Benefit set for son of deputy


Niagara Gazette — Logan's battle is far from over and the cost of of his treatment has begun to take a financial toll on the family. The Reele's also have a son Caiden, 7, and a new daughter, Shaylee, 3 months, and life had become a bit overwhelming.

So, to help stem the tide, Marc's "family" at the Sheriff's Office has stepped up. On Sunday, they'll hold a benefit for Logan at the Lewiston 2 Fire Hall, 1705 Saunders Settlement Road.

"I'm a mom and I've been (at the Sheriff's Office) for a long time and we just thought (the Reeles) could use our help," said Melissa Colangelo-Steen, one of the benefit organizers. "And we've gotten a ton of support from the community."

Colengelo-Steen said in addition to great food and music, the benefit will feature an auction of more than 300 gift baskets and more than 40 big-ticket items, including electronics and valuable items donated by the Buffalo Sabres.

"I'm sure (the benefit) is going to be a little overwhelming," Carol Reele said. "But we're definitely excited and I know Logan is excited."

Marc Reele said the outpouring of support has left him almost speechless.

"It's really nice," he said. "I can't say enough about how good everyone has been. Everyone here (in the Sheriff's Office), we really are like a family. People kept asking what could they do and I can't believe what they've done."

Benefit for Logan Reele When: noon to 6 p.m. Sunday Where: Lewiston 2 Fire Hall, 1705 Saunders Settlement Road Why: To help support Logan in his battle against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Cost: Tickets are $20 at the door

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
