Chef Deanna said this was her first time occupying the space just outside the Overpass Fest. Despite the distance from the event, which was maybe 500 feet or more, we give her kudos for making a nearly flawless jalapeno lemonade (a little bit savory and little bit sweet). In our opinion, she was a few sample cups away from selling out and or having her concoction become the official summer beverage of the Creekwalk.

This column by Mitchell Patterson reminds us we are all connected, something that seemed very far away when Philip and Mikela Tarlow wrote about in 2002.
Syracuse is full of creative people. This week we learned about the work of this wordsmith, the power of facing hidden handicaps, and appreciating our city’s fertile architectural landscape.
Some folks waste no time. Onondaga Community College’s new Provost Dr. Daria Willis has been on the job exactly one month, and she’s already making an impact. Today she met students from the Synergy internship program (Mercy Works, Inc.) at Upstate Medical University. During her brief commencement remarks, she encouraged the students to reach for their goals and never take the any aspect of their educational opportunities lightly.
It’s always good to see new people bring new energy to existing programs (Willis is from the ATL, and got degrees from FAMU and Florida State). If you see her out and about show her some love.
Gestures like this help put the “C” in community college.
