ABC Cayuga Play Space 6

ABC Cayuga Play Space in Auburn held an open house for donors Tuesday. The space is nearly finished and scheduled to hold a grand opening May 5.

HIT: To the Math & Movement Family Fun Day hosted by the Auburn Enlarged City School District on Saturday.

This event at Auburn Junior High School combined two things that every young child can enjoy — fun with numbers and physical activity. Toss in a bunch of other interactive elements, and you've got a terrific family outing for a dreary early-spring weekend day.

Events like these, and opportunities for similar activity that will soon be coming with the Play Space in the old HSBC building in downtown Auburn, are a vital part of making a community family-friendly.

HIT: To the development of a high-profile downtown Auburn property.

That old HSBC building (others may refer to it as Marine Midland) will soon be referred to not by what it was, but what it is. In addition to Play Space, the ABC Cayuga endeavor that's nearly ready to open, the building will house a new branch of Lyons National Bank and an office for insurer Aflac.

Situated at the corner of Genesee and North streets, this unique structure has been dormant for several years. Seeing it come to life again is great news for the city.

MISS: To a vicious assault on a corrections officer at the Five Points Correctional Facility in Seneca County.

The New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association reported last week that an inmate at Five Points beat an officer to the point where the officer suffered fractures to his face and a dislocated shoulder.

"These incidents are a stark reminder of the dangers our officers face every day," NYSCOPBA officials said in a press release.
