Bids have gone out for the design phase of the new airport terminal at Griffiss International Airport in Rome. Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente says that the hopes are that the new terminal, along with the 1,500 jobs being created from the new QUAD-C Building at SUNYIT and other expected nanotechnology jobs to follow, will be enough to lure a commercial airline to fly out of Oneida County. Bids will be accepted over the next few months with the county then going out to bid for actual construction. Picente added that if all goes well, a commercial airline could set up shop at Griffiss sometime late next year.
Residents of the Carthage Central School District are being asked what should be done about the former Great Bend Elementary School. The building currently houses administrative offices for the district, although some have been moved to other buildings. District officials stated that the building has become the most expensive building in the district to maintain & has become economically inefficient to run that building. Any renovations could not be funded with state aid, due to not enough students being in the building for it to qualify. A public forum to discuss what should be done will be held by the school district from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 12th at the building with self-guided tours beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Governor Cuomo announced that New York State Police were successful in 15% of Automated External Defibrillators saves for individuals under sudden cardiac arrest, which is a rate of almost double the national average of 8%. All marked State Police vehicles and state buildings are equipped with the devices, and troopers are given comprehensive, special training to use them in emergency situations. According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 people across the country will suffer from sudden cardiac arrest this year alone. By giving an electric shock to the heart to help reestablish normal heart function, use of an AED along with early CPR is one of the most effective treatments for restoring a regular heart rhythm. The Division of State Police began training members and equipping all marked State Police vehicles with AEDs in2007. More than 6,000 employees of the State Police have completed training in the use of AEDs and CPR.
