By James T. Mulder Staff writer A state inspection of the Vivi- an Teal Howard nursing home in Syracuse last month found bum- ing candles, matches and lighters in some residents' rooms where oxygen is in use. The state Health Department ordered the 160-bed nursing home at 116 E. Castle St. to fix the problem, which it labeled an "immediate jeopardy" deficien- cy meaning it could cause se- rious injury or death to residents if not corrected immediately. The state also cited the nurs- ing home for not assessing resi- dents to see if they are at risk of choking while eating. In a letter to the nursing home, the state said it was recommend- ing that the federal government immediately cut off Medicare and Medicaid funding for new admissions. "We required the home to take immediate action to prevent these breakdowns from happen- ing said Jeffrey W. Hammond, a Health Department spokesman. "Our investigation is ongoing." Vivian Teal Howard officials could not be reached for com- ment. The inspection took place May 11 and May 12. The letter from the state said the lighters and matches were observed in resident rooms on units where wandering resi- dents live and in rooms where oxygen is in use." One resident was observed flicking her lighter in the eleva- tor, and staffers told the inspec- tor another resident consistently CHOKING, PAGE A-4 RON an investigator with the Onondaga County Medical Examiner's Of- fice, works at the scene of Friday's crash in the town of Fabius.

David Lassman Staff photographer Pompey teen dies in tractor crash By Mike Fish Staff writer A fun tradition in farm country turned tragic Friday when a Fabius-Pompey High School sophomore was killed. Michael J. Neugebauer, 16, was driving a tractor to school. The tractor, pulling a box trail- er, collided with an all-terrain vehicle and veered off the bot- tom of a steep country road in the town of Fabius. Neuge- bauer, of 1870 Berwyn Road, Pompey, died in the crash. Two other classmates were involved in the accident, in- cluding one in the trailer be- hind the tractor, state police said. The three victims were par- ticipating in Tractor Day, an informal tradition started sev- eral years ago by high school seniors who drove tractors to school to celebrate the end of the school year, school offi- cials said. But the way troopers ex- plain state traffic laws, it ap- pears the vehicles shouldn't have been on an open road- way. State police said the driv- ers of the tractor and the all- terrain vehicle did not have drivers licenses. The driver of the tractor had a drivers per- mit, but that would allow him to drive the tractor only with a licensed passenger and only on TRAILER, PAGE A-4 How priest shortage is transforming diocese Index Business...........C-l Classified..........E-5 Comics ...M Editorials.......A-12 E-l Local news.......B-l Lottery____ New York....

Gadoua Staff writer When the Rev. James Carey was ordained in 1966, he was among 22 new priests starting ministry in the Syracuse Dio- cese. Today, Bishop James Moyni- j han will ordain three men at Syr- acuse's Cathedral of the Immac- i ulate Conception. Next year, no ordinations are scheduled. Mean- while, at least five local priests i have retired this year and at least I as many retirements are likely next year. If you go... What: Ordination of Kevin Maloney, Joseph O'Connor and Thienan Iran. When: 10 a.m. today. Where: Cathedra! of the Immaculate Conception, 259 E. Onondaga St., Syracuse. As retirements outpace ordi- nations, worshippers in the sev- en-county Roman Catholic Dio- cese of Syracuse are increasingly seeing the effects of the clergy shortage. Parishes that once housed a pastor and several resi- dent priests typically have one priest, or a fraction of a priest's time. Many priests minister to more than one parish. Fewer Peter Chen Staff photographer THE REV. Paul Carman during the Mass of the Feast of the Sa- cred Heart at St. Joseph Church in Camillus. Carman has been re- assigned to LaFayette, where he will minister to people in sever- al parishes due to a shortage of priests. Masses are celebrated, and most priests juggle multiple assign- ments. "It's hard for most priests to keep up with all they have to do." Carey said.

NYSERDA teamed with the Onondaga County Resource Re- covery Agency to collect the old window units from 8 a.m. to noon June 18 at the Ley Creek Trash Transfer Station in Salina. No appointment is necessary. OCRRA normally charges to in fees to those who drop off an old air conditioner, said spokesman Andy Brigham.
