0) O) s Q. Gathering Information or Police Computers to 00 c 3 C 3 03 0> O) (D UJ Officers of the Town of Man- hus Police Dept. are pounding the streets in an attempt to con­ tact every business, church and school, collecting information about each to put into the Onon­ daga Law Enforcement Infor­ mation System \We are trying to load the computer system with informa­ tion about each business so it can be retrieved by the officer on the street during an emergency,\ said Officer Wil­ liam Bleyle. The officers began contacting local businesses, which they es­ timate to number about 600, the first week in June and hope to be completed in two months. The regular $5 permit fee charged to join the OLEIS sys­ tem will be waived in this in­ stance. As each officer contacts a bus­ iness, he or she will assign it an OLEIS number, which must be displayed at the front entrance to the building The officer will request specific information about the business, including the location of any alarms, who maintains the alarm, hours of business, specific information about the location of the build­ ing and the names and tele­ phone numbers of three employees with keys to the building who can be reached in case of an emergency They are also interested in the location of the safe, where there' are any unusual accesses such as a skylight,-whether there are guard dogs on the premises and whether hazardous materials are stored on the property. All this information is put into the OLEIS computer where it can easily be retrieved and sent by the dispatcher to officers on the beat and to other agencies, such as the sheriffs department and fire control. The informa­ tion will remain confidential and only available through the OLEIS computer. \Officers are finding open doors on the midnight shifts, but cannot contact the owners,\ Of­ ficer Bleyle said. Possible break-ins thus cannot be inves­ tigated, because police are not allowed to enter buildings with­ out an owner present except in emergencies. \It is for their be­ nefit,\ he said. The officer said any business, school, church or similar organi­ zation not contacted within the next few months should get in touch with the police to join the OLEIS system. Officers are also supplying owners with crime prevention information and will, at a later time, conduct a business crime survey to determine where a business might be vulnerable Robert K.

Legislation to Shift the blame to those vendors who \knowingly\ cause or \knowingly\ contribute to the intoxication of any person that results in the injury or death of another has been proposed by Assemblyman Hy Miller. \My legislation would ease the burden on lawful, responsible vendors of legal alcoholic beverages by making existing law respond to the true intent and purpose of the original act,\ he said. Currently, if a seller of alcoholic beverages unknowingly contributes to the intoxication of a person, he or she is responsible for actual and exemplary damages caused by that person. \There have been numerous instances where a person goes out to dinner, has an alcoholic beverage, then later in the evening becomes intoxicated elsewhere, and is involved in an accident. The vendor in this instance had no way of knowing that the person would become intoxicated after he left the establishment,\ Mr. Miller said. \My legislation, if enacted, will not only properly place responsibility on an irresponsible vendor who knowingly serves an intoxicated person, but it will also encourage insurance companies to view dram shop liability insurance more favorably by removing the unnecessary and unfair burden of responsibility from vendors who do not know that the person is intoxicated, or that the person will become intoxicated later,\ the legislator said. Home Equity Program For Elderly Approved A program that would let a limited number of elderly homeowners stay in their homes and receive monthly cash pay­ ments from the equity in their homes has been approved for a demonstration program by the House of Representatives. The legislative initiative was offered by Congressman George C. Wortley, who called the ap­ proval \a breakthrough in the long effort to help people who are 65 or older and are house-rich but cash-poor.\ Congressman s Wortley's amendment was added to a pac­ kage of 1986 housing legislation that the House*ls still consider­ ing. The amendment would es­ tablish a two-year home equity demonstration program for 1,000 elderly homeowners who would stay in their homes and receive additional monthly in­ come. The program, to be conducted by the federal Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and backed by Farmers Home Ad­ ministration insurance, would provide a maximum of $67,500 of home equity in monthly cash payments to homeowners par­ ticipating in the program. Congressman Wortley said his legislation is \designed to profect^both borrower and len­ der*-' and includes counseling: for program participants. \Some homeowners, would be better off converting their equity into cash. Others would not. That is why counseling by a third party is so important,\ he said. -STOCK SALE!
