Glossy material recycling day set ELIZABETHTOWN — Essex County is sponsoring a one-day magazine, catalog and newspaper insert drive, Saturday, Nov. 7 at the following transfer stations during normal operating hours: Chesterfield, Lewis- Elizabethtown, Keene, Moriah, Newcomb, North Elba, Schroon, St. Armand, Ticonderoga and SL Library seeks to prevent village funding cuts By KATHLEEN SCOTTVAUGHN Enterprise Staff Writer SARANAC LAKE — Officials from the Saranac Lake Free Library expressed concerns to the Village Board Tuesday about a proposal to cut funding to local special interest groups. The library representatives spoke out against the proposal, explain- ing they believe the library serves the entire local population, not just a specific section of the commun- ity such as a certain age group. The representatives provided the trustees with statistics about library use, saying that since July, 19, 105 visits have been made to the facility. The library is working on a $115,381 annual budget of which $6,500 is provided by the village. Earlier this year trustees propos- ed the idea to cut all funding to special interest groups to end dou- ble taxation by the village and area towns. The idea was that the towns would pick up the village's con- tribution. \We do count on the support of the village,\ said Chuck Brumley, library treasurer. Librarian Betsy Whitefield stressed that the library serves ev- eryone in the community, from kids doing after-school research to adults. Mayor William Madden III sug- gested that the library could ask for more money from the local school district, which requests money from the voters each year when it seeks budget approval from the taxpayers. The library of- ficials said the idea has been thought of, however; they have been trying to be conservative in their requests. trustee Ray Scollin said that even if the village continued fun- ding the library, the principle of double taxation would still be present. \This should be something you pay for only once,\ he explained. He said that after the board meets with all the special interest groups it will likely talk with town repre- sentatives to determine whether they would accept the burden. \I don't want you to lose fun- ding. The intent is to get the towns to pay their share,\ Scollin said. Trustee Reginald Perras, who was on vacation when trustees first an- nounced the idea, reiterated his opposition to the proposal. 'I'm opposed to this entire pro- ceeding,\ he said. He said each group is important in its own right and believes the trustees are forc- ing the groups to \justify their existence.\ He reminded trustees that the proposal was never passed by resolution. Trustee Dennis Dwyer stressed that the idea is just a proposal and the village is researching the mat- ter. \It is not written in stone,\ he said. Other groups that have already presented their views to the village include the Getaway Youth Center and the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce. In other business Tuesday the board approved a bid to replace a water main, running from the vil- lage pump house to the reservoir off View Street. Architectural and Engineering Design Associates of Pittsburgh will replace the main for $26,600, which will be paid for through a grant the village receiv- ed earlier this year. In other business trustees approv- ed rate increases for skiing at Mt. Pisgah, which is expected to open ,for the skiing season just before Ortloff, Hannon continue light for 110th district By MATTHEW RUSSELL Enterprise Staff Writer SANTA CLARA — Once part of the 113th Assembly District, voters in this small township are now within the 110th Assembly District and will be represented after the coming election by either incumbent Chris Ortioff, R-Platt- sburgh, or his Democratic chal- lenger Joanne Hannon of Bell- mont. Ortloff used to represent voters in the towns of. Harrietstown, Franklin and Brighton, but fol- lowing redistricting this year those three towns were dropped from the district, although Santa Clara was added. . Hannon is the supervisor of die town ;,pf Bellmont, a -retired schoolteacher and teacher's union leader. She is also the chairwoman of the Franklin County Associa- tion of Mayors and Supervisors. Ortloff, a Lake Placid native, is a former newsman who has served in the Assembly since 1986. Ortloff is touting his experience in state government as a major reason why he should be returned to office. Hannon says Ortloff, as a Republican in the Democrat- ically-controlled Assembly, has been ineffective in Albany, whereas she.as a Democrat would be able to do more for her North Country constituents. Early in the campaign, Ortioff accepted the endorsement of the state teachers union, viewed by many as embarrassing for Hannon, a former union leader. But Hannon countered that the union always backs incumbents with a good ed- ucational voting record. Later, Hannon's Independent party petitions were successfully challenged by a Republican cam- paign worker, and Hannon was dropped from the Independent ticket Hannon said she has recently been focusing her campaign on the three major population centers in the 110th District —• Plattsburgh, Malone and Massena. She has at- tacked Ortloff's voting record, asserting that the Assemblyman's votes reveal a representative who is anti-consumer, anti-tenant and anti-woman. But Ortloff has defended his voting record, asserting that he has sponsored or co-sponsored legis- lation to reform the \tax and spend\ practices of the Assembly, legislation to halt endless govern- ment borrowing, reform education and clean up the environment LPCA seeks art works for '93 show LAKE PLACID — A major ex- hibition of paintings and photog- raphs by prominent nineteenth and twentieth centuries landscape ar- tists will be held next summer, from July 23 Uirough Sept 6, 1993, at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.
