. . . for Syracuse University chancellor and president Nancy Cantor, who received a Making a Difference for Women award, given by the National Council for Research on Women. The award is given to those who challenge the status quo and give voice to women and girls.
. . . for local high school basketball teams, who were victorious in Section III finals over the weekend and now head to regional competition. Boys teams: Christian Brothers Academy, Jamesville-DeWitt, Westhill, Hannibal, Onondaga and LaFayette. Girls teams: Cicero North-Syracuse, Mexico, Cazenovia and Bishop Grimes.
. . . for www.ptny.org/bikecanal, a Web site of the Erie Canalway Trail, that won a national award from American Trails, an advocacy organization. The site was named the best travel and tourism site for trails; indeed, it has a cross-state route from Albany to Buffalo that makes it easy to plan a cycling trip along the canal. Mule entirely optional.
. . . for Syracuse University chancellor and president Nancy Cantor, who endured a 10 percent salary cut in the face of the economic situation affecting SU. It could be tough for her to make it on an annual estimated salary of a half-mil, but since SU owns the house she lives in and she doesn’t pay a mortgage, we think she’ll get by without having to deliver pizza for Cosmo’s.
. . . for the rumor mill, fueled in part by the forums on Syracuse.com and WSYR-AM 570 drive-home yakker Jim Reith. Despite the March 5 appearance of New Times publisher Art Zimmer on The Jim Reith Show, when he vehemently denied that this publication has been sold, crap is still circulating around town. Uncharacteristically, Reith was silent after AZ made his announcement. When’s the next Destiny stroke job, Jimmy?
. . . for Linda Destiny, the accused hapless hooker who got busted by city police after the dicks perused her recent classified ad in the Syracuse New Times. Next thing you know, the cops will be asking for free doughnuts to go with their free alternative newsweekly.
