Wyoming County is still among the lowest in Covid-19 cases, but Oct. has been unprecedented in record highs

UPDATED -- Statistics for Wyoming County for the last three (3) days of the month (October 29 through 31), show an increase of eleven (11) for the three day total. Just a number of months back, an increase of four in Wyoming County would have required a time period of a week or more. For whatever reason, Wyoming County is on a steady roll backward as the number of Covid-19 cases continue to increase on a regular basis. 

On the positive side, there are a much larger number of Wyoming County residents who are doing their fair share in keeping the Covid-19 spread down. We must keep doing what is right because if our county goes the route of so many others, there will be no where to which to run for safety or shelter. We are in our "retreat" now and need to keep it that way. Boldly preach masks, social distancing, wash hands, avoid indoor gatherings, skip holiday meals and gatherings in favor of being safely around for next year's celebrations! Try something new like being with nuclear family gatherings by way of Xoom electronics--a million times more effective than even masks. May God bless your efforts.

Sir Sean Connery, the actor who defined James Bond, has died aged 90

Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90, his family has said.

The Scottish actor was best known for his portrayal of James Bond, being the first to bring the role to the big screen and appearing in seven of the spy thrillers. Sir Sean died peacefully in his sleep, while in the Bahamas, having been "unwell for some time", his son said.

His acting career spanned five decades and he won an Oscar in 1988 for his role in The Untouchables. Sir Sean's other films included The Hunt for Red October, Highlander, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and The Rock.

Jason Connery said his father "had many of his family who could be in the Bahamas around him" when he died overnight in Nassau. He said: "We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time.

"A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor."

'The original Bond'

Sir Sean, from Fountainbridge in Edinburgh, first played James Bond in Dr No in 1962 and went on to appear in five other official films - and the unofficial Never Say Never Again in 1983.

He was largely regarded as being the best actor to have played 007 in the long-running franchise, often being named as such in polls. He was knighted by the Queen at Holyrood Palace in 2000. In August, he celebrated his 90th birthday. Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said they were "devastated by the news."

Backseat Seat Belt Law Takes
Effect Sunday, November 1st

A new seat belt law is set to take effect in New York State on Sunday, requiring passengers in the back of livery and for-hire vehicles to buckle up The seat belt law comes after a decade of rear seat fatalities in New York. Over the last 10 years, 296 unbuckled rear seat passengers over the age of 16 were killed in New York state while 25,527 were injured, according to AAA. 

“AAA and other safety organizations advocated for the new law to prevent the tragic toll of death and injuries,” said Robert Sinclair, Jr., senior manager of public affairs for AAA Northeast. The measure extends the use of seat belts to virtually all cars in New York. An additional new law, requiring stretch limousines already on the road to have seat belts at every position by 2023, will take effect in January.

Unbuckled passengers in a rear seat are twice as likely to be killed and eight times as likely to be seriously injured when flung forward compared to those who are wearing seat belts.

Small sampling of readers report that the Newsletter is back up, accessible

Everything seems to check out on this end of things, but we won't know for certain what the readers' experience of the repaired and revamped website is unless we either hear from them or see the readership numbers increase. If readers experience any difficulty entering the Newsletter website, the first thing they should do is check to see if they are entering through the latest URL address which is https://www.silverlakedailynewsletter.com. If that doesn't solve the problem, then there should be a message of why it is not letting you enter. Copy and paste that message into an email addressed to SLDN@mail.com

A Taste of Winter 2020-21

Get this! The high for the Silver Lake area will be as warm as 38 at the North end and 36 at the South end. Friday's lows for Silver Lake will be 24 at the North end and 26 at the South end. A shower of rain or wet snow is possible. These temperatures are a compilation of Earth Networks, the National Weather Service, the Weather Channel, and AccuWeather.

It should be noted that Silver Lake already hit its highs for the day and temperatures are already dropping at 8 am this morning. The first noticeable "snow," just barely, was at 8:15 am as the temperatures are right around the freezing point. By 8:30 some of the white was beginning to stick to some surfaces. It was just Monday some delivery people were in short sleeves. Just one week ago today, Silver Lake's air temperature hit 79.

Covid-19 Testing Takes 2 More Jumps

UPDATED -- Statistics for Wyoming County for the last three (3) days of the month (October 29 through 31), show an increase of four (4) for each for the 29th and 30th, and three (3) for the 31st for a three-day total of 11. Just a number of months back, an increase of four in Wyoming County would have required a time period of a week or more. For whatever reason, Wyoming County is on a steady roll backward as the number of Covid-19 cases continue to increase on a regular basis.

Work continues on Newsletter; Crash did more damage than anticipated

Some regular readers continue to experience a connection problem with the Newsletter and we are working with individual readers at this point to discover what "messages" are preventing them from entering the website. Without the direct help of readers, we would not know about the problems nor would we know if and when they finally got resolved. Our sincere thanks to readers who stick with the process which at times can be frustrating.

We also continue to streamline the website and eliminate those things which add stress to the system. If you notice a regular feature missing, please feel free to let us know and we will do our best to re-incorporate it into the Newsletter.

Drug-resistant superbug thriving in hospitals hit hard by COVID-19

 BY PUBLISHED         

OVER CHRISTMAS BREAK in 2015, Johanna Rhodes received a panicked email from a doctor working at the Royal Brompton Hospital, the largest heart and lung center in the United Kingdom. A horrid yeast was invading the skin of patients, spreading through the intensive care unit even though the hospital maintained extensive protocols for infection control.

“The doctor asked me to take a look … I thought, how bad can it be?” recalls Rhodes, an infectious disease expert at Imperial College London who studies antifungal resistance. Rhodes stepped in to help one of the world’s top cardiology hospitals identify the pathogen and clear it from the premises. The germ was Candida auris, little known at the time. What she saw stunned her: “You think COVID-19 is bad until you see Candida auris.”

Candida auris is a superbug, a pathogen that can evade drugs made to kill it—and early signs suggest the COVID-19 pandemic may be propelling infections of the highly dangerous yeast. That’s because C. auris is particularly prominent in hospital settings, which have been flooded with people this year due to the coronavirus.

Newsletter Website Crashed Sunday; After 3 Days of Hard Work, it's Back!

Over the weekend, things began to malfunction. Before long there wasn't' much of anything still working and readers eventually could no longer access the site. Laying all other plans aside, the project had my full attention for the best part of 3 days, which included two overnighters! What's important is that the Newsletter is back in service--except for the Private Page which needs more work. 

I'm building the Private Page for SLI residents back the way it was--password style--which seemed to create the least amount of stress on the system. The Private Page should be back in service by week's end. At the present time, there are no new items on the Private Page. Now we just need to get some rest :0 ! 

The easily-accessed Blog Archive also hit the chopping block. It served as a convenient historical record and saved time in creating publicity. The size of the content was causing great stress on the system and this was another way of eliminating additional damaging stress.

Readers are encouraged to email me if they experience any difficulties getting in to the site or traveling through the site. Sometimes I will be experiencing nothing off kilter while readers may be having a different experience! Thanks for your help.

Erie County Man killed in Wyoming County Motorcycle Crash

A man from Erie County was killed in a crash in Wyoming County Friday evening, according to Wyoming County Sheriff's deputies. Deputies said they were called around 6:30 p.m. to Route 78 in the town of Java for a reported motorcycle crash.

When deputies arrived, they found 67-year-old Eric Reinhart had gone off the road and hit a culvert with his motorcycle, which threw him from the bike. Reinhart, who was from the town of Holland, was taken by Mercy Flight to the Erie County Medical Center; he later died there.

It remains unclear what caused Reinhart to go off the road. Members of the North Java Fire Department and Mercy Flight helped deputies on the scene.                              Courtesy of WHAM.

Spirit Airlines Fight Video Over Covid-19 Mask Goes Viral; Brawl Spilled Into the Aisle of the Puerto Rican Airplane

Record-Setting 8 Positive Cases in One Day for Wyoming County: Oct. 26th, 2020; Jumps from Record-Setting 5

Just prior to the weekend, we were cautioning about a one case jump to 5 and now on the first recording day of the new week we learn of an additional jump of three. This now takes the one-day figure for Wyoming County to 8 cases. There are just five days left in October and at this rate Wyoming will more than doubt its monthly total. 

The White House continues to denigrate the families of loved ones lost to the disease. It has added blame to doctors saying they are seeking additional funds for Covid-19 by recording more of other types of deaths recorded as Covid-19. This drew swift reaction from doctors both hurt and angered by the false narrative by our national leadership.

'Invitations' to the Newsletter's Private Page(s) for SLI Residents are Sent Out

UPDATE -- I am receiving reports that Invitations are winding up in Readers' Spam folders and other miscellaneous folders. Be sure to
check all your folders for an invitation. I will keep you posted.

Twenty-seven were in the initial batch of emails sent to SLI residents between October 23 and 24. As of 10 pm Saturday evening, the Blogger system has acknowledged each one of the sent invitations as having been sent, but none of the invitations have been automatically received on the Blogger list of permissions to enter the Private Page.

Blogger tells us that those receiving an invitation must return their acceptance of the invitation using the email through which they received the invitation. We are frustrated by the current delays and ask for your patience. Those wanting Charlie's mailing address and phone, should include that request with your invitation acceptance and I will email that information to you right away.

To those who have already responded in the affirmative to their invitations -- I am unable to add your name manually because of the safety feature that requires your acceptance. When blogger recognizes your acceptance, their system automatically adds your name (or so it is supposed to be).

Wyoming County Covid-19 Cases
Jump Up by a Record Five Today

For the first time at least since mid June, Wyoming County's Emergency Operations Center reports that five (5) new cases were recorded today, October 21, 2020. There have been a number of days when four (4) cases were reported but not five, according to our records taken from the EOC website on the date of its posting. Should the current rate of positive cases continue, Wyoming County will more than double the monthly total for October. 

Five is a significant increase for Wyoming, even though the county remains among the lowest four counties in WNY: Seneca-128;  Schuyler-100; Wyoming-172**/167**; Yates-98. The next higher county is Livingston at 250. There now seems to be a consensus that the U.S. is on its third virus surge.

**There is a regular lag or discrepancy between EOC's Case Count and the Health Department's Case Count.

In Memoriam

 Reverend William B. Caldwell
April 19, 1931 - October 3, 2020

Charleston, SC. — William Bruce Caldwell, 89, passed away in Charleston, SC on October 3, 2020, surrounded by his wife of nearly 60 years and his two daughters.

He was born in Buffalo, NY on April 19, 1931. He grew up and lived most of his adult life in Florida. He attended the University of Florida for two years before he entered the US Army for five years where he served as a Medic in Germany during the Korean War. He also spent a brief time as a medical missionary in Cuba while Fidel Castro and his rebels were in the hills.

Upon returning to Florida after his service, he finished his undergraduate degree in history at Florida Southern College. While serving in Germany, he felt the call to the ministry and continued his education at Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta GA. While he studied at Emory, he served as the Assistant Director of the Wesley Foundation at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

In January 1961, he married the love of his life, Julie Hardeman and the two began the wonderful journey serving in the Florida United Methodist Conference for over forty years. The family grew over the following years with the addition of two daughters, Ginger and Colleen.

William Caldwell was a cousin to Suzanne Trich Bristow. He spent many summers at Silver Lake as a youth and has long time connections to Silver Lake. His Father was Suzanne's mother’s brother. His mother was Fran Cook, Bob Cook’s aunt. His sister was Carol Cunius whose husband was a former SLI President.  Bill was a Methodist minister and has led worship at Epworth.  
Bill and his wife Julie enjoyed many trips abroad to the Holy Land, China, Russia and Europe. During the years their family grew with the addition of two sons-in-law, Gerard Cohen and Hugh Musser. The family was completed with the gift of two grandsons, Brent and Ben Cohen. Bill is also survived by his sister, Carol Cunius. Bill also fulfilled a life-long dream as he became a published author in 2019.
Rev. Caldwell leaves an extensive legacy of love and devotion not just to his family, but to all he was blessed to have met throughout his life. Well done, good and faithful servant.
Services will be held later in the new year in Cape Coral, Florida. Bill will also be memorized at the next annual Lake-wide Memorial Service at Silver Lake.

News Updates

THE WYOMING COUNTY count for Covid-19 continues its rise as another 4 cases were added today, Oct. 19th. This follows 3 cases two days ago, Oct. 17th and 4 cases one day earlier, Oct.16th. All of September, Wyoming's cases totaled 14. So far, the count for October is 28 and we are just over the half-way point in October.

THE NEW ACCESSIBLE bath room on Hoag's first floor is making slow, but steady progress. Slow is fine when working with an all volunteer crew. The closing of the 2020 Season has permitted the workers—all residents of SLI—to work at a comfortable rate of speed as opposed to the original deadline of being ready for this past July 1st.

BOTH THE SLI PROGRAM committee and the Silver Lake Experience Planning Committee have put together excellent programs for the 2021 Season. This is in spite of forecasts that a Covid-19 vaccine will not be available for yet another 12-18 months because of recent illnesses among test subjects. In the meantime, new treatments are coming into use to increase healing time and decrease number of deaths. At this point Season 2021 is being planned by faith, and the hope that safety practices will enable the programs to proceed.
