The U.S. Marshals Service arrested a 21-year-old man Wednesday in Cold Brook on a parole violation charge. Mark D. Gauthier, 21, was arrested without incident at a home on Main Street after marshals say he was found hiding in a crawl space in the attic.

Governor Cuomo announced yesterday $10 million in Brownfield Opportunity Areas grants for 26 communities throughout the state.In our area, Lewis County and the Village of Lyons Falls will receive $553,761 tocomplete an implementation strategy to return four brownfield sites back to productive use with an emphasis on redevelopment of the abandoned Lyons Falls pulp and paper mill site to create business opportunities, increase employment and complete improvements in Downtown Lyons Falls. Brownfields are defined as dormant properties where the presence or potential presence of contamination has impeded site redevelopment, turning the properties into economic and environmental drains on localities. The grants provide funding for municipalities to implement revitalization strategies that are necessary in order to redevelop impacted sites. Once redeveloped, brownfield sites become community assets that can attract businesses, jobs, and ultimately expand the local tax base.
Lewis County Public Health has appointed an animal control officer. Director of Public Health Penny Ingham announced that Heath L. Ash, the new animal control officer, will operate on an as-needed basis. MS Ingham told the Johnston Newspaper group that the new position is part of the county’s rabies control program. Mr. Ash is not the rabies control officer, which is a role held by a veterinarian. The county is still looking to fill the position of the late Dr. Harry P. O’Connor, who died earlier this month. If the vaccination status of an animal cannot be determined, Mr. Ash will be called to locate or work with pet owners.
