Sheriff offers Super Bowl safety tips

on Saturday, 01 February 2014.

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 alternate
transportation 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.

Water Act passes in Congress

on Friday, 25 October 2013.

Congressmen Bill Owens & Richard Hanna voted in favor of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act which passed the House by a vote of 417-3. A bill Congressman Owens cosponsored was included in the act, which means for the first time, the Great Lakes waterways, including the Saint Lawrence Seaway will be designated as a single, unified navigation system, which will directly benefit New York by allowing the system's ports and waterways to bid on government funds for infrastructure projects as a single entity, instead of competing against each other for the same funds. The act also reauthorizes the National Dam Safety Program, which funds dam repairs, safety research and training, and the development of emergency action plans. The North Country region alone has 180 aging dams that are deemed high-hazard or significant-hazard, because their failure would significantly threaten life and property.
