A Livingston County man, who thought he was internet chatting with a Batavia boy, is headed to prison on a child porn charge.
Dalton Wilke of Conesus has been sentenced to ten years behind bars for the Online Enticement of a Minor and Possession of Child Pornography. Prosecutors had said Wilke engaged in multiple sexually explicit online conversations with a person he thought was a 15-year-old boy, but who was in fact an undercover Batavia police detective.
Wilke was arrested when he arrived at a Batavia location where he had planned to meet the "boy."
They want their boy’s soccer in Pembroke.
Over 30 parents and students converged on the Pembroke School Board last night to lay out their case to get a boys varsity soccer team.
Pembroke has a girl’s soccer team.
Parent Tina Curtis says soccer is a lot less expensive than football:
"The (school) administration agrees with us that the funding of a boys soccer team is not substantial. The board now has all the facts and will hopefully be open minded. Boys soccer will be a huge benefit to the students here at Pembroke."
The Pembroke School Board will discuss the boy’s soccer issue at their March 22nd meeting.
The Batavia City School Board is inviting the public to tour VanDetta Stadium this weekend.

Whether or not Governor Cuomo should be allowed to receive Holy Communion was not a topic of conversation between the governor and state Catholic leaders.
Catholic bishops, including Archbishop Timothy Dolan, met with Cuomo yesterday and talked about a number of topics, but Dolan told reporters that the didn't want to bring up the communion issue with the governor yesterday:
"We Bishops are not about to shy away from any matters of faith and morals. What we are saying is that there is a time and place for everything."
A consultant for the Vatican court recently condemned Cuomo for living in "public concubinage" with his girlfriend, Food Network personality Sandra Lee, and demanded that Cuomo not be allowed to receive communion.
