described Wayne Olmstead as “a wonderful father.” “He would take me for a week every summer and plan something for the two of us every day,” she said. “I remember him taking me to the Alpine Slide at Song Mountain as a kid, go-cart racing, putt-putt golfing, lunch cruises on Skaneateles Lake, he would plan something for every day. I’m an only child and he was always proud of me.” That didn’t change when Kinsella had children of her own.
