Police say officers found several baggies containing suspected cocaine, crack, and fentanyl, along with a large amount of cash.


Four counties in Western New York are getting federal funding to help with responses to severe weather. Senator Chuck Schumer announced an investment of more than $1.6 million dollars for Erie, Niagara, Cattaraugus, and Chautauqua counties yesterday. The money will be used to help local officials develop emergency response plans ahead of major snowstorms. Schumer also announced $39 million in federal funding for upgrades to the Grand Island Bridge.

If you happen to go into Erie County, all libraries there are collecting eclipse glasses now that the eclipse is over. The glasses will be donated to schools in Latin America for the annular eclipse in October. The glasses can be dropped off at bins inside of Erie County Libraries.
