In some traffic news yesterday, cars had to be temporarily rerouted in Canton from Route 68 to the Cowan road following reports of flooding. Traffic was flowing again on route 11 just before 5 pm. No accidents were reported during this time, although authorities were urging motorists to bypass the area. In Fine, however, a NYSARC bus went over a guardrail on state route 58 shortly after 3:30 in the afternoon. There were eight passengers aboard when the tires caught the edge of the road and the bus exited over the guardrail, approximately 100 feet of which was damaged. No one was hurt during the accident and thus far no tickets have been issued.


It will be next fall at the earliest before a costing analysis is performed for the police force in Brockville.

One of the people involved in the abduction of the two Amish girls appeared in Fowler town court yesterday for her preliminary hearing. Some details of the kidnapping were revealed as Nicole Vaisey’s case was ordered sent over to St Lawrence County Court. She and Stephen Howells II used a puppy to lure the Amish sisters into the vehicle, later chaining them up in a house. The girls were only released after the kidnappers became scared as reports spread on the internet of the girls’ abduction. Nicole Vaisey’s lawyer maintains that she was a slave to Howells. Vaisey was held without bail. Also of note, the charges have been set at kidnapping in the second degree so the victims will not have to testify.
