The demolition of the former Kelly’s Saloon, Honeygirl Gourmet and two second-story apartments on Main Street in Geneseo began Monday morning just before 10 o’clock. Empire Wrecking used handheld tools to take down the sections of the building that was destroyed by fire back on July 29. The crew from Empire Wrecking used hoses to keep water on the demolition site to help cut down on asbestos dust.

Police are investigating after an accident Monday afternoon on Barks road in Caledonia. An SUV and farm tractor crashed as they tried to pass each other, no one was seriously hurt. The only occupant of the SUV reported a minor mouth injury. The tractor was hauling a large field roller.

A Hemlock woman 26 year old Nickki Perrin was arrested last week on drug charges after she failed to use a turn signal. Geneseo Police stopped Perrin after she allegedly failed to properly signal her turn onto Lima Road. Police then found seven pills of diazepam, for which she did not have a prescription, as well as marijuana.

The Livingston County Department of Health has scheduled five flu clinics during October. This week they will be held Wed at Caledonia Elementary School Cafeteria on North St from 3 to 6 p.m. and on Thursday at Geneseo Middle School/High School Cafeteria, on Avon Rd. from 3 to 6 p.m. The clinics are open to the public. Cost of a flu shot is $40; a pneumococcal shot costs $115. Those attending should bring their insurance cards. Insurance companies will be billed first and patients will be responsible for any balance remaining.

Livingston County Emergency Medical Services has received a grant from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation to put together a program to train and use EMS providers as coaches for older residents who have been discharged from an Emergency Department. The grant will eventually lead to a care coaching program which would be the first of its kind in the state. The idea of the program is to help and support the patient in managing their health and healthcare needs own their own.

Some new additions have been added to Geneseo’s Highland Park. Three new pieces of exercise equipment were recently installed as the result of an effort between several different groups. The first exercise station is a four-person leg press, The second is a combo lat pull-down and vertical press and the third and final station is a pendulum abs and dips station. They are located in different sections of the park.

The Soccer programs at Dansville believe in giving back to the community.  This year has been no exception.   Three of the standards that we try and uphold in our high school are “Courage, Honor, and Commitment.”

Every year the soccer teams pick a charity to raise money for based on a decision made by the coaches.  In the past we have raised money for the Cancer Society, Lupus foundation, and last year for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.  We have also raised the money and traveled to Nicaragua to build a house.  I am estimating that we have donated and raised over 15,000 dollars as a program in the last few years.  Each Charity has been chosen for a reason.

We had two students that graduated last year and are going to be in the military.  We wanted to honor them and show them that we are proud of the decisions they have made.

So, we picked the ( http://www.adaptivecanoeing.org/programs/warfighter-sports-events/)   Warfighter sports event that included racing outrigger canoes with the Wounded veterans that are recovering and getting involved in the sports world and this venue brings in warriors from all over the country to participate.11115857_911054962318648_7130565401826722889_o

Our students not only raised the money so that these servicemen and women could participate but they were actual participants themselves, racing with and against them.  On September 19, 50 students and coaches traveled to the Genesee Valley waterways to meet and race outrigger canoes for the day.  They met the veterans that the money raised is helping and got a chance to thank them for their service.  It was a fun filled and fulfilling day for the students and they were rewarded by heartfelt thanks and satisfaction of a job well done.  This is a link to the website where you can find out more information about the outrigger canoe racing and also if you wanted to volunteer time to the organization.
