Debbie Stayer Kelly of Burdett -- a lifelong Schuyler resident, a single parent of two sons and a highly praised Cornell employee -- has Stage 4 cancer as well as a rare genetic mutation called Lynch Syndrome. She is facing a large financial burden as her battle continues.
Her Cornell colleagues have created a GoFundMe page for her that you can find right here. An update can be found by clicking on the Updates button on that site. I hope we all can help out.

Childhood Obesity Prevention
Today, nearly 1 in 3 children in America are overweight
or obese and over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates
in America have tripled. In addition to the psychosocial issues of
stigmatization, overweight children are at far greater risk for numerous
health consequences, including cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes,
and other chronic diseases.
Teaching kids the importance of eating well and being
physically active at a young age is crucial to reversing the trend
of childhood obesity in this country.
To ensure a healthy future for America's children,

Alarms Now Mandatory in All Homes
As of February 22, 2010, all new and existing homes that burn fuel
for heat or appliances or that have an attached garage, must have
a carbon monoxide alarm. This includes one-family or multi-family
dwellings, owned or rented.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that results
when any fuel is burned. Examples of common sources that could produce
CO (carbon monoxide) are:
*fuel-fired furnaces (not electric)
*gas water heaters
*fireplaces and wood stoves/coal stoves
*non-electric space heaters
These alarms may be purchased at Home and Hardware stores. For more
information on carbon monoxide and alarms, go to http://www.dos.state.ny.us/fire/COtoolkit.htm
or contact Schuyler County Emergency Management at 535-8200.
