The first of four planned "Coffee Talk" events sponsored by Vibrant Batavia was held this morning at City Hall. The events are designed to collect feedback on what residents think needs to be done to improve life in Batavia and identify potential neighborhood leaders. Today's event was focused on residents from the Northside.

William Gregory, of State Street, pictured below, said he came out to the event this morning because he's concerned about his commmunity.

"I think it would be nice to know more of my neighbors and hopefully we can solve some of the issues we have," Gregory said.

Head Coach Jeremy Mettler of Batavia’s varsity volleyball team knew last night’s match-up would be a tough game going in. 

Batavia jumped ahead of Gates Chili in the first two sets 25-17 and 25-19. Senior Ashlee Yasses led the night for the Blue Devils with seven aces, 14 assists and seven digs. Seniors Haley Case had eight kills and Maggie Saquella five kills. Sophmore Tessa Engel added eight kills to the squad.  

Batavia was down by eight in the third set and was not serving well. Coach Mettler said, "We dug ourselves in a hole and battled back to finish close but lost 22-25."

Gates Chili had some new life and took one set at a time. Gates Chili Head Coach Cindy Hay said, "it has happened to us a couple times this season and the girls never give up. We wanted to win that third set and come back like we have before in games and prove it can be done."

5”2’ Freshman Jess Giannoccaro tallied eight kills, six aces,12 digs and one block while Lizzy Thrasher recorded nine kills and six blocks to help them turn the game around in the fourth set. Batavia lost that momentum and the set 15-25, which tied the night 2-2 for a fifth and deciding set.

Batavia came ahead early 5-1 and played aggressively serving like they did in the first two sets. Gates Chili came back to tie then went ahead 13-11 when both teams switched sides. Batavia got close to being down by four, but ended 17-25 in the last set. Gates Chili moved ahead to 7-2 on the year and Batavia’s record is 7-5.

Senior Night will finish Batavia’s next and last home regular season game on Oct. 17 vs. Brighton.

Le Roy extended its winning streak over Warsaw to 35 straight games with a win on Homecoming, 41-21.

The king of the night however, was junior Ryan McQuillen, who scored on three special teams plays.

The Knights got off to a slow start; as Warsaw struck first on a 30-yard scamper on 4th-and-17 from Colin Royce to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.

Le Roy immediately responded as McQuillen fielded the ensuing kickoff and took it 72 yards for the game-tying touchdown.

The Oatkan Knight defense locked down the Warsaw offense for much of the rest of the game, forcing eight consecutive punts by the Tigers.

Meanwhile, Le Roy found the end zone on four more plays of 35 yards or more.

Junior Quarterback Mike McMullen hit Jon Pierce on a 72-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter to take a lead they would never surrender.

Two minutes later Peter Privitera would cap off a seven-play, 35-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge.

McQuillen would strike again, this time taking a 35-yard punt to the end zone to give Le Roy a 27-7 lead.

McMullen would hit another long touchdown pass, this time a 78-yard bomb to Steve Cappotelli to end the half, up 33-7.

After the two teams would trade punts to start the second half, McQuillen once again took control, returning his second punt of the night for a score, this time from 57 yards out, giving Le Roy a 41-7 lead.

Warsaw would add two touchdowns to end the game, making the final score 41-21.

McQuillen finished the game with 227 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns on the night.

McMullen finished 5-of-13 passing for 166 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Meanwhile, Privitera once again led the rushing attack, finishing with 59 yards on 14 attempts and a touchdown.

Kody Lamkin had two sacks on defense for Le Roy (4-0), who will play at Avon next Friday.

Royce led the way for the Tigers (0-4), with 65 rushing yards and two touchdowns. 

Both Le Roy and rival Cal-Mum entered the night with 3-0 records. Cal-Mum lost to Bishop Kearney 48-46.

Also on Friday night:

Alexander did the main thing any team needs to to do beat Attica: Stop Matt Perry. The senior running back 12 yards on 10 carries. Perry didn't play the 4th quarter. Alexander won 30-15. Dylan Scharlau had 27 rushes for 156 yards and two touchdowns and a two-point conversion. Tyler Laird had seven carries for 75 yards. QB Nelson Burke, 4-7 passing for 52 yards and a TD. He had one interception. He also carried the ball four times for 15 yards, including two two-point conversion runs. Zach Laird had three receptions for 40 yards and a TD. One reception was a 25-yard TD catch on a 4th and 8 in the 4th quarter. Sam Browne had an 80-yard punt return in the third quarter to give Alexander the lead for good. Scharlau had nine tackles and Johnny George seven and an interception.

Oakfield-Alabama beat Pembroke 35-37. Allen Chatt was 12-16 for 115 yards and a touchdown. Chris Nanni rushed for 67 yards on 12 carries and returned a punt for a TD. O-A is now 2-2. The Hornets scored three times on turnovers. For Pembroke, Dakota Swimline rushed for 192 yards and a TD on 24 carries.

Present Tense books and gifts, on the corner of Washington and State, Batavia, will be closed as of Nov. 1, owner Erica Caldwell announced today in an e-mail to customers.

The store will start selling items at marked down prices on Oct. 8. Store fixtures will also be fore sale.

Here's a portion of the e-mail:

Present Tense could not have flourished for eight years without the help and support of many people:

  • YOU, our customers. It has been a privilege to provide books for you for these past eight years. We have enjoyed reading, talking, and sharing with you and treasure the many friendships we have made.
  • TERRI MARCHESE and MARCY RUBIN, my dependable, enthusiastic, book-loving sidekicks. Also, thank you to CHASITY MOORE, KELLY DUDLEY, and MARCIA GANN, who were willing to help out when needed.
  • MY FAMILY, especially my parents and sister, who spent quite a lot of time arranging, rearranging, hanging, shelving, fixing, proofreading, baking, and generally improvising to help me create the space and materials I envisioned for Present Tense. Thanks to my father-in-law for his willingness to put on a red suit and white beard every year for our Holiday Open House.
  • DARRICK COLEMAN, my husband, who was not only willing to let me try running an independent bookstore but has also been the one I call for all the worst jobs, like fixing the printers, hanging Christmas lights in high places in the freezing cold, correcting my endless bookkeeping errors, and once even donning the black robe and wig of Severus Snape. Malcolm Gladwell says that creative success is often highly contingent on the efforts of others, and that creative individuals’ stories are invariably love stories. That has certainly been the story of Present Tense.

It didn't take long for a young entrepreneur to fill the space that had been Casino's for decades.

The venerable Le Roy restaurant closed just months ago and Le Roy-native Sam Hillburger said when the space became available, he thought, "perfect."

He grew up with Casino's and liked the location.

His new eatery, Sammy HIlls, opened a week ago and serves hamburgers, hot dogs and plates.

The location is perfect for his ambitions he said, because he just wants a small restaurant where he puts out good food.

"I'm not in it to be big and expand," Hillburger said. "It's a small kitchen where you can put out some good food and call it a day."

Patties are fresh, hand-pressed every morning and the meat sauce and chicken are fresh dipped every morning.

After graduating from Le Roy High Sschool, Hillburger went to a culinary school in New Hampshire. He worked for three years at Alex's Place and for a time at the Avon Inn. Now he's ready to see what he can do on his own.

"I was ready to work for myself," Hillburger said. "I've always done it somebody else's way and I'm ready to do it the way I want to do it."

A lot's changed since Gary Diegelman became an emergency dispatcher 33 years ago.

When Diegelman started there was one computer in the dispatch center. There was a manual typewriter for incident reports and a handwritten blotter book.

Today, a dispatcher sits in front a multi-line phone with six computer screens to track calls, incidents and the location and availability of first responders.

On his first day on the job, Diegelman was told, "here's a chair. Here's your training manuals. Sit down and shut up."

On his second day on the job, there was only one other dispatcher scheduled to work, Tom Graham (now town justice in Oakfield). Graham turned to Diegelman and said, "I hope you know what you're doing because you've got fire dispatch."

Today, a dispatcher is put through a minimum of four months of training before they're allowed to take calls and make dispatches on their own.

All of the changes that have taken place to make the Genesee County Emergency Dispatch Center what it is today is enough change for Diegelman, he said.

"Everybody says you know when it's time, and it's time," Diegelman said during his retirement party at the Sheriff's Office on Park Road. "I've been through so many changes I don't want to go through any more changes. With this new radio system coming and everything else, it's time."

Sheriff Gary Maha praised not only Diegelman's persistence in a very stressful job but the experience and dedication he brought to the department.

"I think he enjoyed the job," Maha said. "He learned a lot and we will miss his experience and his expertise. Like any job, you've got to be able to enjoy the job to be able to stick with it as long as he did."

During his 33 year career, Diegelman received four commendation awards, a certificate of appreciation, a meritorious award for continuous excellence, and a distinguished service award.

The job of a dispatcher alternates between times quiet and calm and then moments if not hours of overwhelming call volume.

Computers, Maha said, haven't necessarily made the job easier. There's more information to track.

It takes a person uniquely suited to the job to make it as a dispatcher, Diegelman said. You've got to be able to handle the lulls as well as the times of frantic work. You've also got to be able to deal with a public that can sometimes be surly and uncooperative.

"You need to be able to hear the public, what they want and be able to help them," Diegelman said. "You get people won don't really know what they want and you need to stir them and help them get to the right spot and then you get people who are belligerent and don't treat you well on the phone and you've got to control your emotions."

And then, he said, "there are a number of people who don't often call an emergency dispatcher and when they do, they want something and they need something and you're the first one they talk to."

The job is all about serving the public, Diegelman said.

One call Diegelman remembers the most is the night a woman called and thought there was an intruder breaking into her house. It's not an unusual kind of call and often such calls prove to be unfounded, but this time, somebody had broken into this woman's house and while Diegelman was still on the phone with her. Somehow during the attack, the intruder realized the woman was on the phone with a 9-1-1 operator and fled.

The intruder was never caught, but the woman suffered no serious injuries and thanked Diegelman later for being there for her.

"You've got to be that person who can take the call and not let it get to you because the next day you've got to go on," Diegelman said.

After 33 years of service, Gary Diegelman will no longer be taking those calls.

The victim of an assault on State Street yesterday afternoon was released from the hospital this morning and his alleged assailant was jailed last night without bail.

Woodrow Clarence Horseman, 37, address unknown, was charged with assault, 2nd.

The name and age of his alleged victim have not been released.

Det. Kevin Czora said Horseman and the alleged victim are acquaintances, and while there may have been a verbal exchange prior to the victim being hit, witnesses said they saw nothing they believed would have provoked an assault.

The alleged assault occurred on State Street at about 3:15.

The alleged victim was reportedly unconscious when transported by Mercy EMS to the Mercy Flight hangar for air transport to Strong.
