Seneca Lake has blue-green algae

SENECA LAKE--The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has confirmed a harmful algae bloom (HAB) in Seneca Lake. According to a report from the Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association (SLPWA), the bloom is located along the northeast shore near Kime Beach southeast of Geneva in Seneca County.

Almanac predicts another harsh winter
Almanac predicts another harsh winter

FINGER LAKES--According to the 2015-16 Farmer's Almanac, the northeast will have another winter of cold temperatures and increased snowfall. The almanac predicts most of the north central states, the Great Lakes, New England and parts of the Ohio Valley will have "snowier-than-normal conditions" in its forecast. It states over the northeast and mid-Atlantic states, the winter will be stormy with a good amount of snow, "red-flagging" the second week of January and the second week of February for possible heavy winter weather with a long, drawn out spell of stormy weather extending through much of the first half of March. "It's like winter déjà vu," Farmer's Almanac Editor Peter Geiger said. "Last year our bitterly cold, shivery forecasts came true in many states including the 23 eastern states that experienced one of their top-10 coldest Februarys on record. This year many of these same states may want to get a jump start now and stock up on lots of winter survival gear: sweaters, long johns, and plenty of firewood."

A blooming paradise on Decatur Street
A blooming paradise on Decatur Street

WATKINS GLEN--In the summer, as people drive down Decatur Street in Watkins Glen, most slow down to enjoy the flowers as they approach Sixth Street. Some simply stare, others stop and talk. When there's more than one person in the car, "Sometimes I can see by the expression on their face, I can tell they're talking about the yard," says Milagros (Mila) Whiting. "I usually make the first move and go over to them. They say, we always come here every year."
The colorful display of a corner lot in bloom is a labor of love for Whiting and her sister, Mirla Hall. They've known about the magic of growing things from their childhood in Manila, Philippines, where their father was a landscaper, through much shorter summers in Alaska where they lived while their husbands worked there for the Air Force, to the move Whiting made to Watkins Glen with her husband and young son, to be near her husband's family.

Andrew Cuomo announced the funding Thursday, Aug. 13 as part of $114 million in zero and low-interest loans to support improvements at 16 wastewater facilities and four drinking water systems.

Businesses prepare for Phish fan rush

WATKINS GLEN--The Phish Magnaball festival will run for three days at Watkins Glen International this weekend, starting Friday, Aug. 21and concluding Sunday, Aug. 23. The show sold out ahead of the event, which County Administrator Tim O'Hearn has previously said brought some $500,000 in sales tax revenue the last time the band visited the area in 2011. This year's event is expected to have similar results, as village businesses prepare to accommodate the sudden rush of Phish fans. Jim Guild, owner of Famous Brands on North Franklin Street, said the last time the band visited was "really good for business." He noted the weekends during the summer are already good, so the added fans coming into the area only make it better.

Baptist church gets stained glass repairs
Baptist church gets stained glass repairs

DUNDEE--The Dundee Baptist Church completed a project to repair some of their stained glass windows last week. The total project focused on four windows in the church, along with the windows located in the building's tower, costing approximately $32,000 total. The project is taking some two weeks to complete. The work includes the large window facing Seneca Street and a smaller window to its left, along with the two windows directly across from it. Chris Dieter, project supervisor with Bovard Studio Inc. of Fairfield, Iowa, said they had a four man crew working on the windows, replacing mismatched or broken glass pieces. Dieter added the contract also called for a new protective storm window covering, as the old coverings were not functioning well. Dieter noted it is important to have proper ventilation as well, or else condensation can form, which will cause the lead in the stained glass window to decay faster. He said some of the lead is from the late 1800s.

Greenidge will restart with gas
Greenidge will restart with gas

DRESDEN--Greenidge Generation, LLC announced last week they will be restarting their power plant without the use of coal. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has published for public comment a draft Title V permit. This permit approves the facility's application to restart the facility by firing biomass and natural gas. The facility will subsequently convert its generating operations to natural gas as the primary fuel. Greenidge previously was authorized to operate on biomass and natural gas under its prior Title V permit, and will be restored to full operation from its temporary protective layup status. The DEC has accepted Greenidge's proposal to include in the Title V Permit enforceable language that permanently eliminates the ability of the facility ever to run on coal.

Finger Lakes wineries have music in the air
Finger Lakes wineries have music in the air

FINGER LAKES--On many a summer evening, after the usual business hours for wine tasting are over, a few wineries remain open to offer old and new customers a chance to kick back and enjoy live, open-air music, sunset views, picnic foods and the company of others. Everyone benefits, from local bands with old and new fans, to caterers and food trucks and of course, the wineries themselves. Attendees are invited to buy wine from the host winery and food to go with it; the winery pays the bands but the musicians welcome tips. In most instances, there's no cover charge--the events are a combination of party and community.

Tourism numbers increase, but lag state trend
Tourism numbers increase, but lag state trend

FINGER LAKES--According to a recent tourism study by Philadelphia-based Tourism Economics, Yates County saw 2.2 percent more traveler spending in 2014 than it did in 2013. Tourism Economics is part of the Oxford Economics Company headquartered in Oxford, England that provides economic analysis, forecasts and consulting advice. Traveler spending increased to $62,523,000 in 2014, up from $61,177,000 in 2013. However, Yates County's growth is somewhat less than the Finger Lakes average of 3.9 percent growth. The report compares the tourism spending among 14 Finger Lakes counties, which includes Yates, Schuyler, Steuben, Cayuga, Chemung, Cortland, Livingston, Monroe, Onondaga, Ontario, Seneca, Tioga, Tompkins and Wayne Counties. Yates County Chamber of Commerce President Mike Linehan gave a presentation to the legislature Monday, Aug. 10, saying the county's growth was "under average," compared to the Finger Lakes region

County looks at outlet trail ownership
County looks at outlet trail ownership

YATES COUNTY--Finger Lakes Economic Development Center CEO Steve Griffin and Friends of the Outlet Trail member Dave Reeve gave a presentation on the Keuka Outlet Trail to the Yates County Legislature Monday, Aug. 10. The pair recommended the county take over ownership of the path, citing recent struggles to maintain the trail. Reeve said the trail has suffered erosion damage from the May 2014 floods, with Griffin adding the county would more easily be able to conduct the necessary repairs and improvements with minimal financial investment and in-kind services. Griffin said he would like to help focus municipalities into investing in their community beyond state mandates, citing the economic benefits an enhanced trail could have in the area.

Area hotels, motels see high demand for race weekend
Area hotels, motels see high demand for race weekend

FINGER LAKES--It is no surprise that race weekend brings thousands of visitors to the area, so when it comes to finding a place to stay, hotels, motels and inns tend to fill up quickly. With the added demand, room prices will usually rise as well, with some rates surpassing $300 or $400. However, while many places are sold out for race weekend, it is still possible to find a handful of available rooms on short notice. The REVIEW&EXPRESS called the hotels, motels and inns within the area that had 90 or more reviews on TripAdvisor.com to see what rooms they had available for Saturday night, Aug. 8, before the race Sunday, Aug. 9. These lodgings were located within the Watkins Glen, Penn Yan, Hammondsport, Bath, Elmira, Geneva, Horseheads and Corning areas.

Legislators react to new budget roles
Legislators react to new budget roles

YATES COUNTY--The Yates County Legislature appointed Winona Flynn as the new budget officer Monday, Aug. 10, during their regular meeting. This comes in the wake of County Administrator Sarah Purdy stepping down from the role, having previously served in that capacity for the past 19 years. Flynn said the budget process will be different this year, adding she is hoping for a multi-year focus along with greater efficiencies between the departments. "One of the main differences will be that now I have put the budget in our financial software package, which is the Municipal Information Systems (MUNIS)," Flynn said. "I think there will be a lot of efficiencies saved because it is now in our financial package so it is tied in with all of our revenue and expenditures, and the historical is there."

Greenidge plant may open in October
Greenidge plant may open in October

DRESDEN--Since the plant ceased operations in 2011, plans are now underway to have the Greenidge Power Plant in Dresden back online. The 104-megawatt coal-powered facility is owned by Atlas Holdings LLC, which is based in Greenwich, Connecticut. Atlas Public Affairs Representative Michael McKeon said the company expects the plant to be operational by late fall or early winter. A public comment period on the project was held by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). Dresden Mayor Bill Hall said he was told the plant could open in October or early November, adding everything looked good from the public comment standpoint. McKeon said they must still go through the DEC and possibly Environmental Protection Agency process before they can open. Atlas expects this project to restore 30 local jobs once it is fully operational.

Camps are busy this summer
Camps are busy this summer

FINGER LAKES--One of the highlights for many area children each summer includes the opportunity to go to summer camp. Along with the variety of crafts and waterfront activities, kids have the opportunity to see their friends and make new ones from outside the area. With several camps in the area, there are many summertime experiences awaiting the region's children. The Hidden Valley 4-H Camp in the Watkins Glen State Park is in its 70th year of operation and has 535 campers signed up for the summer.

Some of the activities they offer include canoeing, cooking, hiking, drama and dance classes. Sweet said they also have a gardening class and are currently trying out 15 varieties of potatoes for Cornell University. The YMCA Camp Cory is located in Penn Yan along the eastern branch of Keuka Lake, offering both overnight camping as well as day camp services. Camp Director Pat Foster noted each summer more than 1,000 different campers visit the 30-acre location with some 82 staff who aid the campers in their activities.

Logano sweeps Watkins Glen weekend
Logano sweeps Watkins Glen weekend

WATKINS GLEN-Joey Logano was able to do what no driver has ever done at Watkins Glen International. Win both weekend NASCAR events, and then begin tearing up the historic road course in an excavator as part of the ceremony for the track repaving project. Logano passed Kevin Harvick just before the final turn on the last lap to secure the win. Harvick had run out of fuel, and was also overtaken by Kyle Busch, having to settle for third place. Rounding out the top five was Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch. "Yeah, it's remarkable," said Joey Logano in a post race press conference. "I've never swept the weekend before. I've come close a couple times but never actually done it. I didn't think a road course would be the time that we were able to sweep the weekend. But what a special race car I had yesterday, such a fast race car, and we were able to drive up through the field and just have a really good car. And today [Crew Chief Todd Gordon] made some great adjustments overnight after we talked about the XFINITY race and got my Shell-Pennzoil Ford even better, which was great."
