Sharon Carpinello, New York's mental health commissioner, said Wednesday the state will add six beds at Hutchings and expand outpatient mental health services here for children and teenagers. Just last month, Carpinello told local elected officials in a letter the area didn't need more beds. She reversed her position in the wake of intense lobbying by local and state elected officials, hospital administrators, doctors and parents.

With the six additional beds, Hutchings now has 30 beds for children and teens. Carpinello said the state has been un- fairly portrayed as being unresponsive to the issue. "I'm a very caring Carpinello said. "One of my top agendas is children and adolescents."

State fines SU over basketball tickets University to pay over four tickets given to a state senator. By Erik Kriss Albany bureau Syracuse Mayor Matt Dris- coll, a top aide to Gov.

Lumpkin The Associated Press Washington The Penta- gon has ordered additional troops to Iraq to provide security in advance of two upcoming votes, the military announced Wednesday.
