A 37-year-old Corfu resident was flown by Mercy Flight to ECMC yesterday morning after her car struck a parked construction trailer on Hopkins Road, Pembroke, at 8:18 a.m.

The trailer was parked partially in the roadway and it may have been difficult for Lori Schwab to see in the early morning sun as she came over a rise in a hill, according to investigators.

She was driving a 2009 Chevy sedan.

The trailer is registered to B&B Paving and Excavating, of Middleport. It wasn't attached to another vehicle at the time of the accident.

Champions!!!! Is the new title for a group of Pembroke baseball players who won the annual 10U Nunda baseball tournament this Sunday in Nunda.

The tournament was composed of seven teams Pembroke, Arkport, Campbell, Nunda, Letchworth, Perry and Wayland.

The tournament started on Tuesday night with Pembroke facing off against Nunda.  

Nunda took the first game 16-10.

"It was a good tough fought game, our team grinded back but we came up short," said Jason Ball, head coach of the Dragons. "My assistants Jason Hootman, Jeff Abbatiello and I made a few changes stayed positive with our players and kept at it. Our team is resilient, and we believe we work harder than anyone out there and it shows on days like this."

The Dragons went on to beat Letchworth 8-4 in the next round and tied with them for first place in their pool.

Nunda, Letchworth, and Pembroke were all tied 1-1.

Nunda had 26 runs against Letchworth and Pembroke each had 20 runs against; a coin flip would decide the #1 seed and Pembroke won.

Ready to battle into the semifinals, Pembroke would take on #2 seed Campbell and come out victorious in a 6-3 final.

The Championship game would be decided Sunday between Pembroke and Perry.

"It was a fantastic game," Ball said. "Our boys came right out in the first inning and put two runs on the board and never looked back."

The Dragons won the matchup 10-4 to take the trophy back to their hometown.

"As a tournament coach, you have to ask yourself 'what is our goal?' Ours originally was to just get experience, then we were competitive, then we won. What more can you ask for from 9- and 10-year-old kids? These are a fantastic group of kids and the great thing about this team is there is only three 10-year-olds so our team is young and hungry for the game. Two of our 10-year-olds were the ace pitchers of the tournament."

Owen Hootman and Evan Schwerthoffer each pitched 12 innings in the tournament and combined for an impressive total of 55 strikeouts.

"These two boys have been our pitchers for the last two years and have worked very hard at their craft to be this successful," Bell said.

Kylan Ball led the way at the plate with eight hits .667 average, five RBIs, seven stolen bases, eight runs scored and four doubles.

"Our boys brought out the bats," Ball said.

Trey Newton had three extra base hits and hit .600. Anthony Abbatiello had seven hits, for a .467 average. Aiden Baldulf, Owen Hootman, and Evan Schwerthoffer all hit over .400.

The Pembroke team: Head Coach Jason Ball, assistant coaches Jason Hootman and Jeff Abbatiello, Players: Trey Newton, Kylan Ball, Owen Hootman, Evan Schwerthoffer, Anthony Abbatiello, Nolan Ball, Owen Shultz, Aiden Balduf, Brien Tyoe, Jayden Bridge, Landen Santini and Dylan Vaughn.

Through Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s BRIDGE NY program, Genesee County received two grants to rebuild two local bridges in Pembroke and Byron.

According to the governor’s website, the state is making $200 million available in enhanced assistance for local governments to rehabilitate and replace bridges and culverts statewide.

The Pratt Road bridge over Tonawanda Creek in Pembroke was structurally red flagged and load posted for 5 tons.

Highway Superintendent Tim Hens said the bridge over Tonawanda Creek is one of the top bridges in terms of need for replacement.

“It’s not a high-volume road,” Hens said. “But it is a key connector.”

The bridge replacement will be $178,000, with 95 percent being federally funded. 

The Searles Road bridge over Spring Creek in Byron will also be replaced.

Hens said the capital project established would amount to $133,000 for the Searles Road bridge, with 95 percent being federally funded.

This fall they will go through the design process and both bridges should be ready for construction in 2018.

“By time the state executes their part of the grant, the clock starts ticking,” Hens said. “We have to have the bridge under construction in 18 months.”

Charles Schilling, who has already had to change attorneys once, had several requests for County Court Judge Charles Zambito today: he wants a new attorney; he wants a change of venue; he wants a copy of the Grand Jury transcripts; he wants a copy of any of the discovery gathered in his case; he wants tapes or transcripts of calls he believes were recorded. 

He was very polite to Zambito while reading the statement he prepared and in responding to Zambito's questions or statements, but much of what he asked for, he isn't getting.

Schilling, a resident of Akron, but currently being held in the Livingston County Jail, was indicted on counts of second-degree burglary and second-degree criminal trespass a year ago. The charges stem from an apparent dispute with a woman in Pembroke. On Thanksgiving Day, Schilling was reportedly shot in the leg by the woman's father after he allegedly broke into their home.

Public Defender Jerry Ader became Schilling's attorney suddenly a couple of weeks ago after the private attorney who had been handling the case quit. Apparently, there were phone conversations between Schilling and the attorney that prompted the attorney to quit the case.

Schilling said he was just trying to ensure he was getting good representation because his parents laid out $15,000 for his defense. He wanted tapes of the conversations he had with his attorney because he believes the recordings, which he believes exist, would exonerate him of the accusation of speaking inappropriately to the attorney.

Zambito told him he has a new attorney, he's keeping his new attorney because he failed to show adequate cause for new appointed counsel, and any issue with his prior attorney was settled, as far as the court is concerned, once the attorney was removed from the case.

Schilling said he doesn't believe he can get a fair trial in Genesee County because he believes his troubles in the Genesee County Jail -- the reason he's being held in Livingston County -- will spill over into his trial.

Zambito denied his request for a change of venue.

Assistant Public Defender Robert Zickl said Schilling isn't entitled to copies of the Grand Jury transcripts, by statute, until his case goes to trial, and he shouldn't have them until then, and Zambito agreed.

Schilling also claimed that a person involved in the case was involved in making a pornographic video that can be found online and he wanted information on the investigation into the video.

Zickl said there is no such video; there is no investigation and there won't be an investigation.

As for other discovery, Ader is in the process of obtaining those documents and statements and asked for another 30 days to obtain and review the material.
