Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol and Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente are announcing that the Oneida County Sheriff's Office will join over 1500 law enforcement agencies nationwide and more than 40New York agencies in using the Offender Watch Program. This will make available a citizen-friendly, easy to use, Oneida County sex offender registry enabling citizens to search for the presence of registered sex offenders and predators in proximity to their homes, place of work, schools and day cares. Citizens may enter any address and see a map and listing of offenders within a user defined radius of that address. Then, they may register the address to be continuously monitored by the Sheriff and local law enforcement agencies. If an offender or predator should register an address within their specified radius of their address citizens will be alerted. Citizens may confidentially register as many addresses as they like. Anytime an offender changes their address, a postcard size notification will be mailed out to every residence within the defined radius of the offender. The Program is expected to be up and running throughout the county within 30 to 60 days
The New York State Senate passed legislation to address the threat posed to the public by legal but dangerous drugs. The bill was co-sponsored by Senator Joe Griffo & criminalizes the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana and bath salts. A law banning the sale of bath salts was enacted in 2011, and the New York State Department of Health has banned the sale and distribution of synthetic marijuana through an Order for Summary Action. However, possession of these substances, which may be purchased outside the state or via the Internet, continues to be legal. The new bill criminalizes the possession of these products with penalties for the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana and bath salts would be similar to those of marijuana and methamphetamines. A state database would also be created and available on the New York State Department of Health's website to provide retailers, law enforcement, and the general public with a listing of trade names, physical descriptions, brand names and images of the various products known to be either synthetic marijuana or bath salts. The bill has been sent to the Assembly.
Efforts for another round of military base closings have stalled, saving Fort Drum and other military installations across the country. A Senate panel this week approved legislation rejecting the Defense Department's request to close installations and facilities in the United States that are no longer needed as the military branches cut the number of troops in uniform. The House Armed Services Committee said no to more base closings last week. New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who is the chairwoman of the Senate Armed Services readiness subcommittee, stated that the upfront costs of starting a new round of base closures are too high.

Lewis County will develop procedures on how to handle former employees. The action comes after former trailcoordinator Robert Diehl was given access to his former office & computer. Diehl was fired in February for alleged misconduct, had requested access to the office to retrieve personal items. Legislator Paul Stanford had raised concerns that granting Diehl access could affect the criminal proceedings against him as he faces charges of grand larceny third-degree, offering a false instrument for filing first-degree and official misconduct. Board Chairman Tabolt requested the Human Resources Committee develop specific procedures concerning fired employees in the future.

An oil truck went into a ditch on Route 12 in the Town of Trenton yesterday around 9 AM and ended up tilted on its side. It’s unknown whether slippery roads were the reason. Another tanker came to remove the oil from the oil truck and there were no injuries to report according to officials.
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver confirmed this morning that an overhaul of the state’s marijuana laws to reduce stop and frisk arrests is part of the ongoing budget negotiations.
Silver stated it wasn’t about marijuana decriminalization, but curtailing stop and frisk arrests, adding that it is likely to be limited to New York City.
Silver, along with Senate Co-Presidents Jeff Klein and Dean Skelos, had another hour-long closed-door meeting with Gov. Andrew Cuomo and it’s reported there was no deal yet on a final budget plan.
Lawmakers are not scheduled to be in Albany after March 21 for two weeks in order to accommodate the Passover and Easter holidays.
Other budget issues include a deal to increase the state’s minimum wage to $9 a hour by the end of 2015, with several phased-in hikes starting in 2014.
The Senate Republican leader said about $700 million in tax breaks and credits have been agreed to, with a possible alteration of the state’s 18a assessment utility surcharge part of that deal.
The Long Island GOP lawmaker also said it was likely the millionaire’s tax would be extended a year early.
