Money stolen from Orleans County club not part of scholarship fund

Niagara Gazette — A follow-up investigation by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office has determined that money stolen from the Shelridge Country Club earlier this month was not part of a scholarship fund established in memory of a local Marine killed two years ago.

Jacqueline King, 63, Medina, who was a country club employee, was arrested on July 9 and charged with the theft of $800. Initially it was reported that the money was part of a scholarship fund in honor of U.S. Marine Sgt. Trevor Cook, who was a native of Lyndonville. The fund benefits from a memorial golf tournament in Cook’s name that was held at Shelridge Country Club on July 5.

Follow-up investigation has since determined that the stolen money was the property of Shelridge Country Club and was not part of the fund, authorities said.

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.
