Front page: New city building/planning fees, gas prices could hit $4 per gallon by mid-year

Good morning!

WAMC is reporting an increased danger of roof collapses after yesterday's storm. Later this morning (around 10:35 a.m.) they will welcome veteran Saratogian reporter Paul Post for an interview (by phone I'm guessing, since he filed a story from Uganda yesterday!).

In the hump-day headlines; the Saratoga Springs City Council approved a new fee schedule for the building and planning/economic development departments last night. [Srtgn]

Fuel prices could reach $4 per gallon by summer. [Record]

Sen. Kristen Gillibrand should be pushing to get the rare earth mines located in New York reopened rather than talking with China to keep their production up.

The largest problem with China is they are manipulating their curreny to favor their exports. I don't feel a State Dinner is going to solve the problem. Time to play hard ball if anyoen in the Federl Government has the guts to do it. How worse off can we be.
