The holiday shopping season is now in full swing, but while it’s true a snowy winter wonderland can get consumers in the Christmas shopping spirit, New York State Retail Council Vice President Ted Potrikus cautions that the chilly weather can result in some frustrating situations for retailers:

This week’s Syracuse Common Council Meeting marked the last for second district councilor Pat Hogan. He’s represented parts of the city’s north and west sides for eight years, and term limits kept him from running again. But Hogan DID run for mayor, ultimately conceding he couldn’t win against a well-funded, party backed incumbent.
Pat Hogan’s final term representing the Syracuse Common Council’s Second District ends December 31st. He’ll be succeeded by Chad Ryan.
Two groups of 6th graders from Eagle Hill middle school in the Fayetteville-Manlius school district visited WAER today for a tour of the station and to record their annual radio production of "A Christmas Carol". The trip was arranged by teachers Kent Jeffery and Carol Borg. WAER's Cora Thomas and Eric Cohen assisted with the recording.
