It’s A Raid!


bingoThe law-abiding citizenry of beautiful Baldwinsville in Central New York can rest easy, now that hands-on mayor Joe Saracini has finally cracked down on that den of crime and gambling known as the Canton Woods Senior Center.  Can you imagine, those sinful old folk were gambling for as much as 50 cents on games of chance like bingo?  Rumor has it that one elderly lady got lucky and invested her winnings in a pound of hamburger at the local P&C, which she used to supplement her macaroni diet for a week.  This could not continue!  When told about it, the mayor acted quickly to put an end to this illegal and immoral bingo, poker, and pinochle activity, taking  all those illicit pennies, dimes, and yes, quarters, off the tables.  Can you imagine all this going on right in the center of town?  Another Turningstone Casino in the making!  All those potential taxes going uncollected.


Now some may argue that the mayor’s job is not to harass our Seniors, but to address the village’s many real problems with traffic, crime, trash collection, snow removal, and carp fishing, but not our Mayor Joe.  Those minor issues tend to take care of themselves.  But gambling by Senior Citizens?  Word is that there is a restaurant in town conducting football pools, and they are next in the mayor’s sights.  We wish him well come election time.

  1. OK, I guess I should explain about the hamburger. My friend sez it was expired and on sale at 1/2 price: she didn’t win THAT much! That old staple of the senior, pet food, is no longer affordable.
