"State Aid Proposed for Area School Districts" - The Observer Dispatch, Sunday

Excerpt from article: "On Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivered his budget address to the Legislature and said that schools should expect to see a 2.9 percent cut in state aid, on average, next year. In fact, some local districts are bracing for more than that if the Legislature doesn’t replace the funding in its final budget, which is due April 1. ........ Total 2009-2010 funding: $9,249,631

Proposed 2011-2012 funding for WATERVILLE: $8,639,251. Difference (from last year) $610,380. Percent drop: 6.6"


The WKTV forecast: "Quieter weather has moved into Central NY this morning with a few lake effect snow showers across Northern Oneida, Lewis and Northern Herkimer Counties. Snow showers will be very light this morning and afternoon, so we are not expecting much in the way of accumulation.

A few snow showers on and off throughout today with mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will once again warm into the low to mid 30s.

More snow showers on Monday and Tuesday followed by a return to colder weather for the middle of next week."

Yesterday, "the weatherman" served us a Smörgåsbord of conditions: first it snowed so hard that even on Route 20 traffic was reduced to a single lane of vehicles moving around 30 miles per hour. But then the temperature rose just enough to turn the huge flakes to enormous drops of rain! That kept up for quite a while, then - after dark - snow fell, again, this time accompanied by bright flashes of lightning and rolling, house-rattling rumbles of thunder!

It seems to have snowed a great deal, but the snowbank on Route 12 south of the village has barely topped the mailbox and has quite a ways to go before reaching the warning flag!

Out in the country, on Fuess-Cleary Road, the fresh snow gave a newly-frosted look to the parchment-like leaves on Beech trees.

Waterville Library BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP News
from Doris Stephan:

" 'Remarkable Creatures' by Tracy Chevalier is the book of the month for the Waterville Book Discussion Group.

"It is a stunning novel of how one woman's gift transcends class and social prejudice to lead to some of the most important discoveries of the 19 century. The group will meet on Wednesday, February 23 at 12 noon in the meeting room at the Waterville Public Library. Bring lunch, beverages and dessert will be served. Call the library at 841 4651 to reserve a copy of the book."

("Remarkable Creatures" may also be read online at Google Books)

Have a dandy weekend, everyone.
