“FISHCAP” EFFORTS SELL COUNTY LEGISLATORS ON CHAMBER—The St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce got a 10-percent funding cut, to 180-thousand-dollars for 2013. The County Legislature heard over an hour of comments this week from outside agencies, all stood to lose all their County allotments. Efforts to bring “BASSMASTERS” to Waddington next summer and a potential partnership with sporting goods giant Cabela's were pushed. The only other outside agencies that got most of their funding kept were the Historian and Soil and Water Conservation; they also got 10 percent cuts. All others got their 2013 funding eliminated—that includes a controversial elimination of library funds.
