Video: Staying safe in hot weather

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, video, weather

In case you haven't noticed, it's hot.

The current temperature is in the mid 90s with a heat index over 100 degrees.

An excessive heat warning is in effect until 7 p.m.

For the next 10 days, at least, there is no relief from the heat in sight, unless you consider 87 degrees instead of 90 to be relief.

This morning, we did a quick video with City of Batavia Fire Chief Jim Maxwell about staying safe in hot weather.

Video posted on YouTube apparently of John Parrinello arrest

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

This video was clearly shot at GCC during a basketball game. A State Trooper is seen talking with a white-haired gentleman who matches the description of John Parrinello being arrest.

If you get WHAM 13 out of Rochester, watch the 6 p.m. news for a report by Sean Carroll related to the video.

UPDATE: Click here for Sean's story.

Students' artistic abilities showcased at close of academic year

For a year-end project, I thought it would be cool to take some video and pictures of music- and arts-related activities -- respectively -- in the Genesee County schools.

The following video is 20 minutes long and divided into two parts (Youtube limits most users to about 10 minutes per video). It features concert footage from various schools in the county.

Mancuso home movies: Pre-war Batavia

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, Mancuso Family, video

I stumbled across this video on YouTube -- it appears to be old home movies, showing mostly their business ventures, from the Mancuso Family.  It appears to be all shot pre-war, 1941.
