Carthage community honors football player who died from head injury

CARTHAGE, N.Y. (WSYR) — It’s been a tough week full of shock and sorrow over the loss of 14-year-old Tyler Christman, a Carthage junior varsity football player.

The Carthage Central School District announced it has canceled both the varsity and junior varsity football games against Indian River this week, as the community is still mourning the loss of Christman.

Assistant Fire Chief Cole Pacella has lived in Carthage his whole life. Throughout the years, he’s seen his community step up for anyone in a time of tragedy. Pacella didn’t know Christman personally, but knew his department had to show their support for the 14-year-old who tragically lost his life. “When something like this happens to somebody local,” he said, “you can almost bet you’ve been in the same room with them at one point or another.”

Outside of the Carthage Firehouse, a sign reads “Tyler strong—Comet pride.” Pacella said, “It’s the littlest thing we can do. Our profession is to help people, to be there for people, and sometimes it’s a little more of an invasive role.”

Carthage Fire Department, South James Street, Carthage

Just a short drive across the village, Caskinette Ford moved five of its red vehicles to the front of the dealership as another sign of support. “Most people here are Carthage Comets,” said Joe Archer with Caskinette Ford. “Everyone’s alumni. It’s a small community, but we’re very tight. You might be able to throw a rock over us, but you’ll never throw it through us.”

Outside of Carthage Central High School, there’s a sign with Tyler’s photo, his number 12, and a message from the district thanking those near and far for their outpouring love and support. As small of a community as Carthage is, neighbors said they will always come together for each other in times of tragedy. “Everybody comes together and puts their attention to where it should be focused,” Pacella said.

The Carthage Central School superintendent, school board president, athletic director, and football coach sent the following statements:

“The Carthage Central School District is deeply saddened by the sudden and tragic loss of freshman student-athlete Tyler Christman. Tyler was an outstanding student who was highly involved in the school community. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. We will continue to provide counseling support and services for our staff and students in the days and weeks ahead. Resources for families, students, and staff are posted on the District website.”

Superintendent Jennifer Premo

“On behalf of the Carthage Central School District Board of Education our sincere thoughts and prayers go to the Christman family for their tragic loss of Tyler. Our thoughts and prayers are also with our District coaches, students, and staff. This has saddened the entire community and beyond. We pray for peace and comfort for all.”

Garry Schwartz
School Board President

“Tyler was an amazing young athlete and participated on many of our athletic teams at Carthage Central. His ability to be an outstanding teammate and his infectious personality will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Words cannot describe how heartbroken we all are for the entire Christman family. Tyler, and all of the Chrstman’s have been a very big part of the Carthage Football family for years. Our sincerest condolences go out to their entire family.”

Jason Brown, Athletic Director

Brattleboro denounces racism aimed at new Black police chief

BRATTLEBORO, Vt (AP) — Officials denounced racism after a person on Facebook posted racist memes and comments aimed at Vermont’s first Black woman police chief. The Brattleboro Police Department said the racist comments were sent by a single person on Facebook who the department declined to identify, the Brattleboro Reformer reported.

Police Chief Norma Hardy, who was hired in July, spent 26 years with the police department of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. She was also the first Black woman to serve as chief of that department, the newspaper said.

Select Board Chairwoman Liz McLoughlin said that this incident showed how Brattleboro still has work to do to combat racism.

Daniel Quipp, another board member, stated his support for Hardy. “Chief Hardy has dedicated her life to public service and is an exceptionally qualified and experienced person to lead our police department,” he said. “I am really glad that’s she here.”

“She has really broad shoulders and will manage this and we will stand with her.”

Pittsfield man injured in shooting during armed home invasion

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Pittsfield police are looking into an armed home invasion where one person was shot on Mohawk Street in Pittsfield Wednesday night.

On Wednesday around 9:10 p.m., officers received a report of a ShotSpotter activation on Mohawk Street in Pittsfield. Several community members also called the department for reports of shots fired in the same area.

Officers were sent to the area and found a 47-year-old Pittsfield man suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim was taken to Berkshire Medical Center for serious injuries but is expected to be okay. The victim was later taken to Albany Medical Center for more treatment.

An early investigation by Pittsfield police found the shooting resulted from an armed home invasion. One of the people inside the home was shot. Witnesses told police there were allegedly three masked people that forced their way into the home where shots fired were reported.

A vehicle believe to be involved in the incident was towed and is now in custody of police. A K-9 unit investigating believes the suspects may have left the area on foot. Pittsfield police say the incident is not believed to be random.

Pittsfield Police were assisted by state Police, Lanesborough Police and Dalton Police. The incident will be investigated by the Pittsfield Police Department.

If you have any information on the shooting or armed home invasion, you are asked to contact the Pittsfield Police Detective Bureau at 413-448-9705, via text message by texting “PITTIP” and your message to 847411.

Massachusetts has over 30,000 breakthrough COVID cases

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Come Monday, it’s either vaccination or termination for those who work in state run hospitals and nursing homes. Security officers are among those who work at state hospitals who are being forced to make that decision. The lawsuit claims that the vaccine mandate goes against their constitutional rights.

In a newly filled lawsuit against Governor Kathy Hochul, Heath Commissioner Howard Zucker, and the New York State Health Department, 10 individual state hospital security officers are fighting for the option to have regular COVID tests instead of being mandated to get the vaccine. They say it’s unfair that teachers would have the option for regular testing, but they won’t.

“Students who are 12 years or younger can’t be vaccinated,” said Dennis Vacco. “Inherently, the population in schools is less vaccinated than the population in hospitals or in health care facilities. To say nothing of the fact that health care facilities are constructed to prevent the spread of illness within the facility.”

Former Chatham clerk-treasurer pleads guilty to defrauding village

CHATHAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Former Chatham clerk-treasurer, Barbara Henry, 59, of Chatham has pleaded guilty to attempted official misconduct. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says Henry unlawfully waived her own health insurance premiums at the town’s expense.

“Ms. Henry took advantage of her public position to have the taxpayers fully fund her insurance costs,” said DiNapoli. “This kind of corruption drives up costs and erodes the public trust.”

An investigation found that from April 2017 to August 2018, Henry allegedly used her position to unlawfully waive her own health insurance premiums, causing the village to pay Henry’s portion of health insurance. Henry was responsible for paying 50% of her health insurance while the village was responsible for the other 50%. She was employed by the village from late 2012 until she resigned in August of 2018. 

DiNapoli says Henry paid $3,586 in restitution for defrauding the village health insurance premiums and stealing from her other employer Cadmus Lifesharing Association, a nonprofit organization based out of Massachusetts. 

Henry was also ordered to pay a $250 fine in addition to the restitution.

This is the second criminal conviction of a village official. Former Police Chief Peter Volkmann was sentenced on July 19, 2021 to pay nearly $93,000 in restitution after his felony guilty plea to grand larceny in the fourth degree.
