The most exciting Kentucky Derby for those of us who live in Upstate New York was in 2003 when Funny Cide from Sackets Harbor “Ran for the Roses.” He was the first New York bred horse to win the Derby. After Funny Cide won the Kentucky Derby the excitement continued when he went on to win the Preakness Stakes. Excitement reached a fever pitch when Funny Cide ran in the Belmont Stakes. A win at Belmont would mean Funny Cide would earn the coveted Triple Crown.

Senator Patty Ritchie announced she is cosponsoring legislation that would stop Albany from passing the buck to counties by making the state cover the full cost of mandated salary raises for district attorneys. “Requiring counties to cover the cost of state-mandated raises for DAs is just another example of Albany forcing our counties and local taxpayers to foot the bill for unfunded mandates imposed by the state,” she said.
