Town officials, humane society clash over services

SCHUYLER COUNTY--Dog control services in Schuyler County took center stage last week in a story of communication differences and administrative issues. In late June, the towns of Catherine, Dix, Hector, Montour, Reading and Tyrone indicated their decision to contract with a private entity to provide dog control services instead of partnering with the county to do so. Two towns, Orange and Cayuta, indicated a desire to continue the long-standing relationships in place. New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets mandates that dog control services be provided. Since 2009, towns in Schuyler County have contracted with the Humane Society of Schuyler County to provide shelter, care and adoption services for stray, abandoned, seized and surrendered dogs in Schuyler County.

It's more than just wine on the trails

FINGER LAKES--The 85 or so wineries clustered around the largest three Finger Lakes, plus breweries, cideries and distilleries tend to take a collegial, "We're-all-in-this-together" attitude. Certainly having a large number and variety of purveyors of artisanal alcoholic beverages is a marvelous driver for tourism, bringing ever greater numbers of visitors to the area. But because the impossibility of visiting every winery around the larger lakes is clear to even the most dedicated tasters, most wineries have upped their game in a quest for a competitive edge.
