Page B-1 lets towns get together to share ideas By BoNhia Lee Staff writer More than a third of all Cen- tral New York towns will send representatives to a conference that starts today in New York City in hopes the officials will get a little better at doing their municipal jobs. The event is the Association of Towns of the State of New York annual meeting and runs through Tuesday at the Manhat- tan Hilton. Some of those officials will travel by train, others will pool resources with folks from other towns and share a bus. Some will pay a night for a room in the Hilton or another midtown hotel, others will double or triple up in rooms to get more bang for their municipal buck. Those bucks come from town coffers. Most towns sending someone have budgeted thou- sands of dollars to pay the travel, lodging and meal expenses. Decision-makers in the towns say it's worth it. There are al- ways new, hot-button issues af- fecting all towns they'll learn about and a chance to share ideas JL JL Syracuse University patents I a nailbrush for the food- servke industry. i i By Nancy Buczek I Staff writer A Syracuse University associ- j ate professor has invented what j he thinks is a better nailbrush for food-service workers. And a Wisconsin-based com- pany plans to manufacture it in the Midwest. Norman Faiola, who's chair of SU's Nutrition and Hospitality Management Department, is doing what the Metropolitan De- CftOJLJL velopment Association's most recent economic development plan called for: He's working with his university to patent his idea. And the university is mak- ing the idea available for com- mercialization. SU patented Faiola's swing- away nailbrush, to facilitate hand-washing, in December 2003. It solves the age-old prob- lem of a nailbrush lying on the side of the sink in a "primordial pool of God knows Faio- la said. Instead, the brush attaches to a sink faucet, so it can be pushed into the water stream and cleaned or moved out of the way. Mark Weldon, SU's director of technology transfer and indus- trial development, said SU gives preference to Central and Up- state New York companies when commercializing a product, but in this case, the interested com- pany isn't local. San Jamar, a company that fo- cuses on food safety and wash- room products such as touchless paper towel dispensers, licensed Faiola's invention in October and plans to manufacture its ver- sion, the Kleen-Brush System, in May. A similar scenario played out Poll says voters OK with female president By Erin Duggan Albany Times Union Albany A majority of Americans said the country is ready to elect a woman as presi- dent in 2008 and even more said they would vote for one. The candidate's portrait as painted by registered vot- ers in a nationwide Hearst College poll shows that she's likely a Demo- crat, and is viewed as being at least as capable as a man on for- eign policy. She's stronger on health care and education, but somewhat weaker as commander in chief of the military. The poll listed four prominent women Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton. D-N.Y., Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. and Elizabeth Dole, R- N.C., and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and asked whether any of the four should run for president. Clinton was the clear front- runner with 53 percent of those polled, including half of the men and 26 percent of the Republi- cans, saying she should ran. The margin of error for the overall results was 2.9 percent. rUilUWliig AjCC. who first captured the national spotlight as President Bush's na- tional security adviser.
