The secretary of the High Market Wheelers ATV club voiced concerns to the Lewis County Legislature regarding where event fees for special events are being spent.
According to an article in the Johnston Newspapers , Patricia J. White, presented her concerns on how other clubs are handling money collected from fundraising during all-terrain vehicle rides.
Ms. White has said that several recent rides advertised to raise funds for the Lewis County trail fund. When asked, Recreational Trail Coordinator Jacqueline L. Mahoney, said the county has received no funds.
Citing language from event posters and Internet postings from two events sponsored by the Tug Hill Adirondack ATV Association, Mrs. White said participants are led to believe profits are going to the county for trail development and maintenance.
Joseph Onyon, president of Tug Hill Adirondack ATV Association, denied the wording on the posters was misleading and said that “All the money collected by the Tug Hill Adirondack ATV Association does go back into the system.
Legislator Richard C. Lucas, owner the Montague Inn said last week that even though the county never sees the funds, the money benefits the trail system. He went on to say that “Money went to the ATV association, which is then put right into the trails.

As was reported this morning on the National News, Congress has approved legislation to end the government shutdown and extend the debt limit. President Barack Obama signed the bill this morning. The Senate acted first, passing the bill 81-18. New York's U.S. senators, U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, both supported the measure. The bill was then sent to the House, where it passed by a vote of 285-144. U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, and U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, both voted for the continuing resolution and debt limit extension. The bill allows the government to stay open until another resolution scheduled for January and a vote on the debt ceiling will come up again in February. It is estimated that the government shut down took 24 Billion dollars out of the economy.

There was extensive damage to the attic and roof as well as heavy smoke damage throughout the structure. There were workers in the home earlier in the day but no one was in the residence at the time of the fire. The source of the fire was determined to be an electric wire short in the attic caused by a staple holding the wire. It is unknown if there was any insurance on the building.
