Students injured in bus mishap

One Malone Central School District student was admitted to the Alice Hyde Medical Center Wednesday afternoon with injuries suffered when a school bus hit a bump, bouncing several students out of their seats.

Eleven students from all grade levels were on the bus when it hit “a pretty substantial bump” on Whitten Road near the intersection with Houndsville Road, district Business Administrator Tim Whipple said Wednesday. The bump, apparently the result of a frost heave, caused several students to be thrown from their seats, he said.

Three students were taken to the hospital by Malone and Constable emergency medical service crews. Two were treated and released, the third was admitted, hospital officials said.The extent and nature of the injuries were not released, but a hospital nursing supervisor said the admitted child was in stable condition Wednesday night.

Four other students on the bus were picked up at the mishap site by parents or guardians, and the remaining four continued on the bus to their homes, Whipple said.

Janet Lowther wanted to share her sister Amanda Sophia Bartlett's story in Ottawa with other families of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls who are gathered for a national roundtable this week.

"Amanda's memory [and where she could be] torments my family for closure," she said.

"My family and I should be gathering for weddings and special occasions, but we gather to search ditches, fields and bogs."

Instead, Lowther is where she is every day of the week — at work at the University College of the North in The Pas, Man.

Manitoba paid for 10 representatives to attend the gathering in Ottawa. Lowther wasn't chosen but was encouraged to attend on her own.

State police warn of scam callers posing as government, law enforcement officials

The New York State Police issued a warning Tuesday about scam callers posing as government officials and other law enforcement personnel in order to extract money and personal information.

In a news release, police said that the scammers will call or email the victims and inform them that enforcement action will be taken against them unless they pay a fine, either through a wire transfer or Green Dot card.

State police said that law enforcement will not contact members of the public by telephone or via email for any form of payment.

The impersonating scammers have reportedly threatened people receiving the calls they could be arrested or have their property searched for refusing.

Some victims who purchased items online also reported fraudulent use of their credit cards.
