The East Aurora Cross Country Teams had another successful week raising their ECIC dual meet records to 5-0 by defeating Maryvale 15-49 in the boys varsity, girls varsity, and junior varsity boys races.

The boys team captured the top 14 places and the EA lady harriers took the top 8 spots to move one step closer to their ECIC Division Team Championship.

At Beaver River, both teams captured second […]

PARKDALE PLAYGROUND CLOSED FOR TESTS

East Aurora School District officials have closed the Vidler's Village playground at Parkdale Elementary School until test results of the pressure treated wood are received in the coming weeks. Experts were scheduled to take soil samples from the playground area this week.

The closure of the Parkdale playground follows the town and village’s decision two weeks ago to shut down the Hamlin Outdoor Playground in Hamlin Park until test results are received within the next few weeks. Iroquois Central School officials shut down the playground at Marilla Primary School in August after tests showed the playground and soil around it contained arsenic […]

GLEED GIVEN A WEEK TO FILL TRAILER WITH JUNK

A 45-foot trailer now on Richard Gleed's South St. property must be filled with scrap and removed by 5 p.m. Wednesday and the empty returned for another load or he will face sentencing in Aurora Town Court on two counts of violating village code. Aurora Town Justice Douglas Marky imposed the deadline after a hearing Tuesday afternoon.

This week’s court-imposed deadline came after Justice Marky gave Gleed an extension on Wed., Oct. 6. The military veteran contended police ordered away a 45-foot commercial trailer he had rented to move a large portion of the junk earlier that day because it was blocking traffic. Another trailer was delivered Monday and placed on his property. Ross Harbison, the village’s […]

BLUE DEVILS FALL TO SPRINGVILLE

The East Aurora Varsity Blue Devils fell to Springville 14-6 after a late rally ended on an interception.

Mike Barranello’s 10 yard touchdown pass to Jon McGrath gave East Aurora new life with 1:25 left in the fourth quarter. The Blue Devils were flying high when, after the kicker Greg Davis recovered the ball at the 50-yard line after an outside kick. After a time out for a Springville injury, Barranello’s first pass after the injury time out […]

DISTRICT SAYS SALE OF WEST FALLS SCHOOL TO WALDORF MAKES SENSE

East Aurora School District officials last week told more than 50 people gathered for a public hearing that selling the West Falls School building makes sense.

Too much work would need to be put into the one-floor, 39,000-foot building in order to make it viable for the district to ever use again, School Superintendent Howard Smith said. And, with only 14 classrooms, the building would not be large enough for use as a public school, he said. The district wants to sell the building and approximately […]

Crews last week began preparations for the construction of a new light booth on the south end of the Roycroft Pavilion in Hamlin Park, the first phase of a much larger improvement project that the Aurora Players, the community theatre organization that uses the 100-year-old facility, hopes will improve their productions. “We’ve always had a concern about the light booth,” […]
