Orleans County Shines the Light on Domestic Violence

Shine the Light on Domestic Violence

Join us in turning New York State purple! Join us in turning Orleans County purple!

Why purple? Purple is a symbol of courage, survival, honor and has come to symbolize the fight to end domestic violence. For several years domestic violence programs around the state have used purple in creative ways to raise awareness about the prevalence and harm of domestic violence.

The NYS Office for the Prevention of Domestic is building upon that effort to "Shine the Light on Domestic Violence" by turning the State purple for the month of October.

Locally in Orleans County, the Domestic Violence Task Force has coordinated an effort to light the top of the Orleans County Courthouse purple and tie purple ribbons around trees on the courthouse lawn.

Nationwide Prescription Medication Drop-Off Day A Success

WESTERN NEW YORK - The Drug Enforcement Administration is reporting that 3,280 lbs. of unneeded medications were safely disposed of Saturday as a result of 7 drug drops in Erie and Niagara Counties.

The DEA is anticipating that well over two tons of drugs will be safely incinerated at Coventa in Niagara Falls. Medications collected outside of Erie and Niagara County won't be tallied until Monday morning.

The 15 Western New York Collection sites were part of the DEA's national effort to rid our homes and communities of medications that can be misused and abused, particularly by teens.

The Drug Enforcement Administration wants you to hand over those old prescription pills, cough medicines, and other drugs that have been sitting in your medicine cabinet for years.

The DEA's Mark Caverly says it's a public health initiative amid concern about the growing misuse of prescription drugs, especially among kids 12 to 17 years old.

Act 2: From Finances to Fashion

MEDINA, N.Y. - For Laura Gardner a better quality of life meant giving up a longtime career as an accountant for the world of fashion.

"I don't think I'm going to make a million dollars, but it was also about lifestyle and being here in my community, closer to my family, being able to contribute in some way to what happens," said Gardner.

She opened "A Lily and a Sparrow" a few weeks ago on Main Street in downtown Medina.  Her new business venture gave her the chance to give up long, daily commutes to Buffalo in exchange for an opportunity to become more active in her hometown.

She's hoping her career change will not only inspire others to follow their dreams but stay local and shop local.
