HISTORY: 7:30 PM at The Museum at The Creamery, 28 Hannum St.

 

Skaneateles Press editor Jason Emerson will talk about his new book, Giant in the Shadows: The

 

Life of Robert T. Lincoln. Emerson, after nearly ten years of research, draws upon previously

 

unavailable materials to offer the first truly definitive biography of the famous lawyer,

 

businessman, and statesman who, much more than merely the son of America’s most famous

 

president, made his own indelible mark on one of the most progressive and dynamic eras in

 

United States history.

will be offering free oral cancer screenings to the public. Oral cancer is not a rare disease.

 

Approximately 37,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer each year in the US. It kills one

 

person every hour of every day. The good news is that it can often be found early in its
