    On Tuesday voters could decide how the Onondaga County government will move forward with budget plans. A proposal on the ballot asks voters to check “yes” or “no” for reducing the number of legislators and districts in the county. If the majority of voters decide “yes”, the county will start planning a redistricting process to remove two representative seats.

              • Sacred Paradox: The Onondaga Lake Project

                Onondaga Lake, which borders the city of Syracuse, NY, is a Superfund cleanup site and a holy lake for the Onondaga Indian Nation. I have explored this paradox, photographing the lake and its tributaries from a canoe and on shore. I find the lake gorgeous at times and repulsive at others. Raw sewage flows into the lake during heavy rains, as the municipal wastewater treatment plant is overwhelmed. Algae grows in the phosphorus-rich waters, giving off a stink in the summer. Mercury and other heavy metals lie on the bottom of the lake -- remnants of chemical industry in years past. Swimming has been banned since 1940. Still, bald eagles have taken up residence on the lake, and great blue herons are numerous. The lake is an extreme example of much of our natural world: polluted yet still achingly beautiful. I hope that my images will cause viewers to contemplate our relationship to the natural world and consider our impact. I also hope to inspire people to explore this lake, which remains captivating despite its long history of abuse. Still images from the project are on my website, www.WillsonCummer.com
