Happy 4th of July (update)


The story I posted about yesterday (Happy 4th of July… or not) drew media attention, hundreds of comments, and apparently, a significant number of phone calls to the mayor’s office in Cazenovia, New York.

It has been brought to my attention (via a reliable source) that the Willis twins, Nolan and Jack, will be participating in the Cazenovia 4th of July race tomorrow.

I’d like to give a positive mention to Kurt Wheeler, the mayor of Cazenovia, who was a key player in getting this done. I am also relieved that the Syracuse Chargers ultimately made the right decision.

The weather looks perfect for tomorrow. Hopefully, everyone has a great race and a good time.

Check back tomorrow for my post-race report!

What type of beer will you be drinking on the 4th?

    I just spoke to someone on their Team. As far as he knows the boys are still not allowed to participate.

    I’m glad to hear this story got some attention and a change was made. It’s sad and unfortunate that in 2014 this was even an issue at all.

  9. Very good to hear this!!! Have a great race!
