Infected St. Lawrence Co. Horse is Latest Incident of Disease That Claimed Child
State Senator Patty Ritchie is again calling on state officials for answers after a St. Lawrence County horse reportedly died from the same mosquito-borne illness that had claimed the life of a four-year-old Oswego County girl.
State Senator Patty Ritchie recently joined community members at the Children’s Home of Jefferson County’s SoZo Teen Center, to celebrate the donation of 16 computers to the center by UnitedHealthcare.
State Senator Patty Ritchie has announced she has secured $50,000 in special funding to help the Village of Clayton offset the costs associated with a playground being rebuilt in the Village.
“Situated on the beautiful St. Lawrence River, the Village of Clayton is a community loved by both tourists and local residents,” said Senator Ritchie. “This funding not only will help the municipality manage costs associated with improving the park, it will also give residents and visitors a new and improved family-friendly way to spend their time.”
“From a new hotel to new restaurants, Clayton has seen a number of improvements recently,” said Village Mayor Norma Zimmer. “Our park has been used by children and families for generations and we are extremely grateful for the funding provided by Senator Ritchie, which will help us cover the costs of revitalizing and improving this fantastic community resource.”
