The front page of the Binghamton, NY Press & Sun-Bulletin. Of interest is the small amount of space given--even though it's a Saturday edition that no one reads--to the extremely important news that 70,000 residents of New York State have sued their own governor to force him to do his job and move forward with releasing new fracking regulations (which have been on hold nearly 6 years!). The big news of the day for the PSB? A silly open house at Binghamton University. Which simply shows the continuing liberal bias at this Gannett newspaper.

PRESS & SUN-BULLETIN SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2014 Colleges see more early applications Cuomo sued over fracking delay Landowners group wants to force decision By Jon Campbell ALBANY — A coalition representing thousands of upstate landowners sued Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday in an attempt to force a decision on hydraulic fracturing for natural gas. The lawsuit, from the Binghamtonbased Joint Landowners Coalition of New York, accuses Cuomo of intentionally obstructing the state’s 51⁄2-year review of hydrofracking for political purposes, and challenges the legality of referring the review to New York’s health commissioner in 2012. The group is asking a judge to force the state Department of Environmental Conservation to complete the voluminous document that will guide whether New York will allow gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale, which stretches across the Southern Tier. “It is apparent to the world that Governor Cuomo is dragging out the (environmental review) process for his political purposes instead of focusing on Vestal resident Vinny LoRusso, center, tour guide scheduling coordinator for admissions at Binghamton University, preps some of the guides for this weekend’s open house on campus. KRISTOPHER RADDER / STAFF PHOTO BU holding open house this weekend for first time in February See FRACKING, Page 6A 8,238 By Meghin Delaney K eeping up with a nationwide trend of high school students sending in college applications earlier, Binghamton University is holding an early open house this weekend for accepted students. In January, the university sent out its first wave of acceptance letters to approximately 3,700 of the 9,300 students who applied early. Instead of having them wait until March or April to visit campus — which officials said is a big factor in the decisionmaking process — they’re planning an open house Sunday to accommodate the early birds. University officials are expecting 1,700 guests. This is the first time the university’s held an open house in February, which stemmed from a need to try something different, said Randall Edouard, assistant provost and director of admissions at BU. “We know once they’re here, they understand who we are,” said Joe Tiesi, senior assistant director for undergraduate admissions. Number of students who applied early to Binghamton University for fall 2011. Deputies to carry meds for heroin overdose 9,300 Number of students who applied early to BU for fall 2014. 92 percent The university’s retention rate for the freshman class. That means 92 percent of students who enroll their freshman year choose to stay at BU for their next year. By Anthony Borrelli 30 percent Surrounded by a variety of professional offices, shops, bars and eateries, the .13-acre parcel falls within a zoning district that permits a broad range of similar commercial development. It had an assessed value of $76,800 in 2013, according to Broome County As heroin use surges nationwide, Broome County law enforcement will be carrying a new tool to guard against the drug’s potentially fatal side effects. Naxalone, also called “Narcan,” is a nasal spray that provides relief from heroin overdose symptoms. By next month, the drug will be included in the duty gear of 55 officers within the Broome County Sheriff’s Office who may respond to calls involving suspected overdoses of the highly addictive opioid. Heroin has become pervasive in this community and overdose cases have doubled since 2012, Sheriff David Harder said during a news conference Friday to announce the initiative, which is in partnership with the See PROPERTY, Page 8A See HEROIN, Page 6A The percentage of incoming students at BU who are transfers.
