    The battle over the rights of “transgender” and “cisgender” people continues to escalate in one of the most influential arenas: our nation’s schools. The Chicago Tribune reported this month that after a four-year battle, a school board in Palatine, Illinois, has granted transgender students “unrestricted access to locker rooms based on gender identity.” Just a few days later, CBS News Minnesota reported a mother had sued her local school district, claiming that it discriminated against her child for being transgender. These are just two of the most recent stories showing just how prevalent the transgender debate in schools has become....

    Less than six weeks after Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) signed into law New York’s so-called “Green Light Bill,” Assembly Bill (AB) 3675, which allows illegal aliens to apply for drivers’ licenses, a second county clerk has stepped forward to sue the state in an attempt to prevent the law from taking effect. On July 24, Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola (R) followed Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns (D) lead and filed suit. Recent polls show a clear majority of New Yorkers are against giving drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens. Rensselaer County Clerk Merola called the Green Light Law a “travesty,”...

His release sparked outrage from Pearl River residents who launched an effort to keep the convicted killer behind bars for life. LaBarbera and Robert McCain were both convicted back in the 1980s of brutally murdering 16-year-old Paula Bohovesky as she...

    It was a conspiracy and someone should pay. Attorney General Letitia James is the one to make sure it happens. As disturbing as it is to know that Buffalo police and the Catholic Church were engaged in a depraved and illegal policy to shield priests from criminal prosecution, it doesn’t really come as a surprise.... ....police in Buffalo went along, too. Cops here were under orders not to arrest Catholic priests but, instead, to report their crimes to the local bishop who could then continue the dirty work of covering it up. Whether any pedophiles were among those who were...

    Hardly any of the more than 100 Buffalo area priests implicated as child molesters spent so much as one day in jail. For years, most of their victims were too scared or embarrassed to make complaints. But Buffalo Police had marching orders not to arrest Catholic priests, according to former vice squad Detective Martin Harrington and other retired officers. Instead they alerted the bishop's office to any illegal activities. "The department's unwritten policy was that Catholic priests did not get arrested," said Harrington, who investigated vice crimes for 17 years and retired in 1995. "I never had any experience with...

Assemblyman Sean Ryan, meanwhile, took to Twitter to call out the NFTA for the decision, arguing that it was wrong for the state-funded entity...

    Cindi Eckis doesn’t have a smartphone, and she doesn’t want one. “It makes my life simpler,” the Cheektowaga retiree said. But sticking with her flip phone will make it tougher for her and other low-tech motorists to find a place to park along some streets of downtown Buffalo. A new parking policy being rolled out by city officials adds parking zones where the only way to pay to park is through the Buffalo Roam parking app. Blue "Pay by app only" signs went up earlier this week on Cobblestone District streets. "Pay from your phone," the signs read. "Download Buffalo...

    ESPN’s Monday Night Football Countdown team should probably stick to sports after angering an entire town over their choice of chicken wings. The crew was in Buffalo, N.Y., for the Buffalo Bills-New England Patriots matchup and decided to host a pre-game segment revolving around the city’s pride and joy — Buffalo wings. However, the segment, titled “What’s your sauce,” did not please native Buffalonians. Instead of featuring a local establishment for its “true Buffalo flavor,” the commentators had Applebee’s, which was sponsoring the show.

    Catholic Charities of Buffalo will no longer provide foster care and adoption services to new clients because a New York state law would force it to violate Catholic teachings on homosexuality and marriage. The organization, which serves people of need across Western New York, announced Thursday that it has become the latest Catholic Charities branch to halt adoption and foster services because of conflicts with state and local LGBT discrimination protections. The entity will continue to serve its existing foster families but will not accept new applications until its contract with Erie County Department of Social Services expires in March...
