Little Valley woman accused of bilking over $27,000 in child care benefits

A welfare fraud investigation in Cattaraugus County has led to felony charges being placed against a Little Valley woman. The Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office arrested 33-year-old Nicole Lamberton on Monday after an investigation determined that she fraudulently received more than $27,000 in child care benefits by allegedly concealing and failing to report income in the household. The results of the investigation stem from a complaint filed in 2018. Lamberton is facing Class D felony charges of grand larceny in the 3rd degree and welfare fraud in the 3rd degree, and two Class E felony counts of offering a false instrument for filing in the 1st degree. Lamberton was taken into custody at the Cattaraugus County Department of Social Services without incident. She was processed and released with an appearance ticket.

Buffalo’s own Rootie’s Famous Gourmet Blue Cheese has been MIA from supermarkets for months.

Some have even (GASP) switched blue cheese brands just to make sure their wings aren’t completely naked this summer. There has even been some speculation out there that the Rootie’s company might not be doing well financially (a heartbreaking fact for many local businesses after the pandemic), leaving many to wonder if they’d ever get their hands on their precious Rootie’s blue cheese again.

Large Boa Constrictor Found on Lawn of New York State Family

Snakes are out all across New York state this time of year. They're a part of nature. But while some other recent snake sightings are species commonly found in New York and surrounding states, this particular case wasn't.
