State senator and local supervisor battle over jobs


HAMBURG, N.Y. -- Just south of the Ford Plant on Route 5 is one of the biggest construction sites in Western New York.

Workers are busy building a regional distribution center for FedEx. The warehouse will be 317,000 square feet, and FedEx will employee between 400 and 600 workers. The total cost is more than $50 million.

But State Senator Marc Panepinto (D-60th District) says it's not as good as it sounds.

"I think it's a bad deal," Panepinto said at a news conference outside the Hamburg Industrial Development Agency (IDA).

Panepinto is critical of the tax breaks it took to lure FedEx to hamburg.

Thief Targets Dog Ears Bookstore, Steals Two iPads

Thief Targets Dog Ears Bookstore, Steals Two iPads

 

Dog Ears Bookstore & Café, the nonprofit community bookstore known for its literary events serving people of all ages, was recently the target of a thief who broke into the bookstore after business hours and made off with two Apple iPads.

“It’s truly an unfortunate set of circumstances,” said Tom McDonnell, executive director of the bookstore. “The iPads are important from a business sense, yet our high insurance deductible makes it nearly impossible for us to replace them without assistance from the community. We hate to go public with bad news, but at this point we have no other choice. We just hope that in this case, good will overcome evil.”
