>Woman, 43, arrested in rifle incident

GREAT VALLEY -- A shooting incident early Sunday landed Connie R. Greene, 43, of North Authority Road, in Cattaraugus County Jail in lieu of $1,500 bail.

Greene, arrested at her home at about 6 a.m. by sheriff's deputies, is charged with second-degree menacing, second-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree harassment.

Officers said Greene argued with her daughter, Carlee R. Greene, 19, and while on the porch of her house pointed a rifle at her, ordered her off the property and fired into the air.
Greene will appear in Great Valley Town Court at later date.

>Prosecutors absent; Wilson case delayed

WILSON -- No one from the Niagara County district attorney's office showed up for Town Court on Tuesday night, forcing a postponement of arguments in the case of the two Wilson High School baseball coaches charged in the controversial hazing case.

Justice George R. Berger put off the case against William M. Atlas and Thomas J. Baia until Oct. 23. Berger told defense attorneys the court had received no notice from the prosecution about any intention not to attend. The coaches' lawyers said they have yet to receive any written response from the prosecution to motions the defense filed three weeks ago.

Robert J. Viola, Baia's lawyer, said he and Herbert L. Greenman, representing Atlas, have filed motions to dismiss the charges or, failing that, to obtain discovery material, including, as Viola put it, "specifics of the theory of the prosecution. . . . Our feeling is the fact pattern they are alleging doesn't rise to the level of the charges."

The coaches, charged in the wake of an April 17 incident on the team bus, face three counts each of misdemeanor child endangerment, while three of their players face misdemeanor hazing charges after felony sexual abuse charges were dropped. If convicted, the players automatically would receive youthful offender status.
