Specchio said he had never seen anyone collapse in any of the many ceremonies he has overseen at Memorial Day and Veterans Day over the years, and couldn't understand why three people suddenly collapsed -- although theories abounded: too much heat, possibly dehydration, or anxiety, or a reaction to fumes such as carbon monoxide perhaps left behind by the fire trucks driven from the bays before the crowd gathered inside.In fact, the father of the boy with the injured jaw said a high level of carbon monoxide was found in the youngster's system at the hospital.She can be reached at [email protected], [email protected], or at (607) 923-0212. An honor guard from American Legion Post 676 fires off a round at the service. 12, 2017 -- Veterans were honored Saturday in an annual ceremony moved from the Schuyler County Courthouse lawn to the warmer confines of the Watkins Glen Fire Department, but it turned into a ceremony unlike any that organizer Tony Specchio -- or anyone else, it seemed -- had ever seen.As keynote speaker Assemblyman Phil Palmesano neared the end of his talk, First Responders jumped into action as two youngsters collapsed onto the concrete floor of the fire department bays -- where scores of area residents had congregated. On that date, he was pulled over while driving on South Valley Road in Steuben County. The United Methodist Church of Odessa and Catharine hosted its annual Holiday Bazaar, with crafts available for sale alongside the church pews and in side rooms and rooms behind the fellowship hall. A cafe offered pasta selections and meatball subs along with fried dough and cinnamon rolls.
Various crafts were for sale, and a raffle offered prizes including a quilt, themed baskets and a dollhouse kit.
During the course of the conspiracy, Scott Kennedy distributed large amounts of methamphetamine with and to people throughout the area of Schuyler, Chemung, and Steuben Counties. Hartford, who handled the case, said that between June 2012 and May 4, 2016, Mendez and Champion conspired with Scott Kennedy and others to manufacture and distribute meth.
Wendy Kennedy, said Hartford, also obtained quantities of methamphetamine from her brother, which he had manufactured, that she then distributed to her own customers.
"It's kind of a strange program here today," Specchio said when it resumed after the three patients had been transported from the scene.
Palmesano had the remaining attendees -- many had left during the break -- offer a silent prayer for the three, and commented on the sense of community exhibited by the First Responders in an instant after the collapses occurred. "When something bad happens, friends and family gather to help." He likened that to the way friends embrace the families of servicemen, and said he hopes that in the most dire of circumstances, that Gold Star families realized that "the sacrifices of their loved ones made a tremendous difference in our history." In the speeches leading to the injury break, the sacrifices of servicemen living and dead were extolled, with Schuyler County Legislature Chairman Dennis Fagan reading a fiery letter written to the National Football League by a fan disgusted with players taking a knee during the National Anthem.
