The state says deer hunters had a good season. DEC numbers show a deer harvest of almost 228,000—up 12 percent from the previous year. Of that number, almost 7,800 were taken in Livingston County—with around 10 percent of the county total coming from one town—Mt Morris. The 2018-19 statewide total is above the five year average of 220,000. DEC officials say a successful hunting season is good news not just for those who take to the woods and fields, but for keeping the deer population in check and for the amount hunters pump into the state economy. The totals include deer taken during the regula and youth seasons and during the bow and muzzle loader seasons as well.
A Child Health & Safety Fair is planned for this weekend in Dansville It runs from 11a-2p at Ellis B Hyde Elementary School Gym, Main St, There will be both indoor and Outdoor Events, including a scavenger hunt, safety on wheels contest, rollover simulator, Emergency vehicles, K-9 units, child ID kit and more.
Tax day—is just around the corner and the state says if you are waiting until the last minute, there are ways to make things a bit less stressful. Among the tax department’s suggestions—e file with direct deposit for a faster return and take advantage of some of the free tax services for qualified filers. The other advice—be alert for scams that ask you for any private tax information and if you are using a tax preparer, make sure that person has the qualifications to handle the job.

Campers in the state now have a new way to find their sites. The DEC says its new online system will allow people to book their reservations at state campgrounds as late as the day before. Officials say the change will make it easier to get out and explore the campgrounds—even if they wait until the last minute to decide on an outing. The DEC has a link to the reservation site on its web page.

It will probably be a while before the technology gets to the region, but if you want to try out the highly anticipated 5G wireless service you may soon be able to in one village near Syracuse. The village of North Syracuse is planning to be the first place upstate to offer that service—which requires an entirely new infrastructure —and phones that are barely on the market. 5G is a long way from being widespread, but officials in North Syracuse say they want to be ready when the time comes.
