Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Sentenced to Death

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

A jury sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death Friday for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, sweeping aside pleas that he was just a “kid” who fell under the influence of his fanatical older brother.

After 10 weeks of heart-wrenching and often gruesome testimony from more than 150 witnesses, including survivors with missing limbs and an anguished father who spoke of watching his young son die on the sidewalk in front of him, a jury sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to the death penalty for his role in the deadly 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Tsarnaev offered no visible reaction.

The decision came a little over two years after a pair of pressure-cooker bombs ripped through a crowd of unsuspecting spectators near the marathon’s finish line in April 2013, killing three and injuring nearly 300. Among the injured: 17 amputees, many of whom took the stand against Tsarnaev with bomb shrapnel still embedded in their bodies.

Tumult in Williamsville District Leads Call For Unity, Healing

Residents of Williamsville School District attending board meeting last September clap in support of the teachers union as continuing controversies have marked an end to the “good times” and brought about a lively election with one-third of the board’s seats at stake.
Residents of Williamsville School District attending board meeting last September clap in support of the teachers union as continuing controversies have marked an end to the “good times” and brought about a lively election with one-third of the board’s seats at stake. 

When seven candidates for the Williamsville Board of Education gathered recently to debate education issues, talk was as much about healing the school district as it was about addressing parent concerns such as recess and standardized tests.

Candidates talked about “unifying the district,” “healing and improving relationships” and not having time for “arguments in the future.”

A deep divide between the School Board and the district’s teachers has produced one of the liveliest school elections in the Williamsville district in years. In two of out of the last three years, all candidates ran unopposed in the district accustomed to being highlighted for its academics. This year, there are seven candidates for three seats, and a wide range of opinions on how to maintain the district’s coveted top status in student performance measures.

And while there is little controversy over the district’s $178 million budget proposal, a plan to add turf, lights and concession stands at high school athletic fields has brought concerns from neighbors who felt they were left out of the early planning process.

Tenney: Comptroller’s Aidot Shows Cuomo’s Start-Up NY Program is Ineffective

Claudia Tenney

Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney (R,C-New Hartford) is calling on Gov. Cuomo to shut down his so-called ‘economic development program,’ START-UP New York. Tenney’s call comes after the release of numerous reports exposing the ineffectiveness of START-UP New York, including a report released yesterday by Comptroller DiNapoli’s office detailing the tremendously unsuccessful advertising campaigns of the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC). The report found that ‘no tangible results’ were generated from the $211 million in taxpayer money spent on these advertising campaigns, $53 million of which was spent on START-UP New York ads.

“The comptroller’s audit of START-UP New York confirms what we already knew – START-UP New York is a scam. It is a colossal waste of taxpayer money, thinly veiled as ‘economic development’ spending used to benefit Gov. Cuomo’s political ambitions,” said Tenney.

Tenney was one of the first legislators to demand a report on START-UP New York. Although a portion of this year’s budget designated more funding to the program, the first report’s publishing was delayed multiple times until after the budget had already been voted on. This left legislators to blindly vote for or against funding a program they had absolutely no information on.

Something to Think About

women striking in Reykjavik, Iceland, 1975
Thousands of striking women gather in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1975.

Happy May Day, belatedly.

Originally sparked by the Haymarket Massacre of 1886, when police cracked down on peaceful protestors rallying for an eight-hour work day in Chicago, International Workers’ Day has enjoyed a bit of a revival in the last several years. In 2006, activists organized “a day without an immigrant,” and immigrants’ rights actions have been a big focus of the day ever since. A couple years ago, Occupy activists attempted a (rather unsuccessful) nationwide general strike.

In honor of May Day — and as inspiration for future striking dreams — here’s an image from the feminist archives of one the more successful general strikes in history. On October 24 1975, Iceland’s women refused to do any work — outside or inside the home — taking “the day off” from paid labor, housework, and child care. An estimated 90 percent (what!!!) of Icelandic women participated and 25,000 — a tenth of the population — gathered at a rally in Reykjavik. As you might imagine, the country was basically shut down. An article the day after said, “The militant women…staged their token stoppage to show just how indispensable they are. And the men, who treated all the strike threats as a huge joke, began to get the point.” The day was later remembered as “the long Friday.” 

More than a century after the Haymarket Massacre, many American workers still don’t even have an eight-hour (paid) work day. And almost four decades after Iceland’s women proved how indispensable their under- and unpaid labor was, the second shift still falls mainly to women — and still isn’t valued as the real and vital work it is. So, um, make that “Unhappy May Day,” I suppose.

Village Looks at Traffic Counts, Discusses Noise Ordinance

Village of Williamsville 3

Thanks to the Greater Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council for working to address traffic problems at busy village intersections. Read the article below to see which solutions were recommended by the traffic experts.

Traffic congestion in the area of Evans and Eagle streets was the topic of a presentation at a Village Board work session on Monday by representatives of the Greater Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council.

Hal Morse and intern Satyavardhan Gogineni, of the GBNRTC, provided different models and displayed the flow of traffic in the area during both the morning and evening hours.

According to Gogineni, some of the solutions to reduce traffic include turn restrictions during peak hours, cul-de-sacs and street closures, one-way streets and changes to the on-street parking configuration.

He also noted the possibilities of synchronizing the signals at Essjay, Main and Evans streets and the removal of the two stop signs on Evans.
