Here’s a look at some of the stories making headlines today:
Voting Rights Act at 50: Even after a half-century of election law that was intended to settle the question of who is eligible to vote in the United States, contentious issues remain on who gets that right.
Holy cow: More than 40 reporters from Syracuse.com/the Syracuse Media Group headed out to the first day of the Great New York State Fair with the mission of taste-testing the offerings of every single food vendor. You can read their reviews here.
And don’t forget: If you’re going to the Fair on Sunday, you can go to Mass there too! Catholic Mass will be celebrated on Sunday, Aug. 30 and Sunday, Sept. 6 at 9 a.m. in the Empire Theatre. Father Joseph Clemente will preside. All are welcome.
