Dale’s Briefs – Monday December 5th
More trouble for former Buffalo Sabre Matthew Barnaby. The ESPN hockey analyst was charged with DWI early this morning in Clarence when troopers spotted him driving without a front tire. He failed several roadside sobriety tests and refused a breath test.
A Niagara County sheriff’s police K-9 dog died yesterday while searching for burglary suspects. The dog fell from a rooftop in Niagara Falls.
Another fatal hunting accident over the weekend. This one in the Town of Stockton in Chautauqua County Saturday night. 33-year old Jeffrey Roberts of the Town of Sheridan died of a gunshot wound.
Those protesters camped out in Niagara Square say they play to stay there during the winter months. They’ve erected a geodesic dome that will serve as a warming area. It was given to them by an anonymous donor.
Amherst police decided not to press criminal charges in the Jamie Rodemeyer suicide case, but the school district has suspended a number of students. The school district won’t say how many Williamsville North students were suspended, but says it’s for up to five days with any long-term suspensions subject to a hearing. Because of the ages of the students, expulsion was not an option.
In five weeks the Bills have gone from 5 & 2 to 5 & 7 and another year out of the playoffs. The offense of the Tennessee Titans was the latest to overwhelm the Bills gaining key first downs when they needed to and holding on for a 23-17 win, handing the Bills a fifth straight loss. It was the bills first game at home in a month and it certainly wasn’t worth the wait. And that pretty much set the stage for a game where again the Bills turned the ball over, missed tackles, missed blocks, drew bad penalties, dropped passes. It’s hard being a Bills fan. They travel to San Diego next week.
