Patients & visitors at Lewis County General Hospital & Residential Healthcare Facility are being reminded that they need to enter the facility from the Number 3 Road entrance as the Route 26 entrance is closed & no traffic will be allowed through so initial site work can be completed for the Hospital's Dialysis Project. Patients can be dropped off at the Route 26 circle entrance only. Pedestrian traffic is also being barricaded from the work zonethroughout the duration of the project to ensure public safety. This will result in the loss of a few handicap parking spots. Handicap parking will remain available in the Main Entrance/Route 26 Circle side as well as onthe Number 3 Road side near the Children's Clinic/Rehab Entrance. Several temporary handicap parking spots have been added in the main patient & visitor parking lot. The Emergency Department entrance is not being affected by the construction project.

In anaddress to the New York State Senate, Major General Stephen Townsend stated that with the Army planning to cut between eight and 12 brigades, the odds of the division losing one are pretty good, adding that if sequestration continues, it might force the Army to eliminate as many as twice the number of brigades as planned for now. Townsend was addressing the Senate as part of 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum Day, which was the second time the Senate recognized Fort Drum for its role in national defense and for what the post means to the regional economy.
