Lewis County is accepting bids for an engineering study of a bowling alley. The county entered a contract to buy Lewis Lanes for $1 million with plans of converting it into offices. That purchase is dependent on an appraisal and an engineering study to determine whether the building fits the county's needs. Late last year, the Board of Legislators voted to buy the building, then tried to back out of the deal, which led to a lawsuit by the bowling alley's owners and the county agreed to the purchase for a second time.
Senator Joe Griffo announced that the state has awarded $600,000 to Griffiss International Airport to cover a portion of Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance's start-up operating costs. The Federal Aviation Administration recently selected Griffiss International Airport as one of six national sites for drone aircraft development. The airport has teamed with NUAIR, which is an alliance of 40 private, academic andmilitary institutions, to lead research and testing to determine how drone aircraft can be integrated into the national airspace. The funding comes from a 2013-14 state budget allocation designated to strengthen and protect federal installations, such as in Rome, and prevent them from being closed or realigned by the federal government. The alliance has already raised more than $700,000 in private donations and in-kind services. It's anticipated the initiative will create 468 jobs and generate $10 million in tax revenue, with a $145 million total impact on the state.

The New York State Senate has passed the Public Assistance Integrity Act in a vote of 53 to 4. The proposed law would make it illegal for people to use their EBT cards at ATMs in liquor stores, casinos and strip clubs as well as keep people from using the cards to buy cigarettes, alcohol and lottery tickets. Under the proposed law, people who are caught three times could get their public benefits revoked permanently. Senators are urging the Assembly to pass the bill. Last year Congress passed a law requiring states to pass reforms that comply with federal laws restricting the use of EBT withdrawals at ATMs in liquor stores, strip clubs and casinos. If New York doesn't do so by February 22nd, it could lose more than $120 million of federal funding for social benefit programs.

As Super Bowl Sunday approaches and football fans across the country prepare for the game, the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, along with the NFL and Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management Coalition, have joined forces with Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol to spread the message about designating a sober driver on Super Bowl Sunday, because "Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk." If you're attending a Super Bowl party or watching the game at a sports bar or restaurant: Designate your sober driver, or plan another way to get home safely before the party begins. If there's no designated driver, then ask a sober friend for a ride; call a cab, friend, or family member to come and get you; or just stay the night. Never let friends drive if they have had too much to drink. If you're hosting a Super Bowl party: Make sure all your guests designate a sober driver in advance, or arrange for alternatetransportation to ensure they get home safely. Serve food and include non-alcoholic beverages at the party. Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game and begin serving coffee and dessert. Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who has had too much to drink. And remember, your seat belt is your best defense against a drunk driver in a crash.
