Stan 'Stosh' Burke was honored Wednesday at the October Lansing Town Board meeting when the Town Board unanimously passed a resolution acknowledging his military service and lifelong participation in the Lansing community.  A lifelong Lansing resident, born in Ludlowville in 1932.  Burke was a US Marine in the Korean war.  Councilman Doug Dake read the resolution aloud before presenting a framed copy of it to Burk.

"I knew Stan and I want to thank Marion George for bringing up his name, as well as Gus Isaacs, as distinguished citizens of Lansing that not only fought in the Korean War, but also World War II," Dake said. "They are part of the greatest generation.  Our right to speak freely now is partly their doing."

Between May and July of this year, the Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Hospital at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine rescued approximately 150 eggs from more than a dozen pregnant turtles who had been hit by cars in New York, and were too injured to survive and lay eggs on their own.

"Turtle populations are experiencing declines worldwide, including here in New York state," said Sara Childs-Sanford, D.V.M., chief of service at the wildlife hospital. "Egg incubation at the hospital and release of the hatchlings assist turtle conservation efforts by supporting population numbers."
