David Shaw of The Finger Lakes Times returned to our studios for an update on what's happening with the Seneca Meadows Landfill and how the upcoming election may affect it.

Steve Buchiere of the Finger Lakes Times stopped in to look back on news in the month of August including the discharge of sewage into Seneca Lake and the City of Geneva's continuing transparency issues. We also look ahead to a story Steve is working on regarding Geneva's Food Justic Committee.

Hobart and William Smith Colleges attorney Lou Guard was recently appointed to fill the remainder of Charlie Evangelista’s term on the Ontario County Board of Supervisors. Evangelista left the board after more than twenty years to become the Democratic commissioner for the county Board of Elections. It’s not the only change coming to Ontario County with elections around the corner. The Finger Lakes Times’ Mike Hibbard has been covering county politics and he joined us in studio.
