A 4-year-old Hungarian Pointer may soon be patrolling Paper Mill Island with her master to discourage resident birds from leaving waste deposits on the property. While Paper Mill Island has a no pet policy, village officials hope the presence of the dog will discourage birds from landing on the island.

“I’ve heard that if a dog is in an area often enough, the birds will shy away from the area,” said Mayor Joseph Saraceni. “Pointers are awesome at handling the birds,” he added.

Village Engineer Tim Baker joked, “We can certainly look into deputizing the dog.”

BPD Lieutenant honored
Lt. Thomas Leroy of the Baldwinsville Police Department has been selected by the Baldwinsville Rotary Club to receive the Pride of Workmanship award.

“I’m pleased that (Leroy) will be recognized,” said Police Chief Michael Lefanchek.

A dinner will be held Sept. 27 at Tabatha’s Family Tree Restaurant on Route 370 in recognition of the award.

Familiar face promotes buckling up
A commercial featuring Baldwinsville Police Chief Michael Lefanchek will air on Your News Now (channel 10). With a focus on buckling up, the commercial features officers throughout central New York touting their years of experience and how they have never seen a fatality with anyone who has used a seatbelt.
