Police on the trail of bomb scare caller


Niagara Gazette — In the Falls, parents were notified of the lockdown via the district's all-call system and kept informed of the situation as details became available. A team of three police K-9 units searched the high school and found nothing.

"At 10:28 a.m. the school was taken off lockdown, after being cleared by three (bomb-sniffing) dogs." Falls Police Superintendent Bryan DalPorto said.

School district officials also dealt with a second threat on Monday, when an anonymous call was placed to Hyde Park Elementary School  at 12:18 p.m. A district spokesperson said a lockdown of that building was initiated and lasted until 12:48 p.m., when staff and students were given the all-clear.

Falls school officials said it wasn't clear whether the second threat was related to the bomb claims involving the high schools or an isolated incident.

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.
