Joyful Intent by Carol Ealine Deys

Posted by Books, ETC. of Macedon, NY 0 Comments
JOYFUL INTENT ...Macedon Village's Celebration of Our Treasured Canal Park Friday, April 17th,Twenty Fifteen and it's a cool, damp morning at Macedon Canal Park. Already the clean-up volunteers are arriving - touched by the need to care for all that we have been given in the Village of Macedon and beyond. We are a sturdy bunch - some more so than others, and the crackling fire in the park grate encourages us with its cheery sound and the thoughts of Jiffy popcorn and s'mores to come. We have been greatly blessed by those in and around the Village who have chosen to reflect upon the promised direction of a job well done. We have taken one small space in the universe and trusted the value of not only encouraging its direction, but also defining a beautiful Butterfly Nature Trail and a place where people can gather to fish, picnic and camp out sharing in the blessed nature all around. Birds are starting to sweetly sing after a long, cold winter. Their encouraging sounds make this wet, damp morning a place of great potential. They are building their nests all around, and they - like us - are determined to make a difference. Patsy Cline soulfully sings her powerful songs to us, and music fills the air. Shades of Concerts in the Park to come. We are waiting for the yellow bus, filled with excited children who will also have a chance to value this day, and the wonder of work to be done - food to eat, and the sharing friendship of community. We have just mastered the need to feel any sadness because the rain fell last night - and now it is starting all over again. Oh, dear! Yea! A pop-up canopy is coming into view, and it will be of great help. Ideas, ideas, ideas - one after another committing to make a difference along The Erie Canal, one of New York State's wondrous, treasured, adventuresome places. Take a look around. Value the ground you are standing upon and the freedom so desperately fought for in days gone by. Salute the men and women who made it all possible - some giving their very lives so that we could live with wonderful choices in our every day places. Today we will celebrate with fancy cheese and crackers, a veggie tray of carrots, broccoli and celery, tiny red tomatoes plus savory dip to match, little bags of crispy choices, the ever-present popcorn, cookies and s'mores if the weather allows, and the value of friendship shared. Two more volunteers from Egypt and E.Rochester have shown up this morning. Friend Bill from Victor brings his ready smile and appreciated help. Hope is in the air, and to those who are dedicated to a better tomorrow by the work they do today - Thank you. Thank you for being a part of sharing in the wealth of this area, and Thank you for taking the time to read this little epistle, for it is the combination of all who will make the difference needed in the Village of Macedon. We HAVE been given much. It is my prayer that all who live here will know and understand the value they now have, the hope we are defining in this village of choice, Macedon, New York. I see the bus coming! All of the teachers from the Wayne County Project S.H.O.W have brought the children, and we are excited as they are to have them here. Come on down the next time we have an adventure in the village. Check our website at www.villageofmacedon.org and remember "the more the merrier" as the old saying goes. I hear the whistle of the train going by - seasoned wood smoke is in the air. I am refreshed by the friendships we share, and the beauty of a job well done. As I look around I see that the volunteers and friends from S.H.O.W. are doing an amazing work this year, and the park is beginning to awaken from its winter sleep - defining a brand new area for grass to grow and flowers to bloom. Colorful birds and butterflies are certainly welcome! Life in its ever present value system walks before us. Celebrating our intent to do so, we claim our little place in the sun. It is our wish that you will do the same. HAPPY SPRING! Carol Elaine Deys Paradeys Acres Macedon, New York.

Why Try and Dissolve the Village

Posted by Books, ETC. of Macedon, NY 0 Comments
Why Try and Dissolve Villages? In the case of the Village of Macedon, in my opinion I have found that the distracter’s that are trying to prevent growth and change within the Village find it amusing to place extra workload on myself as Mayor and the loyal hardworking staff all in order to serve their personal agendas not the agendas of the majority of the residents and betterment of the people. I am working until 1am to 3am six days a week to make sure the vision of the Village residents will come true. I do this because I have not forgotten who I work for, you the people. I make sure day to day business is completed, complete the extra unnecessary workload from the Town board that have harsh and misinformed words which are not backed up by facts and the extra workload from the dissolution committee which includes two Village Trustees Sliney and Lohse. I cannot have accomplished a visionary plan for the Village without the help from the volunteers, staff, committed board members and the highly respected contractors that have gone above and beyond because they see the true treasure in the Village and the majority of the people that not only live here, but also visit this Village. In my opinion, if the dissolution committee “Macedon One” truly did their home work from past dissolved Villages and information from the two past dissolutions here they would know there is not much of a cost savings and in some cases will cost you more. If the committee truly does not want to pay more in taxes then why isn’t their fight and outcry with the Town board for duplicating services in the Ambulance and Fire departments instead of improving the already cost effective, well run services the Village provides Town wide. Also, with the Town board initiating the lawsuits that have provided enormous legal fees on both sides? In my opinion, taxation without representation without the taxpayers vote has occurred with the Town. I have come to realize there are people that have the need to feel powerful by destroying the small communities and government which have been working for the people and moving the Village forward, which is an easier way out, then to be powerful and possibly fail at trying to destroy a larger form of government that may not be working for the people. Remember, power and success is measured by the good you have done not the destruction that has occurred from your personal agendas. Respect is earned by integrity and truth. Thank you, Marie Cramer Mayor, Village of Macedon
