Attica couple strives to set up teen center in village

post by Daniel Crofts in Attica, after-school programs, teens

"What's YOUR alternative?"

That's the question Wittnes Smith, of Attica, poses to young people in grades six through 12.

Since moving to the Village of Attica in 2006, Smith and his wife, Tressa, have noticed a couple things: there's not much for young people to do in Attica, and with too much free time on their hands, youths sometimes get involved in things they shouldn't.

So they are working to establish the Club ALT Teen Center in one of the three storefronts of Attica's historic Opera House, which is located at 16 Exchange St. in the village. The aim is to provide teens with alternatives to using alcohol and drugs, and to help them develop a "different outlook on life."

He says there is wide consensus that having a teen center here would be good.

The couple has been actively working on getting the club started for about a year. It would be open during after-school hours to sixth- through 12th-graders in Attica and surrounding areas, including Genesee County.

Village of Attica representatives, while unable to contribute to the project in an official capacity, have said that there are no legal or zoning issues that would prevent a teen center from operating.

post by Howard B. Owens in Attica, batavia, crime

A 40-year-old Attica man who was stopped on East Main Street, Batavia, just 12 days ago, admitted in Genesee County Court this morning that he was driving drunk at the time.

Roland J. Reed admitted to a felony count of driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation. He was charged under Leandra's Law because he reportedly had a 2-year-old and an 8-month-old in his car when he was stopped by police.

He was also charged at the time with unlawful possession of marijuana, refusal to take a breath test and moving from lane unsafely.

Reed also admitted to DWI convictions, one in Le Roy in 2009 and another in Monroe County in 2008.

He faces from one to four years in state prison.

Originally jailed on $25,000 bail, Reed will be released under supervision of Genesee County Justice as a condition of his plea.

In addition to prison time, Reed will be required to have an ignition interlock device for at least six months upon his release.

While out of jail awaiting sentencing, Reed will be undergoing treatment, according to his attorney, and looking for work. Judge Robert C. Noonan imposed a curfew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Alexander Knocks off Attica in OT

post by Chad Flint in Attica, alexander, Girl's Soccer, sports

Attica jumped out to an early lead thanks to a goal on a breakaway in the 1st half and looked to be on their way to a league victory over Alexander until they were issued a red card with 21 minutes left in the game and played a player down for the final portion of the game and allowed Alexander back into it.  Sophomore Midfielder Abby Shilvock scored the tying goal with 18 minutes left in the game and that score held up until overtime.

3 minutes into the first overtime Shilvock sent a ball to the front of the net and Junior Forward Julia Pettys headed the ball in the goal (her 6th of the season) to put Alexander on top 2-1.  That score held up for the remainder of overtime and snuck a victory from what had looked to be a loss midway through the 2nd half.

Alexander moves to 3-0-1 overall and 2-0 in the league while Attica falls to 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the league.  Alexander's next game is Tuesday night in Byron-Bergen at 6:30 against the Bees in what should be another great Genesee Region Game.
