The county legislature turned down options calling for the construction of a new facility in the existing north parking lot and a proposal Kaplan acknowledged he person- ally felt the proposal to build a new two-story building behind the exist- ing courthouse made the most sense for county officials. He said he was concerned with any prop- osal that could harm the architec- tural integrity of tHe stone courthouse. —---That plan also calls for are addi;-r tional 30 parking spots for the courthouse complex.

The Marjorie Lyke was \docked at the Ogdensburg Port Monday while 16 government officers and two K-9 units from the Potsdam Police De- partment went aboard to look for drugs, according to Jeffrey Walg- reen, the district spokesman. - \We had reason to suspect narco- tics were being transported on the vessel,\ said Walgreen. \There was no contraband found, but we had reason to suspect that crew mem- bers manifested for the trip had- prior drug records.

However, an Jon-board search was not conducted \due to staffing, problems,\ said Walgreen.*-\It con- tinued on from Virginia and made stops in Montreal and went onto Ogdensburg before we could con- duct the search.\ He said the officials had received information about the crew of the ship because the vessel had just re- turned from a three and a half month trip around the world. \It had made stops in the Me- diterranean and in India before coming to Newport News,\ he ex- plained. Those .^re.kno^n places \for-'.'drug trafficking.\ He said officers from the Ogdens- burg and St. Albans, Vermont Con- traband Enforcement Teams were in charge of the search and that two K-9 units from the Potsdam Village Police and two officerrfrom the Ogdensburg Border Patrol as- sisted in the search. \There were 16 government offi- cials in all involved in the search,\ said Walgreen.-\It was a good ex- perience for the men. It was a way to see how well they could work together from both ends of the St. Lawrence Seaway. \It was good to se them put it all together so cjuickly..and respond to the investrg^ation,\' Walgreen added. That is an excellent sign.\ County officials will need to au- thorise spending funds for the pro- ject before the new office space be,- comes a reality.

But county officials were put under the gun when the Office for Court Administration ordered all counties to submit a plan detailing their proposal to meet state man- dates for court space by Aug. 7. County officials have said the county's present court facilities to not meet the state's requirements. Kaplan reminded legislators that if the county does, not present a prop- osal to the state by Aug. 7,.the Of- fice for Court Administration has threatened :.to, devetOp their own- plan, build the additional space-and then bill the county for the work. 1 SpQ MaN TT% enough by iviay trjne forlthe printed program.
