Front page: 200K needs bonding for new city garage fuel pumps, and Obama delivers the Salmon of the Union?

Good morning!

Our union may be strong, but most folks fixated on running out and getting some smoked salmon after the State of the Union last night. [NPR]

More on the SotU in a moment; in Saratoga, DPW Commissioner Anthony "Skip" Scirocco says the council must bond $220,000 this year to replace gas pumps at the DPW garage in compliance with a NYS DEC consent order. [Srtgn]

NYRA and the state Senate Racing Committee consider the opening of NYRA branded tele-theaters in NYC. [Srtgn]

On the Senate floor in Albany; the pols are up to their old tricks again as Democrats decry a rules change approved by Republicans blocking Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy from being the tie-breaking vote. [DN]

Democrats also cried foul after the GOP appointed the four-member Independent Democratic Conference to chair committees, one of which hasn't been an active committee in four years. [TU/CapCon]

Back to the State of the Union; New York pols echoed the President's message of teamwork. [Record, NYT]

The "enhanced" (or powerpointed) video cast of the speech really brought home the need for consolidated salmon. [VH1]

Check out the "enhanced" State of the Union broadcast here.

Just curious, why is the deputy mayor allowed to park in an all day on street spot on Lake Ave. directly in front of the drop off point to the Hampton Inn.

This is the same person who has a designated spot in the City parking lot and who would chastise any other City employee for taking an on street spot intended to serve the public and the business community. No wonder it's so difficult to find on street spots.

The mayor should direct Sutton to park in the designated spot. It stands vacant all day, most days.

For those who chose to follow the Deputy Mayor around and have nothing better to do did it ever occur to you that someone else in the family is using that car now?? Don't you have anything better to do with your time but follow her around. I understand there is a private detective agency looking for a PT retiree???
