Some of the best, worst of the week

Here are some of the best — and worst — of the week:


COLD STORAGE FREEZER — The ground is frozen, but that isn’t stopping construction for Fieldbrook Foods. The construction of the company’s warehouse on South Roberts Road has begun, with a target date to be finished by the fall. There had been a dilapidated Edgewood warehouse there. This new project is definitely an improvement for the city.

ONE THOUSAND POINTS — A round of applause to Silver Creek’s Brady Woleben. The Black Knight scored his 1,000 point mark Tuesday in a win against Salamanca. Basketball coach Rob Genco said Woleben has worked hard throughout his high school career. We wish him and the team the best as they continue to move toward the playoffs.

NEW BABY — Congratulations goes out to Valerie Lamb and John Patterson. The Westfield couple welcomed their fourth child, Izabell Hope Elizabeth, who was the first baby born in Brooks Hospital for 2019. Please note that starting Jan. 1, Brooks is no longer announcing births for families. People who wish to have their child’s birth announcement published in the OBSERVER can send information to editorial@observertoday.com free of charge. For a $20 charge, a color photo can run as well. A phone number is required.


SAFE ACT — This week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo noted that he wants to extend the background check waiting period for firearm purchases from three days to 10 days. It’s just one of several bills relating to firearm regulations that Cuomo says he’ll ask for the state legislature to pass within the first 100 days of the 2019 season. If you’re going to update the state’s gun laws, then fix the SAFE Act, especially the seven round limitation. The courts have already found that part to be unconstitutional. That limitation needs to be removed. There’s no point in having legislation that is unconstitutional.
