The message said the breaks are in Amherst, Depew, Hamburg, Lackawanna, Lancaster, and West Seneca.  It went on to say customers may see discolored water coming from the taps or experience low water pressure.  In some cases, there may be no water flowing at all.

Mazurek’s Financials: A Sloppy Illegal Mess

Democratic candidate for the 143th Assembly District, Kristy Mazurek, filed her campaign financials almost a week too late. Neither she nor her campaign offered a credible excuse for this delay, which is evidence either of design or negligence.

You may recall that this person is a cooperating witness into a wide state and federal probe into disgraced political operative Steve Pigeon’s dealings over the years.  This particular Assembly district has seen its last two representatives leave office in a prurient disgrace, and it’s safe to say that ethics and public integrity in Albany are big issues for voters this year.

The campaign finance illegality of Mazurek’s zombie committee, the “WNY Progressive Caucus” (AwfulPAC), has been well-documented, and it’s safe to say that its record of impropriety was not by accident, but by design. It was set up as the 2013 iteration of the perennial Pigeoning effort; a shady conduit for Pigeon’s dirty money to be funnelled, sub rosa when possible, against candidates endorsed by Democratic Headquarters. It was the point of entry for the May 2015 Preetsmas raids which led to the Michalek conviction, the Pigeon indictment, and whatever more might come down that pike.

Walmart To Start Selling ‘Ugly’ Produce To Fight Food Waste

inglorious fruits and vegetables

For most, a trip to Walmart isn’t a particularly newsworthy event.

But for Jordan Figueiredo, food waste activist and the human behind the @UglyFruitAndVeg social media campaign, a visit to Walmart’s headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas on Wednesday represented the culmination of more than a year’s worth of work. His mission? Deliver a petition, signed by more than 140,000 consumers, asking the nation’s largest supermarket chain to commit to selling “ugly” fruits and vegetables in an effort to curb food waste.

If selling a misshapen apple or knobby carrot sounds like a risky business move for grocery stores, it’s also an idea that is being embraced by more and more supermarkets around the world. Two years ago, Intermarché, the third-largest supermarket in France, launched a program selling imperfect fruits and vegetables at a 30 percent discount — the program was a near-instant success, selling out completely and increasing store traffic by 24 percent. Other stores have followed suit, especially outside of the United States, with large grocery stores in Canada and England also committing to ugly produce programs.

“The impact that Walmart has on anything that they do, if they decide to do anything, it has ripples,” he said. “They are known as a low-cost leader, so why shouldn’t they be selling this produce at a lower cost?”

Williamsville Woman Gets Six Months for Stealing $300,000 From Mother

Amherst Police 4
A Williamsville woman was sentenced to six months in jail and will be on probation for five years after stealing nearly $300,000 from her mother between 2012 and 2015.

Sandra Krok, 55, also was ordered to make full restitution of the theft by Erie County Court Judge Thomas P. Franczyk.

Krok, who had power of attorney to her widowed mother, took the money from her mother’s bank account without her mother’s knowledge.

Officials said Krok told them she took the cash to pay college tuition for her daughters. Records suggest she used it to travel and buy “luxury items,” officials said.

First Water Tests From Northern Erie County Come Back Negative

water fawcet

The first round of test results around northern Erie County’s water-supply system came back negative for bacterial growth, the Erie County Department of Health announced early Friday afternoon.

If the second round of tests also come back negative, the boil-water advisory would be lifted for around a quarter-million residents.

Samples taken Thursday from 11 sites were analyzed at the Erie County Public Health Laboratory.

As the second round of tests began Friday morning, a boil-water advisory remains in effect for almost 250,000 residents in the wake of Wednesday’s major water-main break in Amherst.

Results of the second round of tests will be available Saturday afternoon, the health department said.

Amherst Meals on Wheels on announced the agency will provide bottled water with its delivered meals on Friday. The organization delivers meals, which normally include milk or juice, to 220 homebound and disabled clients in Amherst and Williamsville.

Several Dead in Munich Shopping Center

BREAKING  NEWS

A massive manhunt is underway in Munich after a suspected terror attack on a city shopping mall where “multiple” people are feared dead.

There was no official casualty report from the scene at the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping mall, but German public broadcaster BR reported that at least six people had been killed. Germany’s dpa news agency reported that police spoke of an “acute terror threat” and “expect multiple dead.”

Munich’s transit system was shut down and police asked people to avoid public places. The U.S. Consulate in Munich echoed that warning, advising American citizens to “shelter in place”. Highways heading out of the city were closed and vehicle checkpoints were established.

“At the moment no culprit has been arrested,” Munich police said on social media. “The search is taking place at high speed.”
