On Thursday’s (Oct. 7) Happening in Homer segment:

Two guests joined an exciting discussion on developments with youth programing in the village.

Recreation director Zach Pollak says registration for the John Tobin Basketball League will be live mid-next week.

Boys and girls in grades 3-6 are invited to sign up. The league combines players from across the county, with Homer teams matching up against others from Cortland, Dryden, Groton and McGraw.

Also featured on the segment was Steve Williams, who recently took on an informal role as public information officer for the village and will ramp up its social media pages, among other duties.

He also runs a small business — Highkey Science — that offers youth STEM activities/events throughout Central New York. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Williams currently rents a previously vacant building (old rec center) behind the village fire department.

Out of this space, he operates a convenient work environment for kids, which includes a small computer lab with full internet access. Additionally, Williams helps many students with their learning as a reliable tutor.
