PORTLAND β€” The new Cornell Lake Erie Research and Extension Laboratory on Route 20 in Portland was the center of attention Tuesday as the official ribbon cutting ceremony of the $5.4 million state funded facility took place. It attracted a room full of Cornell representatives, politicians and grape growers. NY State Sen. Cathy Young (R-Olean) and state Assemblyman Bill Parment (D-North Harmony) shared the spotlight as both were identified as being responsible for obtaining the state funding for this state of the art facility.
