R. Bagshaw. Club President Cindy Surline and lo­ cal resident Steve Behlke assisted in re­ furbishing rocking chairs for the Neona­ tal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Strong Hospital. For safety reasons, parents of children in the NICU are not allowed to hold a child unless seated. This project began because Cortney learned that there were not enough rocking chairs available in the NICU for parents and family mem­ bers of the children that were being taken care of in the NICU. More rocking chairs are needed as the project will continue providing rock­ ing chairs to other child centers in need. Donations of rocking chairs or financial assistance to help cover costs may be di­ rected to Palmyra-Macedon Rotary. Cor­ tney can be reached at (315) 945-0666.

RSSS is on a mission to rebrand sobriety by creating opportunities for others to engage in those necessary conversations about the impact of substance use. While one was struggling with a drug addic­ tion that nearly killed him, the other was struggling with what to do about it. This was the dynamic between Super Star and Rock Star for nearly 18 years. Their story is about twin brothers finally find­ ing serenity through sobriety and making responsible choices. The brothers set out to write and re­ cord songs for their CD “Serenity “to convey the horror of addiction and the beauty of sobriety. Some of the musical guests involved with Serenity include musicians from KISS, Heart, Goo Goo Dolls, Trans-Siberian Orchestra and more, h sobriety and making responsible choices.

Thursday May 12, 2011 W hat's News Attention All Youth! Grandslam Youth Derby's 14th Year Everything is set for another phe­ nomenal fishing season in Wayne County. The only ingredient for a great time is some young anglers. Now is the time to register for the annual Grand­ slam Youth Derby. Last year we had a record number of youngsters (97) reg­ istered for the contest. Here’s how the derby works. The Merchants Challenge Division re­ quires anglers to catch the five species of warm water fish; pike, perch, wall­ eye, largemouth, and smallmouth bass. After qualifying they can add to their total weight by registering larger spe­ cies. The GrandSlam Division species are; chinook, coho, steelhead, brown, and lake trout. The Species Challenge allows anglers to enter any one of the ten species. No qualifying is necessary in the Species Division. To enter the Youth Division, a child must be between the ages of 4-16, at the time of registration. There will be two age categories - Youth ages 4-7 & ages 8-16. Entry fee is $5.00. The only change for this year’s con­ test is that fish may be punched by the weighmaster at the time of weigh-in. The event kicked-off May 7th and continues through August 17th. Reg­ istration forms are available at all bait and tackle shops in Wayne County. The county web page fists the com­ plete rules and regulations and will feature a continuing leader board dur­ ing the entire derby.
