State tax collections through May rose 25.8% from collections during this same period last year. State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli reported that the $12.6 billion in collections was primarily due to non-recurring estimated Personal Income Tax payments made in April. Personal Income Tax collections grew 33.3% through May 31, compared to the same period last year. However, more than 87% of this growth is due to estimated tax collections from April, primarily driven by federal tax increases in January. DiNapoli adds that this level of growth is not likely to continue. The General Fund closing balance of $3.7 billion at the end of May was $287.9 million higher than Enacted Budget projections. This reflects $448.9 million in higher than anticipated receipts offset by $161 million in higher than anticipated spending.

The Pentagon announced a reorganization of the Army yesterday that will result in a net loss of 1,500-2,000 soldiers from Fort Drum. In announcing the loss of the 3rd Brigade Combat team, Fort Drum Commander Major General Stephen Townsend said he doesn’t expect the overall reduction to have a significant impact at the base and he expects additional maneuver battalions to be assigned to the remaining brigades.
The 3rd brigade will be inactivated by 2017 and its remaining troops will be absorbed into the 1st and 2nd Brigades. Known as the Spartans, the 3rd Brigade was activated at Fort Drum in September 2004. Since then, the Spartans have deployed three times to Afghanistan. Pentagon officials said that this loss is not related to sequestration.
While over 13 million people watched Nick Wallenda walk a tight wire over the Grand Canyon on Sunday night, many local old timers will remember that Nick’s Famous family used to perform at the Enchanted Forest in Old Forge. Before Enchanted Forest became known as New York State’s largest water-theme Park, it used to be a regular theme park with shows and rides, part of which still exist today.
The famous Flying Wallendas were part of Enchanted Forest's lineup at times between 1956 and 1976. According to the park, the daily circus shows featured the internationally known Great Wallendas. Part of an NBC special documentary, as well as a CBS documentary on the Wallendas was filmed at the Enchanted Forest. In fact, Nick’s grandfather, Karl Wallenda performed in Old Forge the same day as the funeral for his son-in-law who was killed in one of the family's stunts. Wallenda said, "People are coming from hundreds of miles to see us. I don't see any reason why they should not see us. I don't want to cheat them out of that."
Karl died in March of 1978 after a fall from the tight rope while performing in Puerto Rico. 33 year old Grandson Nick successfully walked across a 1500 feet deep gorge of the Grand Canyon, Sunday night without a restraining harness.
