TOMPKINS COUNTY PREPARES TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS: "Last summer the Tompkins County Legislature committed to a 20% reduction in greenhouse gases produced by the government's buildings & vehicles. A 2001 study reported that 1.2 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions are attributable to the entire Tompkins County community. County government's portion is estimated at 6,849 tons, or 0.5 percent of the total.
---"Taitum Engineering (accepts HOURS) suggested a variety of improvements in lighting, ventilation, & temperature controls at little or no cost. More energy can be saved by operating heating or cooling systems only during hours of business. Sealing air leaks & adding insulation to various buildings will also help conserve energy. The only big-ticket item the Taitum Engineering report recommends is a $428,000 project to install more energy-efficient lighting. This investment would reach payback in 5 years.
---"About 10 percent of the County's greenhouse gases come from its vehicle fleet. The emissions reduction plan recommends keeping the fleet up-to-date & well-maintained, reducing use, & purchasing fuel efficient or clean energy vehicles in the future." --Heather Filiberto 274-5560

ITHACAN MAURA STEPHENS REPORTS FROM BAGHDAD: "Everything here is such a paradox. One person will tell us passionately that he is so happy that Saddam is gone; the next will say that things were better under Saddam. Some people profess to love the Americans; others swear revenge on Americans. It is hard to find truth -- or more accurately, it is hard to sort through such a variety of truths.
---"Please also start collecting vitamins & medicines, as well as textbooks, encyclopedias, & dictionaries -- everything is needed desperately here. It looks like we will be able to make some shipments back here soon. We have given out all the items we brought, & every day we are meeting more people in desperate need. The vitamins especially are needed. We visited the University of Mosul yesterday. Not a thing remains. All the computers, books, even the ceiling light fixtures were looted. There are only ancient wooden desks & chalkboards remaining. What a tragedy! The language labs in the language & translations departments were completely gutted. There isn't an audio tape in the place. We would like especially to help resupply these labs-- so old French or English language textbooks, audiotapes or CDs of language lessons are valuable. We are well & trying to stay away from the guys with the guns. And trying to stay cool." --Maura Stephens & George Sapio

All of these Ithacans had been involved in the pro-democracy movement that was forced underground & into the jungle in Burma after a murderous assault on 8/8/88, soon after Aung San Suu Kyi was elected president of the country by a strong majority. She was never allowed to take office by the junta of reactionary generals which still governs."

YOUR LETTERS

"Thanks a great deal for publishing the second permaculture network potluck. We had a great turnout, about 50 people, from so many different backgrounds." -- Michael Burns
--------

"Last time I was at Wegmans in the rain, I noticed that the parking lot slopes right into the inlet without even a curb to stop the runoff. The runoff carries oil & other leaked car fluids directly into the Inlet. Even the Widewaters project has a 'berm' to stop such runoff, & Wegmans should too. Let them know you want them to solve this problem!" --Evan
--------

"Thanks Glen, for voicing a concern about censorship [at Hollywood Video] (June #2); I strongly agree. Seeing only part of a film, & not knowing what I am missing, is very frustrating. It is also insulting to the artists who made the film. I didn't realize Hollywood Video had censored a film I had rented until I got home, too late to reject it. As long as films are properly rated or described, I reject censorship of any kind.
---"Motivated by your complaint, I am going to write to their management (Hollywood Entertainment Corporation, 9275 SW Peyton Lane, Wilsonville, OR 97070) & complain. Other contact info for the mega-business is 503-570-1600, Fax: 503-570-1680 info@hollywoodvideo.com; Guest Relations (what ever that is) us@hollywoodvideo.com 1-877-325-8687.
---"In the meantime, there is Collegetown Video on Dryden Rd., &, while I much prefer to shop locally, increasing number of mail order rental businesses for DVDs. So there are some alternatives & we do have leverage with Hollywood." --Todd M.
--------

"Still lovin' the ICN. Great work! Just a quick response to the message about boycotting Hollywood Video. I totally agree with the sentiment and personally have done all I can to never set foot in that store. When in need of videos, I either drive up to East Hill to visit Video Ithaca, walk up to Collegetown to visit Collegetown Video (which happens to have the best selection of DVDs in town BTW) or simply visit the library on a Wednesday when the selection is still good. It certainly takes some forethought to avoid Hollywood when a last minute urge for a movie strikes but I think it's worth the satisfaction of not supporting them. Now that I know about their ridiculous censorship policies, I'm even more determined not to ever go there. I would completely support a full fledged boycott! Where do we begin??" --Natasha
--------

"I liked your piece about a trolley system in Ithaca. I found it to be quite a good read. I was skeptical, & maybe still am skeptical, that it could become a reality here. But after spending a week in San Francisco, without a rental car, my girlfriend & I both really came to appreciate not having to drive. The time spent traveling was longer than if we had brought a car, but it was well worth it.
---"Upon returning home, we both dreaded the return to our inadequate bus system, & our nearly exclusive car usage. Ithaca isn't quite bicycle-friendly yet, & much of it will never be due to the hills, so biking is more of a novelty than a true transportation method for us.
---"Do you have any upcoming plans for the promotion of alternatives to cars in Ithaca?
---"I'd really like to see something better in place, starting with more bike routes, more bus routes, electric buses, & perhaps even a trolley. It is certainly a noble goal." --Chris Yokum
---[REPLY] Installation of bike lanes will first require replacement of certain City Hall department heads. The Ithaca Downtown Partnership seeks funding for a study of trolley feasibility. Deliberately making Ithaca less convenient for cars, while making alternatives safer & easier, will cause change.
--------

"Wondering if you would add this link www.letterboxing.org to promote letterboxing in the next issue? It's a great pastime for all ages that gets you outside enjoying our beautiful area. All you need are the clues & a stamp. There are a number of letterboxes hidden throughout the Finger Lakes but we could use more ramblers out there leading us to other out of the way spots!" --Amy Rand
--------

"Please, please, please sign me up to receive the Ithaca Community News! I was a student here in the early 90s, & have returned for good very gratefully. I'm so excited to be a part of this community again. I wouldn't live anywhere else." --Kerry A. Barnes
--------

[Dan Cogan replies to Mark re: cable franchise] "Actually, Time Warner does not have a monopoly. Any other cable provider is free to come to Tompkins County, apply for a cable franchise, & if so awarded, string or bury cable in order to provide alternative cable service to residents of the County. Of course, we both know that the barriers to entering the market are so great, that it is unlikely another company would try to do that; maybe in NYC, but not in Ithaca, NY. I did want to correct your assertion, however, that in granting Time Warner a cable franchise, Common Council granted them a monopoly.
---"The issues you raised, & many that you did not, came up in our deliberations. It was because Time Warner seemed so unwilling to give more than they were offering that I voted along with 4 other Common Council members not to approve the franchise application that had been negotiated w/ Time Warner. The mayor broke the tie in favor of approval.
---"It is interesting to note that the representatives from the Public Service Commission who were in town for our deliberations opined that the franchise agreement the city had negotiated was one of the best they have seen in recent years. This is because changes in federal laws have severely restricted what communities may require from cable providers. We CANNOT require specific programming. We CANNOT require that they provide cable access studio free of charge. We did negotiate an Institutional Network, which by most accounts is quite an accomplishment.
---"It makes sense that people would be angry at the local government for poor service by a local cable provider. But it is important to look at it in the context of telecommunications law in 2003." --Dan Cogan
--------

"About six years ago I was in an Australian pub in Bradenton, Florida late in the evening having overpriced beer when I encountered a friend with a 6-week-old puppy, a sickly runt of a purebred litter who he was unable to sell. He explained that the dog, an American pitbull, was going to be put down the next day when surrendered to the SPCA.
---"The next morning my hangover brought to me the realization that I had too much beer...and the puppy whining on the floor brought me to the realization that I had had WAY too much beer.
---"That is how I ended up with my best friend, Platter. Sadly, I am forced to part with my companion of six years at this time & am desperately seeking a new & great home for my buddy. She is a purebred American pitbull-- about 70 pounds-- who needs a home where she will be a single pet. Her tail & ears are natural & have not been clipped (she resembles a boxer more than a pitbull). She is an extremely personable & lovable pet who adores people.
---"She is current on all shots & healthy. I am willing to pay all future medical costs for the dog as well as for food & supplies. A kennel, toys & food would accompany her to her new home as well.
---"Please call 277-3868 or platterrocks@hotmail.com --Deidra Cross
---[REPLY] Such requests, including pictures, can be placed at ithacanews.org/classifieds.html --------

"Just have to wax enthusiastic about Turback's being back again. We went there for dinner the other night, & the food was fantastic, the prices reasonable, & the service excellent. It has the same wonderful atmosphere you remember, & best of all, its ongoing dedication to featuring ingredients grown and/or produced in New York state. If you haven't been yet, go spend a beautiful summer evening there soon." --Karen Chimento
--------

"I just read the latest "COMMUNITY NEWS" & wanted to thank you. You are one of the people I most admire in Ithaca for all you do for us both practically & in raising & keeping our consciousness focused 'rightly.' I am feeling much gratitude about having you in my town. With tremendous appreciation," --Eddie Lisbe
--------

"[Re: Green Party presidential candidate?] Are you nuts? Yeah, sure. Go ahead & do this [run a Green presidential campaign]. Then we'll ALL end up living in Dallas!" --Larry Stinely
---[REPLY] According to election 2000 exit polls, Gore would have lost the popular vote without Nader in the race. So also says Al From, the president of Clinton/Gore's Democratic Leadership Council: "The assertion that Nader's marginal vote hurt Gore is not borne out by polling data. When exit pollers asked voters how they would have voted in a two-way race, Bush actually won by a point." Gore was spoiled by his own indifferent campaign. The Green Party online primary takes place until 7/22: www.iswitched.org You can vote for Kucinich, but he's going to bail out to run for Senate.
--------

"Hey, thanks for the continued news. Does Ithaca need a bicycle factory? I t might create a few jobs & produce a necessary product. Perhaps we could sell them in China as well. Good luck on your presidential bid. " --Paul Holloway
---[REPLY] Yes, we have the capacity to build cargo bikes here to carry groceries & kids.
--------

"Thanks so much for continuing to run Ithaca Community News! It's definitely the best Ithaca resource online." --Ben Regenspan
