In the November 15-21, 2006 edition of the Syracuse New Times the “Best Of Syracuse” awards were announced. This year, instead of a blank form there was a two stage process that determined both nominees and winners. Syracuse United Neighbors was nominated for “Best Activist Group.”
It really was an honor to be nominated, since our community isn’t a real “New Times” kind of crowd and we were publicly slagged by the paper a couple of years ago for being rude to County Executive Pirro and protesting in front of his home on a Saturday morning.
Anyway, congratulations to the Updowntowners for their victory!
Also, does anyone know when the New Times is going to get back on the internet? They had a falling out with their old site host and the new website has been under construction for months.
