The Village of Corfu will rely less on reserve funds and more on a tax increase to balance the 2013/2014 budget.

Trustees approved the $788,332 spending plan Monday night.

While spending drops from the previous year by $106,000, property taxes go up 5 percent to $3.11 per thousand of assessed value.

The sewer fee goes up 4 percent to $6.24 per thousand.

The reserve fund will be tapped for $3,200.

The village will spend $1,500 on training for its first-term mayor.

With the resignation of the police administrator, the village cut police department spending by $20,000.

Two staff members took voluntary cuts to 32 hours a week.

Non-union employees receive a 1 percent pay increase to offset an increase in health insurance premiums.

A Pembroke woman was pronounced dead at the scene of a head-on collision on Route 5 near the Erie County Line in Pembroke late this afternoon.

Mary J. Smith, 61, was westbound in a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier when a 2011 Toyota Sienna minivan crossed the center line and struck her vehicle head-on on the driver's side.

Investigators have yet to determine why the eastbound Toyota veered from its own lane.

The Toyota's driver, Victoria A. Zimmer, 55, of Clarence, was seriously injured and taken by Mercy Flight to ECMC.

Smith is a relative of several members of the Pembroke Volunteer Fire Department, so members of the Akron Volunteer Fire Department handled critical aspects of the accident scene.

No charges have been filed. The accident remains under investigation.

Assisting at the scene were Indian Falls, Corfu and Darien's ambulance along with Mercy EMS.

The accident investigation is being handled by Deputy Chad Minuto, Sgt. Ron Meides, Investigator Roger Stone and Deputy John Duyssen.

A pedestrian has been struck by a car at Main and Oak streets, Batavia.

State Police are on scene. City fire and Mercy EMS being dispatched.

UPDATE 8:22 a.m. (by Billie): A medic at the scene says the pedestrian will be transported to the hangar and taken to a hospital via Mercy Flight.

UPDATE 8:39 p.m.: The pedestrian is a female who suffered a compound leg fracture and will be flown to Strong Memorial Hospital. She was reportedly part of a crew here to sell a special kids' edition of the Buffalo News. Reportedly there are three witnesses, two who were interviewed at the scene, and a school bus driver.

UPDATE 9:18 a.m.: The woman was crossing the street and another vehicle blocked her view of an oncoming car, and blocked that driver from seeing her, according to Officer Eric Hill. The accident is under investigation and no decision has been made about who, if either party, will get a citation. The woman appears to have suffered no other injury than the broken leg, but she will be evaluated at Strong. It doesn't appear that she was actively selling papers at the time of the accident. If she was part of the crew, she was apparently crossing the street to join a crew of people on the Oliver's corner.

The Genesee Community College softball team lost both games of a doubleheader to Onondaga Community College on Monday afternoon, losing game one 12-8 and falling in game two, 8-4.

GCC honored sophomores Alishia Foss, Chelsea Lynch and Miki Kawaguchi to begin the afternoon as Monday marked the final doubleheader of the season.

Kawaguchi delivered three hits and scored three runs in game one, but Onondaga scored five runs in the first and five in the second to jump in front with a lead they would not give up.

Genesee put together a four-run third inning to get to within 10-7, but managed only a run on four hits the rest of the way.

Foss finished game one 3-4 with a run scored and two runs batted in. Rachel VanDuser went 2-4 with a double, a triple and a run scored and Lynch added three hits, an RBI and a run scored.

Foss took the loss on the mound, throwing all seven innings, allowing 12 runs and striking out four.

The Lady Cougars answered two OCC runs in the top of the fourth with two runs in the bottom of the inning, but did not score the rest of the game and managed only three hits in the final three innings.

Lynch scored two runs in game two and went 2-4 at the plate. Taylor Gayton delivered an RBI double, VanDuser went 2-3 with a run scored and Kawaguchi went 2-4 with two singles.

Andrea Pursel took the loss on the mound, allowing eight runs on 11 hits and struck out four.

It's a bird. It's a plane. No, .... it's a piece of a farmer's crop cover.

Remember the story Saturday about a balloon "or something like" falling from the sky near Pratt Road.

One resident described it as "a giant roll of toilet paper" flying through the air.

East Pembroke's fire chief, Don Newton, called today and clued us in on what really happened.

On Friday, a local farmer put down a 250x50-foot cloth crop cover over freshly planted seeds. It was weighted down with soil.

But a strong enough gust of wind hit East Pembroke on Saturday to rip up a portion of the cover and send it flying through the air. It traveled a good long distance before getting snagged in the trees.

Everybody who responded thought it was a weather balloon and spent a good deal of time looking for the weather device that would have been attached to it. The Buffalo weather station wanted it back.

But, we now know, there was no such device attached.

Newton said the farmer was afraid he'd be in a bit of trouble for the mishap, but Newton reassured him -- you're a farmer, this is an agricultural community, things happen.

Wouldn't it be great to eat a juicy, sweet, fresh locally grown strawberry right about now?

You may think that's impossible, but thanks to Pudgie Riner, owner of Triple P Farms in Oakfield, starting Wednesday, you will be able to buy locally grown fresh strawberries at Harrington's Produce Stand at 5282 Clinton Street Road, Batavia.

Always an innovator looking for new ideas, Riner found a picture online of a farmer in Denmark growing strawberries from hanging baskets in a hothouse and he realized he could do locally and get strawberries out to market weeks ahead of other local farmers.

"The concern is, if we say we've got fresh strawberries from New York, nobody going to believe us," Riner said. "These really are grown right here. They're not from Florida.They're not from California. They're grown right here in New York and the same varieties that are grown locally and people are used to eating from the ground, but these are grown in a basket."

The 5,000 plants are two years old and should produce 5,000 quarts of strawberries, Riner said.

Peak harvest will be within 10 days, which is a little earlier than Riner wanted, but he'll learn from this year's growing cycle and push it back a bit next year.

He partnered with Andy Harrington (left, above) to bring the strawberries to market because the Harrington family has such a good reputation for locally grown produce.

"I decided that knowing his business, he is the right guy to sell them," Riner said. "I could sell them in my own place, Pudgie's, but I don't have the reputation of being in the produce business, so that would be one more hurdle."

Harrington's on Clinton Street opens Wednesday. The family's Oakfield location, 7550 Lewiston Road, opens in June.

It was an easy decision to take on Pudgie's berries, Harrington said. It gives him more stock early in the spring and, "they're fresh and they taste great."

posted by Tasia Boland in batavia, Habitat for Humanity.

Amy Burdick and her son, Mikah, were living in a subsidized, substandard apartment in the City of Batavia until Habitat entered their lives and worked with them so they could experience what it feels like to own a home of their own for the very first time. 

Burdick is Habitat for Humanity of Genesee County’s 10th homeowner. Burdick showed volunteers a cell phone photo she had taken of her current front door (having an inch gap where light and heat were escaping) as she stood next to her brand new energy-efficient home with a big smile. 

Habitat of Genesee did a complete rehab at 104 North St. in a total of 10 months. 

“Being a part of Habitat for Humanity as a homeowner is a life-changing experience,” Burdick said.

She highly recommends it to other families who are trying to make ends meet. 

Before Burdick received a flier about homeownership with Habitat, she hadn’t considered buying a house in the near future. But she decided to call about the opportunity, and before she knew it, she was selected as a partner family.

“I remember how excited my mom, sister and I were.” Burdick said. “We were peeking through the windows before construction had even started.” 

Burdick’s family was thrilled to know they could provide lunches to the volunteers. Along with other volunteers, Burdick’s family was very dedicated in making sure the volunteer work crew was properly feed.

One RIT student said one of the best parts of volunteering with Habitat are the delicious home-cooked meals.

The demo for this house was started during the National Women’s Build Day sponsored by Lowe’s on May 12, 2012. Women’s Build Day brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of families worldwide. Women and children are often hardest hit by this epidemic.

Because Habitat is a program that is structured to be a “hand up” and not a “hand out,” Habitat homeowners are required to put in sweat equity hours. Burdick put in a total of 350 hours on top of working two full-time jobs. 

Her favorite part of partnering with Habitat?

“The wonderful people,” she said with a warm smile. “I didn’t know there were people out there still like that, who are so caring, kind and promising."

The house was built by volunteers who met two days a week, six hours a day. There were more than 150 volunteers who gave their time to help make this house a home.

Burdick is still in amazement she said because; “People who do not know me are doing all of this for a total stranger.” She commented about volunteer PJ Riner who spent countless hours in between the work days volunteering his time and how grateful she is for him and those who spent so many hours on this house.

Burdick said she will always be connected to Habitat because "they are a group of people with big hearts who want to improve the community and we always had a good time.”

Genesee Habitat will begin rehabbing their next home on 11 Harvester Ave. in Batavia. The demo on this house will kick off with the 2013 Women’s Build Day. Work will take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers are needed and all skill levels are welcome. Visit to sign up and learn more.

A 17-year-old Le Roy resident is facing a felony drug-dealing charge after allegedly giving a high school student marijuana.

The student was later hospitalized when found "highly impaired" on the grounds of the high school April 15.

Charged with a Class D felony of Criminal Sale of Marijuana is Austin J. Nicometo of 45 North Street, Le Roy.

Under NYS law, giving another person drugs, even if no money changes hands, is considered a sale.

Nicometo is suspected of supplying the other youth with marijuana at a location in the village after school let out that day, and then the teen returned to the school for after-school activities.

Following arraignment, Nicometo was released under supervision of Genesee Justice.

A 5-year-old child was playing ball in the playground at the end of Stanley Place at 5:15 p.m., Sunday, and got too close to a dog and was bit, according to Le Roy PD.

In the confusion following the incident, the child's mother left and took the 5-year-old to the doctor but did not obtain the name of the dog's owner.

The owner reportedly said the dog was up-to-date with all of its shots, but police would still like to identify the animal and ensure that is the case.

The dog is described as a German shepherd mix and weighs approximately 80 pounds. It is tan with a black snout, with the body of a German shepherd but the head of a chow chow. The people with the dog were a blond woman with braces and in her mid-20s, a 4-year-old boy along with a woman about 5'6" and in her 30s. They were in the park with a red metal wagon.

From the press release:

We are seeking assistance with identification as it is vital to determine proof of rabies immunization with the animal. Without this, it may be necessary to subject the bitten child to a series of injections relative to potential rabies contact. If you know who this is, or recognize yourself, please call either Tom Sacco at the Genesee County Health Department at 344-2550, ext. 5496, or the on-duty Le Roy Police officer at 345-6350 so that we may obtain the necessary information relative to rabies vaccination of the dog.

The Le Roy Police Department in conjunction with the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency wish to thank all the citizens that participated in the National Drug Drop Off Program which occurred Saturday 4/27/13 at the Le Roy Police Department and all those who dropped off medications throughout the past six months.

The Le Roy Police Department delivered 186 pounds of excess medications and 31 pounds of needles to the Federal DEA for incineration.

This program keeps these medications and needles out of the hands of our children, out of our landfills and out of our water system.

Again the Le Roy Police Department reminds citizens both in and around the Village of Le Roy that the Le Roy Police Department does accept excess medications at the Police Department any day; please ask to speak with the Officer on Duty. Needles are only accepted on the two specific dates each year set for the drug drop off and future dates will be publicized.

For those citizens who reside inside the Village limits and who are disabled or unable to deliver the medications to the Police Department, we will make arrangements to have an officer drive to your residence and retrieve the medications.

One thing is certain, Benjamin W. Muntz is going to prison. For how long is an unanswered question after Judge Robert C. Noonan decided he needs to know whether the District Attorney's Office will indict Muntz on any new charges.

The DA is considering whether to charge Muntz with bail jumping.

More than a year ago, Muntz failed to appear for his sentencing on Class D felony convictions of burglary, 3rd, and grand larceny, 3rd.

The 24-year-old Oakfield resident is suspected of fleeing the state to avoid getting sentenced and while he was away he amassed a longer criminal record.

In October, he was arrested in Fayetteville, Ark., and charged with burglary, theft of property, breaking or entering and fraudulent use of a credit/debit card.

Muntz received a prison sentence in Arkansas and was released last week and turned over to the Sheriff's Office.

During his time away, Muntz was suspected of plotting with another man in Fayetteville to rob a farm in Genesee County. He is also reportedly wanted in Georgia for alleged crimes there.

With his failure to appear for sentencing March 27, 2012, Muntz appears to have blown a deal to receive concurrent sentences on the two felony convictions.

Assistant District Attorney Melissa Cianfrini said that even before he left the state, Muntz was suspected of violating the terms of his release under supervision by drinking and using drugs.

Muntz is married with two children.

"When you look at his pre-sentence investigation and read his mother's letter, you see that his offenses are fueled by abuse of drugs and his own greed," Cianfrini said. "He has repeatedly shown that he would rather go down the path of criminal activity rather than being responsible for his own family. He was only given a release under supervision because his wife was pregnant."

Defense Attorney Thomas Burns raised the issue of Muntz facing a possible charge of bail jumping, which could lead to a mandatory concurrent sentence with his other charges.

That possibility prohibited Burns, he said, from him discussing in court the circumstances of Muntz fleeing the state.

Noonan asked Cianfrini if the people intend to file such a charge, and Cianfrini said the matter is still under investigation and hasn't been decided.

The law would allow Noonan to consider "mitigating circumstances" and not impose consecutive sentences.

"It's hard to imagine under what set of facts exist that might be mitigating circumstances, but I don't want to prejudge the case," Noonan said. "He's going to state prison. It's just costing us money to house him here. I have an inkling I'll impose a sentence on one felony count today while we make a decision about what to do."

Noonan sentenced Muntz to three and a half to seven years in state prison on the burglary, 3rd, conviction and warned Muntz that he may yet face concurrent sentences on both the grand larceny conviction and the possible bail jumping charge, if convicted.

Muntz will appear in County Court again at 1:30 p.m., June 4, to learn the rest of his fate.

"You certainly don't know what it means to be a father," Noonan said. "The conduct you have engaged in over and over again, and the irresponsible behavior that is so evident not only in your PSI, but in your departure from the state, when you were told what would happen to you if you did, is astonishing. If you loved your children, you wouldn't have engaged in criminal conduct in the first place, but you certainly wouldn't have engaged in the conduct that sent you out of state."

If Maurice G. Leach wants to get out of the Genesee County Jail anytime soon, he'll need to come up with $15,000 cash bail or $150,000 bond, Judge Robert C. Noonan ruled today.

Leach is facing a felony DWI charge, but his criminal background along with prior probation and parole violations had Noonan siding with District Attorney's Office rather than Leach's defense attorney, who asked for $5,000 bail.

Noonan said he would have set the bail higher if the DA's office had requested it.

"The prosecutor is nicer to you than I would be," Noonan said.

Leach was arrested last week for allegedly driving drunk on Route 33 in Stafford.

In January, the 36-year-old Leach, a resident of State Street, was allegedly involved in an altercation with police after officers arrived to investigate a report of a woman being hit.

He's also facing petit larceny charges in Rochester.

Leach's attorney requested the bail hearing before Noonan today because with Leach's prior felony, Town of Batavia Court was unable to set any amount of bail.
