Experience has shown times as fast as that of all other that my expectation was drivers. reasonable. Thanks to our 21-year-old The 1986 Youth Alcohol Survey alcohol purchase age, as well as conducted for the New York programs such as our \Athletes State Division of Alcoholism and Against Drunk Driving\ which Alcohol Abuse by \Action Sur- uses professional athletes to veys\ discovered several hear· educate students to the perils of tening facts about the alcohol drinking and driving, and our consumption habits of New York's STOP DWI efforts, our young youths. During the last year, people are changing their habits. They're getting smart enough not to drink and drive. And more of them are alive today because of what they have learned. As a society, we still have a problem with drinking and driving. As long as there are any deaths because someone got behind the wheel of a car after consuming alcohol, there is a problem. We have to work hard to convince people to stop risking their own lives, as well as the lives of others. We will continue to work to educate our youth to the dangers of drinking and driving. To the Editor: Recently, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts passed a law enabling consumers to purchase reading glasses over-the-counter. New York, on the other hand, remains one of only three states where it. is illegal to purchase reading glasses without a prescription. As a physician, I believe this legislative oversight is significant. There are currently more than three million older New Yorkers who suffer from presbyopia, the inability to focus on small print. I have to ask - why are these New Yorkers being denied a simple, yet effective product, that couId aid their vision? reading glasses and cannot hurt the eye. State Senator Joseph Bruno should be applauded for his bill, which would overturn the current, antiquated law and save New York consumers millions on unneeessary eyewear. The bill is expected to be voted on in the current legislative session. I would ask your readers to write their local state senator and assemblyman to urge their support for this bill that will save New Yorkers millions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs. Sincerely, Dr. Calvin W. Roberts Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology among New Yorkers ages 16-20: - Alcohol purchases dropped by 56 percent; - Alcohol consumption fell 20 percent; Fishing Derby Dates Set The answer lies in the profit markup. Reading glasses retail for about $12 in other states, but in New York the price can be as much as $75. However, these glasses perform identically to Cornell University Medical College Attending Surgeon-Director of Cornea Service - Drinking to intoxication dropped by 33 percent; Drinking and driving decreased by 21 percent. These reductions are based on comparisons with findings from the 1985 Youth Alcohol Survey when New York's minimum purchase age was 19. The change in alcohol consump- tion habits by our young people, especially the decrease in dri ving after drinking, is good news. It is leading to a savings of lives all over our State. Fewer drunk teenage drivers means fewer young people killed and injured on our roads. Our latest data shows that since the purchase age increased to 21, ,p t~.

NYU Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, New York City Job Seekers Asked to Send Resumes to Job Bank State Labor Commissioner Lillian Roberts is urging jobs seekers, especially professional and technical workers, to take advantage of the Job Service's new Resume Clearinghouse program. The implementation of the new job matching system began last month. \Resumes have begun to come into local Job Service offices throughout the state,\ she said. \As soon as we have a sufficient number of resumes on file, we will make them available to interested employers. \ Information from resumes submitted is input into the depart- ment's computerized system. As soon as comparable job orders are listed by employers, requirements specified by the employer are matched to applicants' resume qualifications deposited in the Job Service \Talent Bank.\ \This system ensures that employers receive only pre- screened resumes from appli- cants determined by Job Service staff to be qualified for the position. Job seekers also benefit from the new on-line system because many additional job opportunities are made available to them,\ said Commissioner Roberts. She also noted that the new system will benefit job seekers by giving them more exposure to potential employers, while em- ployers will have the opportunity to review a broad field of can- didates without commiting themselves. \We will protect the anonymity of employers until they permit us to notify the job candidate,\ Commissioner Roberts said. \We will also preserve the privacy of job seekers by deleting their names, addresses and other personal information from the resumes initially supplied to employers. \ The Labor Department regards the new program as a logical extension of the statewide com- puterized \Talent Bank\ operated by the Job Service thorugh its employment offices throughout the state. \We see the Job Service a~ a 'Talent Bank' because it contains a wealth of valuable assets - the thousands of skilled workers who can be withdrawn by the state's employers,\ Commissioner Roberts said. ~--------------~-----------------~ I I I I New and Improved I I 1 1 I I I I I I Livonia Gazette- Honeoye Falls Times Lima Recorder - Honeoye Lake Courier at the new low price of $1 0 OO/year addS1.50lt ,\ .\ ' ...., ,aut ot county \ , ':'. 1 r Please indica!!!
