Ski club hosts 'aerial assault'


COLDEN, NY - Some people really embrace the winter weather and all that snow as it propels them to new heights. Like the kids ages nine to 17 taking part in the 2015 Buffalo Aerial Assault. It's a freestyle skiing competition organized by the Buffalo Ski Club in Colden.

This is the 18th year for this event. As the kids can really get air, they also strive to gain points and perhaps go on to much higher levels of competition.

There were 42 competitors on Sunday, with some coming from as far away as Tennesee and Lake Placid to take part.


Police break up meth lab in Dunkirk motel


DUNKIRK, NY – Acting on a tip, police arrested a 27-year-old man who was operating a meth lab in a Dunkirk motel room Friday night.

While checking the status of parolees at Don's Motel on Lake Shore Drive West around 8:15 p.m., police were looking into a report of suspected criminal activity in some of the rooms at the motel. They learned that a Joshua J. Hammer, who was wanted in connection with a domestic violence incident earlier in the evening, had barricaded himself into room #38 at the hotel, which was supposed to be vacant, and he was suspected of having a gun.

Police talked him into leaving the room through a back door, but he hastily locked the door as he exited. After getting the consent of management, police searched the room and discovered a fully operational methamphetamine lab and a loaded handgun.
