Annual Yuletide in the Country Artisan Market Cancelled Due to Storm Damage

 

As a result of the historic and unprecedented November snowstorm and significant roof damage to the Event Center on the Hamburg Fairgrounds, the 20th annual Yuletide in the Country Holiday Artisan Market originally scheduled for Dec. 6 and 7 has been cancelled.

“We attempted to find another venue to hold the event and explored using a patchwork of buildings that weren’t damaged on the Fairgrounds,” said Daniel Kaczynski of Premier Promotions, organizers of the event. “However, we were unsuccessful at both attempts and, unfortunately, were left with no other options.” 

Salamanca mourns gutsy K-9 dog


SALAMANCA, NY - A special memorial service was held in Salamanca Saturday for a local police K-9 known for faithfully serving his community.

Robin, a golden retriever, died earlier this month at the age of 12.

The cause of death is still unknown but the dog had recently overcome a battle with cancer. That's when he really captured the heart of the community.

He worked for both the Cattauragus County Sheriff's Office and the Salamanca Police Department.

The memorial for Robin was held at the Salamanca Fire Department. Those who attended shared stories and celebrated the life he had. When Robin wasn't helping out the police force he attended community events, made appearances at schools and libraries, and performed therapy work.

Robin was also a show dog and performed around the country.

Marking an important milestone in a Buffalo Billion project targeting Western New York’s emerging film and television post-production industry, a newly completed nearly $2 million state-of-the-art visual effects facility will be officially unveiled by Daemen College at a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for Dec. 5.

The celebration will take place at 10 a.m. in the Daemen International Center for Excellence in Animation located in the Tri Main Center at 2495 Main St. in Buffalo. Daemen President Gary A.

A Small Uprising in Farnham


FARNHAM, NY - Erie County is taking over plowing duties in the Village of Farnham, at least for now.

County Executive Mark Poloncarz sent out a few tweets Sunday morning saying that Farnham's mayor fired her public works chief Saturday night. That prompted plow drivers to -- literally -- walk off the job, leaving their plow trucks running.

Poloncarz addressed the issue at Sunday's press conference, calling the walk-off "the equivalent of a wildcat strike, which is of course illegal."

The county is now plowing Farnham until replacement workers can be found for the village. Poloncarz called Saturday's dust-up "the kind of thing that happens when nerves get frayed and people have been working countless hours."

Children’s Photographs Exhibited From Daemen-Community Project

Children’s Photographs Exhibited From Daemen-Community Project

Buffalo area elementary students displayed photographs that show their creative views of the community and environment at a Nov. 11 exhibit that culminated a collaborative project with Daemen College.

Images from the Seneca Babcock Children’s Photo Show were available for purchase with proceeds benefiting the Seneca Babcock After School Program.

During the five-week project, Daemen art education students worked with a dozen children in the after school program and instructed them on the basics of camera use. The young participants were then introduced to works by Jay Masiel, an acclaimed photographer best known for his unique perspective on capturing the environment and everyday life.

Coggins found guilty of two counts of murder


Mayville, NY - The man accused of murdering a well-liked Southern Tier couple learned his fate Thursday afternoon. A jury found Davide Coggins guilty of two counts of second-degree murder after less than five hours of deliberation in the April 2013 slayings of Gordon and Joyce Skinner in their Carroll Township home.

Coggins is a cousin of the man he is accused of killing.

The murder trial for Coggins, 35, of Elmira included more than 300 pieces of evidence and dozens of witnesses. Chautauqua County District Attorney David Foley closed his case saying, "David Coggins planned and executed it and he solicited the help of three individuals."
