New York maple-syrup production increases nearly 18 percent New York state’s maple-syrup production increased by almost 18 percent this year to 707,000 gallons, breaking last year’s 70-year production record of 601,000 gallons, according to a recent report from the USDA and a news release from Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office. New York maintained its standing as the second leading producer of maple syrup in the U.S., behind only Vermont, which produced 1.99 million gallons in 2016, up 41 percent from last year. Warmer-than-normal temperatures in New York and across the Northeast allowed for an extended season, which helped boost production. The season in the Northeast region averaged 35 days, 10 days longer than in 2015, according to the USDA. “I enjoyed visiting many of our maple producers during Maple Weekends this year, and am pleased to see that the early start of the season and warm weather led to fantastic results for them this year,” New York State Agriculture Commissioner Richard A. Ball said in the governor’s release. New York’s maple-syrup production made up about 17 percent of the national total. The number of maple taps in production in

the state surpassed 2.5 million taps in 2016, the highest number of taps since 1947, according to the release. Cuomo’s Taste NY program partners with many New York state maple producers to offer their products at Taste NY stores and cafés throughout the state.

New York milk production rises nearly 5 percent in May New York dairy farms produced 1.29 billion pounds of milk in May, up 4.9 percent from the year-ago period, the USDA’s New York field office reported. Production per cow averaged 2,080 pounds in May, up 90 pounds from a year prior. The number of milk cows on farms in New York state totaled

620,000 head in May, up 2,000 head from May 2015, but unchanged from April 2016, the field office reported. New York dairy farmers received $16.10 per hundredweight of milk this April, down 10 cents from March and off $1.40 from April 2015, according to the field office.

Seneca County IDA selects winning bidder for the former Seneca Army Depot ROMULUS — The Seneca County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) recently selected business owner Earl Martin as the winning bidder for the approximately 7,000 remaining acres of the former Seneca Army Depot. The IDA voted “unanimously” to select Martin at its board meeting on June 15, the Seneca County IDA said in a news release issued June 16. Martin owns Seneca Iron Works of Seneca Falls and Deer Haven Park, LLC. The IDA selected Martin’s bid for its “economic impact and environmental considerations,” Bob Aronson, executive director of the Seneca County IDA, said in the release. “This is the best chance in a long time to revitalize the Depot property,” Aronson said. “We look forward to working with Martin and helping him to create a brighter future for Seneca County.” The agreement calls for Martin to pay $900,000 for the property, according to an article on the website of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle. Martin’s proposal, detailed in the IDA release, calls for a $13 million projected investment in the expansion of his existing company, Seneca Iron Works, and other developments with a potential to create more than 200 new jobs over a 10-year period. The website for Seneca Iron Works displays a company called Seneca Dairy Systems, which specializes in “manufacturing and distributing dairy equipment.” Seneca Iron Works in 1999 purchased Seneca Dairy Systems, LLC, a firm that was originally known as Green Valley Welding, according to the website.

BY NORMAN POLTENSON npoltenson@cnybj.com SIDNEY — In the animated movie Bling, the hero Sam believes that only his bling ring can woo the girl of his dreams. Somehow, he confuses his ring with that of the arch villain Oscar, who is trying to destroy the city. Teaming up with his robot superheroes, Sam eventually comes to understand the moral of the story: What’s important is not the size of your bling, but the size of your heart. Au contraire. On May 16, the Madison Square Park Conservancy, sculptor Martin Puryear, and a throng of supporters unveiled “Big Bling” in Madison Park, located between Madison Ave. and 23rd St. in Manhattan. The sculpture is made of wood wrapped in fine, chain-link fence with a gold-leaf shackle anchored near the top of the structure. Standing 40 feet at its crest, Big Bling dominates the park like a Trojan horse. According to Puryear, the shape is part animal, part abstract sculpture, and part intellectual meditation: “[It’s] … an image of New York.” A Southern Tier business played a key role in developing the Big Bling sculpture. “This is a huge project, and the first time in the 124-year history of the company that we have collaborated on manufacturing an outdoor sculpture,” says Craig Van Cott, president of Unalam. “Jon Lash of Digital Atelier contacted us back in July [2015] to discuss creating a wooden structure 40 feet high, 10 feet wide, and 38 feet long. Our portion of the project, which included all of the wood used in the structure, would be constructed with pressure-treated laminated timbers and plywood. We began the construction in January at our Sidney plant. The sculpture was so large that we couldn’t use CNC machines; we had to build it by hand in seven sections and then assemble it.” Every employee at Unalam had a hand in the project. “Big Bling was so big that the entire team here at the plant helped in the manufacture, assembly, and preparation for shipping,” continues Van Cott, a fifth-generation family owner of the business. “During the manufacturing process, we had a number of visitors, including the sculptor and representatives from the Madison Square Park Conservancy … Big Bling also required special riggers for assembly in New York City ... We take pride in all of our work, but I think we take a little extra pride in this project. What gives me special pleasure is to know that 60,000 people a day will see the sculpture, which went on display in Madison Square Park on May 16. We are so proud of the project that 20 of us [employees] rode a bus to New York for the dedication ceremony.” On Jan. 8, 2017, Big Bling will move to Philadelphia where it will be reassembled and put on display. The Digital Atelier began as a research and development component of the Johnson Atelier, a nonprofit sculpture institution. The Atelier was established to expand the availability of 3D technology to artists to use in creating large-scale and complex sculpture. The corporation later expanded the use of technology found in industry, including the use of laser scanning, CNC milling, and coating technologies. In 2011, Digital Atelier was spun off as a private company led by Lash to continue bringing technology into the hands of artists.

The Madison Square Park Conservancy is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to protect, nurture, and enhance Madison Square Park, a 7 acre green space in the middle of Gotham’s towering buildings. The Conservancy is licensed by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation to manage the park and is responsible for raising 98 percent of the funds necessary for operations. Big Bling is part of the free, cultural programs for the park’s visitors. Funding support of Big Bling and other exhibitions was provided by the Ford Foundation, Matthew Marks Gallery, Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Henry Luce Foundation, Unalam, and others. Madison Square Park Conservancy launched its free art program in 2004 to celebrate sculpture exhibits by living artists and to bring worldclass art to the public. Big Bling is on display until Jan. 8, 2017, when the exhibit moves to Philadelphia. Martin Puryear was born in 1941 and earned a bachelor’s degree from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. and an M.F.A. from Yale University. Among many distinguished awards, he received the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Grant, and a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship. The American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters elected him to membership, and Yale University awarded him an honorary doctorate. Puryear lives and works in the Hudson Valley.

Unalam’s story

Unalam started out in 1892 as a lumberand feed-mill. Located in Unadilla, the Van Cott family incorporated the business in 1909 as the Unadilla Silo Co. and turned to building silos for area farmers. The family began experimenting with laminated wooden rafters as early as 1928 and in 1963 established a manufacturing operation in Sidney. While Unadilla Silo Co. is still the registered corporate name, the company is known today by its d/b/a — Unalam. The Sidney plant currently employs 30 people and the corporate office, located in Unadilla, employs 10 people. The two locations comprise 310,000 square feet. Unalam sources its lumber from the Carolinas to Texas working mostly with southern pine and Douglas fir. The Business Journal estimates annual sales of $7 million to $8 million. Van Cott, as president of Unalam, is joined in the business by members of the sixth generation of Van Cotts: his son, Leif, VP of operations; his daughter Zoé O. van der Meulen, VP of communications; and son-in-law Rik van der Meulen, VP of engineering. Leif graduated from Boston College in 2001 with a degree in finance and moved to New Hampshire to work for Wheelabrator Technologies. He joined Unalam in 2004. Zoé graduated from Notre Dame University in 1998 with a degree in government and history. She worked in Washington, D.C. doing historical research in support of litigation before moving to Boston to begin a marketing career. She met her husband while studying in Innsbruck and married in 2000. After six years in Boston, the couple joined Unalam in 2005. Rik grew up in the Seattle area and graduated from Notre Dame in 2000 with a degree in civil engineering, concentrating on structural and environmental design. He maintains

professional-engineering licenses in 11 states. Sue Van Cott, Craig’s wife, serves as the corporate secretary. The Van Cott sons, Alex and Ian, are 2016 graduates of Tulane University and serve on the Unalam board. In the movie Bling, the protagonist discovers that the size of your heart is more important than the size of your bling. In

the case of Big Bling, the opposite is true: The huge scale of the project grabs your attention and demands that you stop and contemplate its size and form. Puryear’s bling is designed to take the viewer away from the daily, mundane world that swirls around us and open the heart to meaningful contemplation. n

Writing the Next Chapter in Downtown Syracuse’s Story

R

ecently, more than 350 members of the community joined CenterState CEO’s partner, the Downtown Committee of Syracuse, for its 2016 annual meeting (http://www.downtownsyracuse.com/aboutus/ downtown-committeeannual-meeting). At the event, keynote speaker Patrick L. Phillips, global CEO of the Urban Land Institute, highlighted how changing demographics, public policy, and public-service delivery improvements have come together to create new Viewpoint vitality and opportunity for downtowns across the country. This is true of downtown Syracuse’s revival as well. It wasn’t long ago that the voices of the skeptics were louder than the voices of downtown’s champions. However, perceptions shifted as more developers, city and county leaders, the business community, institutional leaders, arts organizations, and the state came together to change downtown’s story. In his address, Phillips discussed how

ROBERT M. SIMPSON

similar-sized downtowns across the country are experiencing a resurgence and how they are planning for the future by being flexible and innovative. This is a mindset we must adopt as we approach other major issues facing our community. The revitalization of downtown is important to our entire regional economy. Let’s continue to build on the foundation of progress and pursue a clear and unified vision to advances this trajectory of growth.

Downtown Awards of Excellence

The Downtown Committee’s annual meeting recognized accomplishments of the last year. Three downtown champions were honored for their commitment to growth, diversity, and continued revitalization throughout downtown Syracuse: • The Urban Innovation Award, presented for a successful, trail-blazing activity in a previously underdeveloped facet of downtown Syracuse, was presented to the Wednesday Walk Series. The series promotes the healthy benefits of walking through guided tours highlighting various themes throughout downtown Syracuse, during lunchtime or early evenings. The innovative program is a collaborative effort among health-conscious community organizations.

• The Heart of Downtown Award, presented for efforts that positively impact how people feel about downtown Syracuse, was given to Mary Beth Roach, deputy commissioner of the Parks & Recreation Department of the City of Syracuse. As a true community leader, Mary Beth works tirelessly to provide a vibrant setting and high quality of life. She is instrumental behind the scenes of many of downtown’s major events, but also very visible throughout the events as well. • The Perfect Partner Award, which recognizes individuals or organizations for advocacy efforts that positively impact downtown Syracuse, was presented to the Rescue Mission’s Gary Mann and Jim Tawley, as well as In My Father’s Kitchen’s John and Leigh-Ann Timuno. Each embodies the mission of their organizations to improve people’s lives through their commitment to changing the way outreach services are delivered to those living with mental illness, substance-abuse issues, or homelessness.  Robert M. (Rob) Simpson is president and CEO of CenterState CEO, the primary economic-development organization for Central New York. This editorial is drawn and edited from the “CEO Focus” email newsletter that the organization sent to members on June 24.

William (Bill) Morrison, CFO of VIP Structures, right, and Mark McAnaney, CFO of Haylor Freyer & Coon, Inc., above, receive their Financial & Business Executive Awards, both in the category of Private Company CFO. This 9th annual award, presented by the Business Journal News Network, was also supported by Platinum Sponsor, Accountemps, A Robert Half Company. Jesse Jackman, division director of Accountemps, joined BizEventz to visit these honorees’ companies to present them their awards and celebrate their being honored. Neither honoree was able to attend the awards breakfast, created and produced by BizEventz, on June 2 at SRC Arena.

Congratulations Bill and Mark!

Bonadio succession plan splits the CEO, board chairman positions

T

he Bonadio Group believes it’s “better governance” when the chairman of the board and the CEO are not the same person. Thomas (Tom) Bonadio, the firm’s founder and CEO, handled both roles “for years” because he founded the company. But as the accounting firm grows, it wants to have “better” checks and balances because the board of directors is responsible for overseeing the CEO. “If it’s the same person, you don’t have the same checks and balances,” says Bonadio. He spoke with CNYBJ on June 27. Under the succession plan, Bonadio is “handing over the CEO role in three years.” Besides the CEO succession, the firm announced that Mario Urso has already assumed the role of chairman of the Bonadio Group’s board of directors, as of May 1. The firm, which is headquartered in the Rochester suburb of Pittsford, operates Central New York offices in Syracuse, Utica, and Geneva. It describes itself as upstate New York’s “largest independent provider of accounting, consulting, and financial services.” The firm’s partners voted to have longtime employee Bruce Zicari assume the role of CEO on May 1, 2019. The Bonadio Group on May 1 of this year named Zicari a managing partner of the Rochester office. Tom Bonadio “will continue to mentor Zicari” over the next three years, the firm said in a June 24 news release.

Leadership team

Bonadio called Zicari the “perfect” person to succeed him as CEO. “He’s probably in seniority in the top five in the firm. He’s been with us for 25-plus years,” says Bonadio. “He is on the management committee and has been on the management committee, so he’s well aware of how we operate as a firm. And frankly, he

knows our partnership agreement better than anybody.” As a managing partner in the Rochester office, Zicari will work with Bonadio COO Robert Enright to oversee the administration and operation of the Bonadio Group’s headquarters. In addition, Zicari will continue to lead the firm’s small-business advisory statewide practice. As chairman, Urso will lead the Bonadio Group board of directors and set the “strategic” direction for the firm. In addition to that position, he will still co-lead the firm’s healthcare/tax-exempt practice. Urso is a “little older” than Zicari, and COO Enright is “about the same age” as Zicari as “40-somethings,” says Bonadio. “So we see that group being able to run the firm for decades into the future,” he adds.

Not retiring

Bonadio emphasizes he has no plans to retire. “I will stay on with the firm,” he says. He also has a “couple of very large clients” with which he will maintain a consulting role. Bonadio declined to name the clients. He also anticipates working with the firm’s management on future mergers and acquisitions. In addition to his continued work with the firm, Bonadio is also working to launch a venture-capital fund called Impact Capital. “We’ve raised about $11 million so far. We need to raise $15 [million] in order to go into business,” says Bonadio.

Growth plans

The Bonadio Group structured its succession plan to coincide with its current, three-year strategic plan, which ends May 1, 2019. The company wants to grow its revenue to about $135 million annually and expand to about 1,000 employees. “It’s already a very good size firm but

The leadership team at the Bonadio Group includes (from L to R): Thomas Bonadio, CEO; Bruce Zicari, Rochester office managing partner and smallbusiness advisory practice leader; Robert Enright, COO; and Mario Urso, board chair and healthcare/ tax-exempt practice leader. The succession plan has Zicari taking over the CEO role on May 1, 2019. Urso assumed the role of board chair this past May 1. Tom Bonadio has held both roles as the company founder.

we hope to be about 35 percent larger by the time this transition actually happens,” Bonadio says. The firm generated revenue of $96 million for fiscal year 2016, which ended on April 30 of this year. The Bonadio Group is “dating a multitude of firms” around New York state for possible mergers, says the firm’s founder and CEO. “First dates are general discussions, and by the fifth date, they’re getting a little more detailed as to how those discussions go,” says Bonadio. He’s not sure if the firm will complete any of those deals during 2016, but the Bonadio Group is “anticipating doing two

more mergers” during its three-year strategic plan. The firm has “definitely targeted” Central New York as one of the areas where it would like to complete another merger, but that might not necessarily mean the immediate Syracuse area. The Bonadio Group now serves more than 17,000 clients on a “local, national, and international scale,” with an employee base of more than 700 people across New York. The publication Accounting Today recently recognized the firm as the 38th largest certified public accountant (CPA) firm in the nation, with revenue of about $100 million. 

American Heart Association names 19 “Fit-Friendly Worksites” in CNY BY JOURNAL STAFF news@cnybj.com SYRACUSE — The American Heart Association (AHA) announced it is recognizing 19 Syracuse–area organizations as” Fit-Friendly Worksites” in the most recent application period. Each company promotes physical activity and health in the workplace. A total of 44 companies in the Syracuse region have achieved recognition, with 25 companies honored during the previous application period, the AHA said in a news release. The 19 latest Fit-Friendly firms include Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, which achieved Platinum-level Fit-Friendly status. The 18 companies that attained Gold-level Fit-Friendly status are: Bankers Healthcare

Group (first-time award); Brown & Brown Empire State; C&S Engineers Inc.; Carrier Corporation; CE Northeast; CPS Recruitment; Crouse Hospital; Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds Business (first-time award); Eric Mower + Associates; Food Bank of CNY (first-time award); Fust Charles Chambers LLP (firsttime award); G&C Food Distributors; The Hartford; L. & J.G. Stickley; Lifetime Benefit Solutions, Inc.; OBG; OCO, Inc.; and St. Joseph’s Health. These companies join 25 others that were honored during the previous application period: AmeriCU Credit Union; Anaren Microwave, Inc.; Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Syracuse; Cayuga Community College; CXtec; Dannible & McKee, LLP; Dermody, Burke & Brown, CPAs, LLC (Platinum); Falcone Associates;

HealtheConnections; Inficon, Inc.; Loretto; Le Moyne College; Mohawk Global Logistics; MVP Healthcare (Platinum); National Grid; NBT Bancorp; Oswego Health; POMCO (Platinum); Rapid Response Monitoring; Raymour & Flanigan; Syracuse University; TERACAI; United Parcel Service; Upstate Medical University; and Welch Allyn, Inc. (Platinum). Through the Fit-Friendly Worksite designation, the AHA says it works locally with area employers on their wellness and health programs. More than 48,000 Syracuse residents are currently working for companies who have received the AHA designation. The FitFriendly Worksites program is “a catalyst for positive change in the American workforce by helping companies make their employees’ health and wellness a top priority,” the associa-

tion contends. Fit-Friendly Worksites reach Gold and Platinum level status by implementing various activities and programs to encourage physical activity, nutrition, and culture enhancements, such as on-site walking routes, healthy food choices in cafeterias and vending machines, annual employee health-risk assessments, and online tracking tools. “The Fit-Friendly Workplace program offers a unique, easy-to-implement opportunity for corporations to increase employees’ physical activity, which will help improve their health — and their employers’ bottom line,” Franklin Fry, executive director of the American Heart Association in Syracuse, said in the release. “Even people who haven’t exercised regularly until middle age can reap significant benefits by starting a walking program.”

Student teams from CNY schools win MWBE awards in state business-plan contest BY ERIC REINHARDT ereinhardt@cnybj.com ALBANY — Teams from Mohawk Valley Community College, SUNY Oneonta, and SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly) won MWBE awards and prize money in the 7th annual New York Business Plan Competition. Women and minorities made up the majority of students on the winning teams, which secured the Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) Awards, according to a SUNY Poly news release. MWBE is a designation that refers to a business with more than half of its ownership stake belonging to women or minorities. SUNY Poly honored the MWBE award recipients June 27. The award winners had competed in the event held April 29 at SUNY Poly’s Albany NanoTech Complex. Dual:Lock, led by student Timothy Oh from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, won the competition’s $100,000 grand prize. The MWBE award winners will each share a portion of the $10,000 award that competition title sponsor SEFCU “made possible,” according to the SUNY Poly release. “I saw first-hand the strength of the plans put forth by these MWBE contestants. If our state is going to continue to succeed, we must ensure that companies built on diversity are given the funding and support needed to thrive,” Michael Castellana, president and CEO of SEFCU, said.

MWBE award winners

The MWBE award winners included Underground Greens, which is led by a student from Mohawk Valley Community College. It earned third place in the competition’s NYSERDA energy/sustainability track. Underground Greens pitched a specialty plant and produce retail operation that will grow fresh, nutritious, chemical free, nonGMO plants and produce. GMO is short for genetically modified organisms. The products will be available online for local pickup or delivery, utilizing a soilbased, indoor, subterranean, vertical growing system. The company also utilizes field and greenhouse crops, with a plan to offer bimonthly community workshops to promote growing and eating non-GMO, organic produce and plants. Another MWBE award recipient, Travelsee, is a team of students from SUNY Oneonta. It pitched a mobile phone app that helps users “find and share experiences” at places such as museums. The app user can utilize key words combined with their location, which GPS enables, to provide a social space for more

“relevant, real-time interaction.” The third MWBE award recipient, SUNY Poly’s Kid Sentry, shared a business plan for a small, wearable device that a user can place on children’s clothing. It communicates with parents’ cell phones SEE MWBE AWARDS, PAGE 11

Is Your Mind Made Up? G

unshots, sirens, and more police than March in the St. Patrick’s Day parade. In the wee hours, folks in a village I knew woke years ago to several shotgun blasts. Next, 20 police cars wailed down their streets. Villagers stumbled onto their lawns in bathrobes and confusion. They learned that a guy from a neighboring village had blown away three men. He had been drinking with them in the village tavern. Money Talk It was a no-brainer for the jury. He and the men had argued. The suspect stomped out, got into his car, and roared home. He grabbed his shotgun, roared back, found the guys in their car in the hotel parking lot, and blew their heads off. And yet, this man’s mom declared he was innocent. The victims had provoked him, she insisted. They taunted him and asked for the ultimate punishment. She comes to mind these days as people gird up to defend their favorite political candidates. As they activate their inner spin machines to defend their candidates against the indefensible. I think too of my brother and the German Shepherd he loved. The dog bit 20 people in a year. “Aw, she’s the

TOM MORGAN

sweetest dog. She wouldn’t hurt anybody. People are always taunting her. They ought to know better.” I think of the days of Nixon. His fans heard him break the law. Heard him on his own tapes, or read transcripts from the recordings. These defenders would say, “Other politicians have done a lot worse. Just because he said those things doesn’t mean …” I think of the days of Bill Clinton. He flat out lied to a grand jury. His defenders read the transcript and declared “Well, he didn’t really lie. He was just trying to say …” And so we do when we learn something bad about our candidate. We leap into defense mode. Our guy or gal can do no wrong. It is just the nature of things or people. Once we commit to a candidate we can see no wrong in him or her. Just like the shotgun killer’s mom saw a halo hovering above her boy. This is all filed in the vault of human behavior, under the title, “Don’t confuse me with facts. My mind is made up.” Eighty years ago, Dale Carnegie dramatized this phenomenon — in his famous book: “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” Al Capone, he wrote, was the most sinister gang leader who ever shot up Chicago. Yet Capone thought of himself as a public benefactor. He said the public just didn’t appreciate his virtues. I’m sure his fellow gangsters felt the same about him. Hey, OJ Simpson still has an army of fans. True believers. Attilla had a fan club. A lot of

folks revered Hitler. We know there are swing voters — independents who have not yet decided for whom to vote. We also know there are true believers who will vote for Hillary or The Donald — no matter what. The FBI could find she slept with Putin, handed him secret documents. They could clap Hillary in leg irons, send her to prison in an orange pantsuit. And yet, her followers would still vote for her. As others have voted for candidates living in jails. The Donald could be found guilty of downing the World Trade Center towers and his supporters would vote for him anyway. When I was a kid, Jimmy Hoffa was in the news a lot. He ran the corrupt Teamsters Union. He had committed any number of crimes. A TV newsman challenged a trucker. “How can you support Jimmy Hoffa when you know he is a crook?” He replied that Hoffa was his kind of crook. “I make more money drivin’ my rig than I ever made before. So leave da guy alone.” So … you want to change a true believer’s mind about Clinton or Trump? Good luck with that. From Tom…as in Morgan.  Tom Morgan writes about political, financial, and other subjects from his home near Oneonta.

For those eligible, voting should be easy T

he elections process is not usually grist for inflammatory rhetoric. But this year has been different. Republican Donald Trump labeled the GOP primary process “crooked.” Democrat Bernie Sanders suggested his party’s use of super delegates made its nominating process a “rigged system.” For many voters, the intricacies of voting rules quickly became a topic Opinion of overriding interest. Now that the primaries are over, I hope Americans remain just as intrigued by the laws governing generalelection voting in their states. Because at the moment, this country is engaged in an experiment with the democratic process that should rivet everyone who cares about representative government. We’ve seen two diverging trends in the

LEE HAMILTON

states in recent years. One approach has sought to make voting more difficult, with a variety of laws requiring IDs and limiting the ways in which people can vote. The other has sought to make the process of voting simple and convenient. On the whole, Republicans at the state level have favored greater restrictiveness and Democrats greater ease, but you don’t have to be a partisan of one side or the other to recognize that politicians believe a great deal is at stake. Which is why the question of how to approach the right to vote isn’t going to be settled any time soon. There are a lot of court cases pending in the various states, and it’s likely there will be conflicting judicial opinions. If we’re going to debate the electoral process as a nation, let’s keep in mind the core issue: it should be easy to vote — and hard to cheat. Every American should be able to exercise his or her right to vote without feeling cowed — which is why I worry that efforts to limit voting will have a pernicious effect on our system of representative government.

One certainty in all this is that our entire voting system needs attention. All too many jurisdictions try to run elections on the cheap, with machinery and processes that are inadequate to the task. Even now, 16 years after the 2000 presidential election revealed deep flaws in the patchwork of ways we record and tally votes, the system remains rickety. “The vigor of American democracy rests on the vote of each citizen,” a national commission on voting once wrote. Keep that in mind this election year — and pay attention to how your state approaches its obligation to safeguard that vigor.  Lee Hamilton is a senior advisor for the Indiana University (IU) Center on Representative Government, distinguished scholar at the IU School of Global and International Studies, and professor of practice at the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Hamilton, a Democrat, was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years, representing a district in south central Indiana.

This was a contributing factor in taking advantage of an ideal bidding climate. The majority of 2015 project work at the Emory Avenue Complex includes a variety of improvements and select replacements to the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The high school’s current west entry was replaced with a more historically sensitive, welcoming, and secure version. Masonry and windows on the north façade of the school were restored and replaced. The failing terrazzo on the vintage building’s main stairs were supplanted by new precast units, as well as as many existing inefficient exterior doors that were replaced with thermally improved units. Various windows were exchanged for new units. Pavement at the bus loop and parking lots between Emory Avenue and kitchen receiving will be rehabilitated. Improvements specific to the Middle School include: replacement of the existing leaking roof; replacement of the domestic water heaters and storage tanks; new exterior soffits at both overhangs

facing south; and refinishing and restriping of the gymnasium wood floor system.
