More than half the people over 50 in Onondaga County might soon be spending as much as a full-time job caring for sick or invalid relatives. Elderly advocate groups released a study Tuesday that shows caregivers are in crisis.
Retired Onondaga County Sheriff's Supervisor Toby Shelley wants to be the first new face in the job in 20 years. He made the announcement Monday that he'll run for Sheriff in 2014, after an unsuccessful bid in 2010. That's when Kevin Walsh won his 5th term in the post. Walsh previously said he'll make a decision on running for reelection in January or February.
Nine people associated with seven corner stores in Syracuse are now in trouble after Syracuse Police uncovered they’re willing to buy purported stolen goods. The sting operation involved a six month investigation as informants were sent into stores with products such as baby formula, razor blades, energy drinks and electronics. Store clerks would buy the items, even though they were told the items were stolen. A raid was carried out Thursday. Police Chief Frank Fowler refers here to ”undercover informants” that helped to build a case against the stores.
