The York Central School District has a new superintendent. David Furletti will take over the top spot on July 3rd. School officials say Furletti–who is currently principal of the Central Square Middle School in Oswego County–is an excellent fit for the position. He’ll replace David DeLoria, who has been interim superintendent after Daniel Murray left to take a new job with Genesee Valley Educational Partnership. Furletti has been an educator since 1994 when he was a math teacher for Horseheads Central Schools.
It’s been a busy few days for the Mt Morris Fire department. On Friday crews were able to save a large barn on Mount Morris Geneseo Road that was directly in the path of a fire than had already burned three other smaller structures. Then, a few hours later in Saturday morning, firefighters were called to an apartment fire on Trumbull Street. That building–which had six units–has been condemned and 7 people are getting a hand from the red cross. Two dogs died in the fire. Investigators think the cause was accidental.
Police say a man from Dansville is facing two felony charges after he allegedly submitted fake gas receipts to his employer for reimbursement.

The Livingston county sheriffs office says that double-receipt scheme had been going on for almost a year—and that other charges are also pending. Arriaga was booked into Livingston County jail on $5,000 bond.
If you are traveling this summer with a baby on board, you already know how important it is to have your child properly secured in a car seat–but–you may NOT know the right way to put that care seat in. Child passenger safety technicians from State Police, Livingston County Sheriffs Office, local police departments and educators from the Cornell Cooperative Extension will be holding a series of car seat safety checks over the next few weeks to help make sure those seats are installed properly to work the way they’re designed to. The next of those checks will be June 24, 10 AM to 2 PM at Wentworth Motors in Dansville, with others scheduled between now and August.
