Batavia didn't win the steak knives.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo told a crowd gathered at City Centre for the announcement of who won the Finger Lakes region competition for the state's Downtown Revitalization Initiative contest that there would be more than one winner this year, and getting second or third place isn't so bad.

"Now everyone likes to win first place," Cuomo said. "I understand it, you know, first is first. But second place, $8 million is a lot of money. And if it wasn't for the fact that we had offered a $10 million first place, people would have been very, very happy with $8 million because it's a big win. $6 million is a big win. We have a fourth-place winner, which gets a set of steak knives. That's not so great. But second place, $8 million is great, really great."

Batavia didn't get the $8 million, either. Nor the $6 million. Batavia received the grand prize, $10 million.

And when Cuomo announced that, more than 100 community members gathered for the announcement burst into a standing ovation.

Empire State Development Director Howard Zemsky said the award was well deserved.

"You did a great job on your plan," Zemsky told the crowd. "You understand downtown revitalization. You understand all of the components that have worked down through the years from historic preservation, the workforce initiative, the innovation initiative. You know exactly where your future lies."

The next step in the process is for the state to form a steering committee that will decide how to allocate the funds. City Manager Jason Molino said based on what he's seen taking place in other regions, the committee will include local people with a diverse set of backgrounds and interests.

"You're going to see folks that touch on all elements, whether it's arts and culture, whether it's business, whether there is small business or larger business," Molino said. "I think the state will, as they have in all the other regions, get a good cross-section of good decision makers that can really process and can take some of the planning and move forward."

Julie Pacatte, economic development coordinator for Batavia Development Corp., said the goal is to make Downtown Batavia a more livable and vibrant community for residents and business owners.

"The way we believe it should be spent is arts, culture, entertainment and make it a truly livable downtown," Pacatte said. "So, housing, entertainment dining, arts, walkability, all of those things we've talked about for a number of years. They should be able to bring it all together in Downtown."

BDC President Pier Cipollone said the award will also help the agency fulfill its agenda to help small businesses.

"We need to make downtown a destination," Cipollone said. "I'm a big proponent of clustering. We need to get shops, we need to get restaurants, we need to get bars, we need...These things will cause people to come downtown and then walk around and create the foot traffic that all the businesses need."

Molino said the award is a confirmation the city has been on the right track the past few years in trying to turn around the local economic climate.

"The past decade has been an interesting roller coaster for this community," Molino said. "Perseverance comes to mind as to what they've been able to endure and to grow by ... new leaps and bounds. It's a relief to see everyone's hard work come together. We're excited about what this means -- what's the next chapter of the community? What's the next chapter for the city and in our lives?"

In his speech, Cuomo told the story of how his administration has embraced economic development in the state and attempted to turn around decades of economic neglect, from bringing Robert Duffy into the administration to appointing Zemsky as head of ESD.

"For a lot of decades we just ignored it," Cuomo said. "We denied it. Or we didn't care enough about it. And so we said we are actually going to come in and do something about it and turn it around."

But in a way, Cuomo said, Batavia was already ahead of the curve.

"Actually, the first turnaround and recognition was in many ways done in Batavia," Cuomo said. "Johnston Harvester moved out, and that was the big employer back in the '50s. Part of the manufacturing phase-out, right? Buffalo loses steel. And Rochester loses Kodak. And Batavia loses Johnston Harvester. And in the old building, you started a business incubator.

"I don't know if it was called a business incubator there, but the thought was 'We have to change economies. We're no longer manufacturing. We lost this big employer. We have to get to the economy of tomorrow. And it's going to start by bringing in small businesses and feeding them and growing them and helping them incubating them into bigger businesses -- literally in the same building.' That was ahead of its time by 50 years."

The recognition is great for Batavia, Pacatte said.

"I think what we've been doing has been working and it caught the attention of the state government and their ideas seem to be in alignment with where we're at," she said. "It just caught fire. Another ten million dollars really just propels us forward."

Tyshawn K. King (AKA "Bullet," AKA "Jodeci" or "Jodecee") is indicted for the crime of second-degree attempted murder, a Class B violent felony. It is alleged that on Sept. 20 in the area of Thorpe Street, near Maple Street, in the City of Batavia, that King -- with intent to commit second-degree murder, specifically with intent to cause the death of another person -- engaged in conduct "which tended to effect the commission of such crime" by shooting the intended murder victim with a gun.

It is alleged that on March 31 in the Town of Byron that Russell knowingly and unlawfully possessed a controlled substance -- lysergic acid diethylamide -- more commonly known as the hallucinogen LSD, with intent to sell it. In count two, the defendant is accused of the same crime on the same day for allegedly knowingly and unlawfully possessing another controlled substance with intent to sell it, psilocybin mushrooms (sometimes called 'shrooms, or "magic mushrooms"), also a hallucinogen. In count three, he is accused of the same crime as in count two, but on a different day, April 7. In counts four and five, the defendant is indicted for the crime of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, a Class A misdemeanor, for allegedly possessing "a firearm, electonic dart gun, electronic stun gun, gravity knife, pilum ballistic knife (which has a detachable blade that can be ejected to a distance of several yards by pressing a trigger or operating a lever or switch), metal knuckle knife, cane sword, billy, blackjack, bludgeon, metal knuckles, chukka stick, sand bag, sand club, wrist-brace type sling or slingshot, shirken or "kung fu star," to wit, respectively: a gravity knife and a switchblade knife.

It is alleged that on July 21 in the City of Batavia that Wilmet intended to cause physical injury to another person and did so.

In Special Information, the District Attorney accuses the defendant of having been convicted of driving while ability impaired by alcohol on April 19, 2012 in the Town of Salina Court, County of Onondaga, and that conviction forms the basis for the suspension or revocation referred to in count one of the indictment. Furthermore, the DA accuses Delosh of knowing, or having reason to know, that the prior conviction existed and that his driving privilege was therefore suspended or revoked because of that prior conviction.

John P. Daley is accused of the crime of driving while intoxicated, as a Class E felony. It is alleged in the indictment that on May 21 in the Town of Alabama, Daley drove a 1998 Honda on Route 77 while in an intoxicated condition.

The DA accuses Daley of being so convicted on June 19, 2008 in Erie County Court, and the conviction was within 10 years of the crimes alleged in this indictment.

Jeremy Armstrong

A 27-year-old Batavia man who shot and tried to kill another local resident got the prison term he bargained for when Judge Charles Zambito sent him to state prison for 15 years today.

Jeremy R. "Boog" Armstrong entered a guilty plea in August to attempted murder and a drug-dealing charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance. The two charges stemmed from separate crimes.

District Attorney Lawerence Friedman said through the process of arresting Armstrong and obtaining a conviction, it never came out why Armstrong tried to kill another man Dec. 2 while on Jackson Street in the City.

"Motive is not an element of the crime," Friedman said. "It wasn’t something we would have known if we tried the case, nor did we need to know."

If he hadn't accepted the plea deal in August, a conviction at trial could have resulted in a 37-year prison term.

The sentence also includes nine years on the drug-dealing conviction.

The sentence was in line with the terms of the plea deal.

        Sean Vickers

District Attorney Lawrence Friedman thought for sure he was going to have to retry the local case against convicted child molester Sean Vickers after an appeals court overturned four of his jury trial convictions from 2014.

Vickers was back in Genesee County Court today. He was originally scheduled for a hearing on who his trial attorney would be and to clarify whether Vickers would testify before a grand jury presentment on the evidence against him this coming Tuesday.

Instead, Vickers surprised Friedman by agreeing to a plea deal that would cap his potential prison term on the charges to 40 years.

In 2014, Judge Robert C. Noonan handed down a 107-year sentence after Vickers was convicted at trial on similar charges.

The plea deal Vickers accepted today is the same one he turned down before that trial.

Since then, he's been convicted of one count in Genesee County that carried a seven-year prison sentence and of sexual abuse charges in Niagara County that resulted in a 20-year sentence.

This afternoon, Vickers was arraigned on four counts of course of sexual conduct in the first degree. He entered a guilty to plea to two counts in satisfaction of all four charges.

The four charges covered acts against two different victims, and the two counts admitted to were for sexual acts against a child under age 13 in 2001 through 2002 in the City of Batavia.

If the case had been presented to a grand jury, Friedman would have asked the grand jury to return an indictment that included two counts of predatory sexual assault against a child in the first degree, a Class A2 felony, which would have carried a mandatory sentence of 15 to life or 25 to life.

The plea deal means the victims won't have to testify in a second Genesee County trial and the 48-year-old Vickers won't likely get out of prison before the start of the second half of the century.

       Marlek Holmes

A sexual predator already serving 15 years in prison for his crimes against children is looking at possibly serving another seven years for assaulting fellow inmates in the Genesee County Jail and damaging jail property.

It took a jury three hours of deliberation after a three-day trial to find Marlek Holmes guilty on two counts of assault in the second degree and criminal mischief.

The potential sentence for Holmes:

  • Count 1: a determinate sentence of at least five years and as much as seven years on his conviction for a second-degree assault committed in the jail on June 5, 2016.
  • Count 2: a determinate sentence of at least five years and as much as seven years on his conviction for a second-degree assault committed in the jail on Oct. 30, 2016.
  • Count 3: an indeterminate sentence of at least one-and-a-half to three years and as much as two to four years on his conviction for third degree criminal mischief committed in the jail on Oct. 30, 2016.

State sentencing guidelines require the combined sentence for the assault charged be served consecutively to his current 15-year sentence unless the court finds it would be "in the interest of justice" to make the sentence concurrent to the 15-year sentence. The criminal mischief sentence can be either concurrent or consecutive.

Holmes will be sentenced Jan. 2 at 9:30 a.m.

He's scheduled for a third trial on two pending Class D felony charges for allegedly violating the terms of his status as a registered sexual offender. For those charges he would not be considered a second felony offender because they are crimes under Corrections Law, not Penal Law.

Therefore, if convicted in the third trial, he would face an indeterminate sentence of at least one-and-a-third to four years, and as much as two-and-a-third to seven years on each count. Under NYS law, the sentences may run consecutively or concurrently to his other sentences.

Press release:

The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) approved incentives for Triple O Mechanical in the Town of Bergen and 212 West Main Street Inc. in the City of Batavia at its Oct. 5 board meeting. The agency also accepted applications from Darien Lake and O-AT-KA Milk Products Cooperative.

Triple O will invest $400,000 to expand its existing facility from 6,960 square feet to 14,614 square feet, which will create one new job and retain 19 jobs. The company will receive sales and property tax exemptions totaling approximately $75,000. Triple O provides heating, air conditioning, refrigeration and electrical services for residential and commercial customers.

212 West Main Street Inc. is investing $895,000 for a new Arby’s Restaurant, which will include renovations of the interior and exterior of the existing building as well as the purchase of equipment. While a retail project, the 212 West Main Street project qualifies for incentives since it is located adjacent to a highly distressed area of the city. 212 West Main Street Inc. will receive sales, mortgage and property tax exemptions totaling approximately $66,500.  The new restaurant will create five new jobs.

An application for assistance was accepted by the GCEDC on behalf of Darien Lake Theme Park Resort for a new ride set to open in 2018. Darien Lake is seeking $360,000 in sales tax exemptions as part of a capital investment of $4.5 million. The project will help retain 398 jobs at one of the Buffalo Niagara and Finger Lakes regions most popular resorts.​

The GCEDC board also accepted an application from O-AT-KA for a $4.3 million capital investment for an approximate 20,000-square-foot expansion of the company’s plant on Ellicott Street. The company is requesting approximately $370,000 for sales tax and property tax exemptions.  The project will help retain 308 jobs in the Town and City of Batavia.

Since both O-AT-KA and Darien Lake are requesting incentives of more than $100,000, public hearings for both projects will be scheduled.

“Genesee County continues to see major business growth and investment in our existing companies,” said GCEDC Board Chair Paul Battaglia. “All of these projects send a positive message that Genesee County is open for business and a great place to grow.”

No injuries are reported. Batavia PD is not yet on scene. The bus was transporting 26 members of the Wilson High School junior varsity football team from a game when it encountered a roadblock set up at that intersection for this evening's 5K run and walk sponsored by the YWCA.

The driver attempted to turn the bus around when the tires got wedged in a gully at a grassy area. The Wilson athletes tried vainly to push the bus; it remains there for now.

UPDATE 7:21 p.m.: Batavia police are on scene. Parises Towing is en route to assist. The athletes are being treated to a hot and hearty Harvest Supper, which is also being served at the YWCA tonight, courtesy of the YWCA.
