Sheriff's Office announces 'Click It or Ticket'

Niagara Gazette — NIAGARA COUNTY

Sheriff’s Office announces ‘Click It or Ticket’

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office will be taking part in the “Click It or Ticket” campaign with law enforcement agencies from across the state starting Monday through June 1.

According to data the Sheriff’s Office released, fatal crashes doubled on Niagara County roadways from 2012 to 2013. Further, one out of 10 drivers do not wear a seat belt, and seat belt usage drops at night. Pickup drivers and their passengers also tend to wear seat belts less than drivers of other vehicles.

Wearing a seat belt is the best way to save lives and reduce serious injuries during accidents, Niagara County Sheriff Jim Voutour said.



Memorial Day ceremony set

The American Legion Wheatfield Post 1451 will be conducting a Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 26 at 11:00 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial on Ward Road.

Following the ceremony, chowder will be for sale at the Legion Post along with a raffle for a basket of cheer.



Skateland set to close

Skateland will officially be closing its doors Monday.

The owners of the nearly 30 year old skating complex Skateland expressed their financial distress in March.

Owners Brian and Lori Ferraro were able to raise over $20,000 of the $57,000 in back taxes due to the city over the past few months, but fell short of the amount needed before the May 16 deadline.

The money raised will go to the city treasurer toward the balance of the taxes owed.

The owners also stated that the city will receive the full money due though an auction either run by the skating complex or by the city.

Skateland will be open all regular hours through Sunday.

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.
