Democrats misleading in reporting money, Republican says

Democrats were misleading in reporting how much money they have spent on the election for Onondaga County’s chief accountant and auditor, a republican official said Wednesday.

“They intentionally didn’t spend money until after the last public disclosure form,” said Deputy Comptroller Tom Squires, a republican.

Every candidate who runs in an election must inform the public how much money is being spent on his campaign 15 days before an election, said Robert Antonacci, a democrat who is challenging current comptroller Donald Colon. They are also required to report a dollar figure after the election.

Onondaga decides future of recycling

An Onondaga County recycling agency will make a recommendation to the county legislature in the next few weeks concerning the future of recycling, a county official said Thursday.

The Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency, also known as OCRRA, heard testimony from more than 10 agencies concerning separating recyclable materials, in a meeting conducted Wednesday, said OCRRA spokesman Andy Brigham.

The testimony centered around two-stream recycling – the separation of papers from other recyclable materials – as opposed to single-stream recycling – which mixes paper in with everything else, according to a release from Citizens Campaign for the Environment.

Gachelin’s got it in the blood

Syracuse defensive lineman Louis Gachelin’s lives, breathes, sleeps, dreams, eats and digests sports.

It’s been like that ever since he was born – perhaps even before.

His father, Frank Gachelin played football for Army. His uncle, Francis Gachelin, played football for Miami. His mother, Maggie Gachelin played soccer in high school.

“My family is a very competitive family,” Gachelin said. “Everyone’s always trying to outdo each other.”

That was certainly be the case last week when Gachelin’s brother, Elvis Dumervil and the Louisville Cardinals rolled into town.
