Three men rescued from Lake Ontario waters

YOUNGSTOWN — Three men were pulled from the waters of Lake Ontario after their boat took on water in heavy waves and capsized Saturday afternoon.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a boat in distress by one of the occupants about 2.5 miles north of Youngstown about 3:30 p.m.

U.S. Coast Guard officials sent a rescue boat which found the three men — two 51-year-old men from Wellsville and a 61-year-old Andover man — clinging to the side of the boat. A U.S. Border Patrol helicopter assisted in the search.

They were brought to the Coast Guard station at Youngstown and transported to Mount St. Mary’s Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

The 18-foot Crestliner was not recovered.

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.
