Attic insulation available
The village has extended eligibility for a free attic insulation program to people whose income is up to 150 percent of Essex County’s median income.
The village board originally set eligibility at 60 percent of the median income, then raised it to 80 percent in April; however, there still have been very few applicants.
The level is now at about $84,000 for two people, or $123,000 for a family of four.
The program is funded by the Independent Energy Efficiency Program and available to Lake Placid Municipal Electric customers. Application forms are available in the North Elba Town Hall.

Managing food allergies
Most of us eat without a thought that something so important to life might also harm us. But if you’re allergic to one or more foods, every mouthful can be a worry. Some allergic reactions to food can be mild, but others may be severe or even life-threatening.
If you have food allergies, knowing more about the condition can make it easier to discuss your diagnosis and care with your doctor. A new online booklet is now available on the New in Health (NIH) website to help. This simple and informative 32-page publication can help patients, families and caregivers understand how to manage their food allergies.
