posted by Howard B. Owens in crime, Le Roy.

An ongoing dispute between property owners in Le Roy reportedly became physical this morning and one of the neighbors, Stephen R. Barbeau, the Town of Le Roy supervisor, was arrested by Le Roy PD.

Barbeau, 55, of 9 Filmore St., Le Roy, is charged with harassment, 2nd.

According Barbeau's neighbor, Pete McQuillen, Barbeau was upset because a tree on McQuillen's property fell and Barbeau believed a portion of the tree came down onto his property.

"He bull rushed me and blew me back into some stumps we'd already cut," McQuillen said.

McQuillen suffered a minor sprained shoulder and he said he will see an orthopedic specialist tomorrow about neck pain.

Barbeau said that this was the third time one of McQuillen's trees has fallen onto his property. One time, he said, the tree damaged his house. This morning when it happened again, he went onto McQuillen's property.

"It was quite heated," Barbeau said. "He got heated right back. I pushed him with my hands open on his chest and he fell to the ground."

It was Barbeau's wife who called the police, Barbeau said.

Harassment in the second degree is a violation (in other words, it's not as high as a misdemeanor).

McQuillen and Barbeau live nearby each other, but the ongoing dispute involves property McQuillen owns that is adjacent to Barbeau's. 

McQuillen had plans to build 26 single-family homes for people 55 and over on the property.

After McQuillen believed he won the right to move forward with the development, Barbeau joined in a lawsuit with neighbor David S. Boyce against the town planning board claiming the development was not properly approved. The suit eventually lead to McQuillen's plans being scuttled.

McQuillen is now building other structures on the property and that's another point of contention. McQuillen said he's doing everything within code. Barbeau said he is not.

Barbeau also accused McQuillen of storing junk on the propety and clearing away brush and trees that destroy any privacy barrier.

"He's never met a tree he doesn't like to take down," Barbeau said.

Barbeau was arraigned in Town of Le Roy Court and released on his own recognizance. Town Justice Daryl Sehm also signed an order of protection.

A Batavia man is facing 8 to 16 years in prison after guilty pleas this morning in Genesee County Court to two counts of burglary, 3rd, and one count of attempted burglary, 3rd.

Samuel G. Malone, 27, who lived on Walnut Street, but said in court this morning that he's now living at a rehab facility, was originally indicted on the attempted burglary charge as a "John Doe," because all investigators had was DNA evidence.

After Malone was convicted on a felony in another county, police were able to match his DNA to blood found on a broken window at 112 Ellicott St., Batavia, which was then the Ponderosa Steakhouse.

There was no apparent entry at the Ponderosa location and nothing was reported stolen.

But there were other burglaries in 2008, such as Clor's Meat Market, then on Pearl Street in the city, that investigators were able to link to Malone.

Malone will be sentenced Nov. 7.

The turnout for the Uproar Festival at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center was moderate -- something over 6,000 paying customers, but those who did make their way to the venue surely weren't disappointed. There was plenty of quality music for the punk/grunge/heavy rock fan.

There were also activities and merchant booths to amuse concertgoers between acts.

While some might think all the of the action was on the main stage, the secondary change may actually have been more entertaining. The bands there were Cry to the Blind, the Chuck Shaffer Picture Show, Dead Daisies, Middle Class Rut, New Politics and Walking Papers.

The Dead Daises are an interesting act -- kind of a super group, though most fans would readily recognize the names of band members, they've all performed on hit records. The Dead Daisies are billed on the band's Web site as a project of former Guns and Roses guitarist Slash, but performing on lead guitar in Darien on Sunday was Richard Fortus, who has also taken on lead guitar duties with Guns and Roses.

Walking Papers was another experienced, tight band that knows how to put on a live show.

Definately in the up-and-coming category is the Chuck Shaffer Picture Show. 

New Politics was entertaining, to say the least, and has a bit of an old-school British Punk vibe to their music.

On the main stage there was Circa Survive, Coheed & Cambria, Jane's Addiction and Alice in Chains.

Great performances all the way around, of course, but it was something special to see Dave Navarro (guitarist, Jane's Addiction, top photo) perform live.

You won't see photos of Alice in Chains here. The band's management insists on pre-publication approval of photos. I won't sign such an agreement. My deal is, I won't tell you what songs to play and you don't tell me what photos to shoot.

Perry Farrell, Jane's Addiction.

Richard Fortus, lead guitar, Dead Daisies.

Active duty service members Kyle A. Shrum and Nicole L. Woodard were married Saturday in Oakfield's Memorial Park.

Nicole's grandmother Bonnie Gendron said it's the first wedding held in the park.

The couple met at the Army's Fort Gordon in Augusta, Ga., and Kyle, 19, is from VanBuren, Ark., and Nicole, 19, is from Oakfield.

UPDATE: Melissa Baker says that there was at least one more wedding in Memorial Park before this one.  That was the wedding of her sister, Tiffany Reynolds and Koree McAlister. McAllister is an active Marine and both are from Oakfield. They were married last summer in Memorial Park.

posted by JIM NIGRO in outdoors, nature, blue jay, house finch, veery thrush.

The first time I saw a house finch I thought I was looking at a sparrow/cardinal hybrid. Like many song birds, this one perched in our apple tree no doubt looking for insects.

Having spotted me, he immediately took what he felt was appropriate action............

As I understand it, this bit of displaying is something birds do to mark their territory to intruders or in hopes of attracting a mate.

Here's a literal bird's eye view of a visitor whose incessant squawking often gives him away long before he comes into view...........

unlike other songbirds, the noisy Bluejay didn't come here in seach of bugs. The apple tree is lush this year and no doubt he's here to gorge himself on fresh fruit. He must have been hungry -- despite my close proximity, he refused to leave.

For the past couple of weeks this little songster had been singing its heart out, while hidden amid the apple tree foliage. Its song was pleasant, and a sound I either had not heard before or perhaps just hadn't been mindful of. Try as we might, Claudia and I were unable to get a look as it flitted from branch to branch. If we attempted to move in for a closer it would fly off into an adjoining woodlot.  

As I took its picture it began belting out the same melody we had been hearing previously....... the closest resembling photo I could find in either the Smithsonian or Audubon field guides indicated it might be a Veery thrush. Still not certain, but its sound was most pleasing to the ears.
