Diane Duthie - Lansing GalleryIt's not to late to catch a performance of Lansing high School's production of "12 Angry Jurors" at the Lansing Middle School Auditorium tonight and tomorrow at 7:30.

Based on "12 Angry Men", the play follows the struggles of a jury who must determine the defendant's fate in a homicide trial.  Innocent or guilty?  Did the man murder his father?  Can this jury reach a unanimous verdict, even if a 'guilty' verdict requires the death sentence?  What will influence each juror's vote?  How would you vote?

Senator Pam Helming announced yesterday that 120 military veterans from the Wayne-Finger Lakes region have been nominated by their family members and friends for the New York State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame, including two Town of Lansing veterans. The local veterans reside in all six counties that Senator Helming’s district covers, represent all five branches of the U.S. military, and range from the World War II and Korean War eras, the Vietnam War and Cold War eras, and the current Global War on Terrorism era. Senator Helming accepted nominations at her District Office and through her website during the late summer and early fall in preparation for a series of Veteran Recognition Events in November to honor all of the nominees and coincide with Veterans Day.

“As the daughter of a U.S. Air Force veteran and the mother-in-law of a current U.S. Army soldier, I have the utmost respect and appreciation for everything that the men and women of our nation’s military have done and continue to do to protect our freedom and our way of life as American citizens. Our veterans contribute so much to our society both in and out of uniform, and they make our communities better places to live and work. We are fortunate that many of these extraordinary service members make their homes here in the Wayne-Finger Lakes region, and they help strengthen our communities and serve as pillars of our region. Thank you to the many people who took the time to pay tribute to a relative or friend who is a veteran by nominating them to the Veterans Hall of Fame. I look forward to recognizing our local veterans and honoring their service and sacrifice in celebration of Veterans Day,” Senator Helming said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update, earlier this month, about a multistate salmonella outbreak linked to raw turkey. With the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, Cornell University professor of food science Robert Gravani says this salmonella outbreak is a reminder that proper planning and attention to detail are important for the preparation of a safe and delicious Thanksgiving meal. He recommends following the four steps to food safety – clean, separate, cook and chill – to prevent the spread of bacteria to food and family.

posticon Dear Margaret - About Those Millennials

dearmargaret I work with a group of young people who are very bright, but for some reason they seem to want constant coddling. I hate to be one of those people who mocks this generation of millennials, but what gives with them? I'm responsible to oversee their work, and I have to spend so much of my time catering to their whims that I have trouble getting my own work done. Why are they this way? How can I get around it?
