East Rochester cancels eighth grade trip due to students' behavior

A school trip to Washington, D.C. has been canceled and district leaders say it is because of a group of students who have acted out several times including on a recent trip to Nazareth College.

In a letter posted on the East Rochester Schools’ website, Superintendent Richard Stutzman says the district is cancelling this year's trip for eighth graders. In the letter, he says a group of eighth graders showed a total lack of respect during the field trip to Nazareth on March 14. He also says the same group has acted out during a school assembly and on another field trip last school year.

He also wants parents to know that some students represented East Rochester in a way that makes the district proud.

New York State Exposed: Silent killer

In News10NBC’s exclusive series New York State Exposed, we continue to look into how the state impacts your life, both good and bad. A law designed to protect us against carbon monoxide poisoning seems to missing something.

They call it “the silent killer” and it is a genuine public safety issue. Hundreds die each year in the U.S. from carbon monoxide poisoning. While the state of New York requires most homes to have a carbon monoxide detector, News10NBC discovered, at most every other place your family visits, there are no such requirements.

At the brand new Tom Wahl’s restaurant in Brighton, they’re cooking up meals their customers love. What those customers may not realize and can't see is that the restaurant is also looking out for their safety.  

In the backroom, near the washer, dryer and hot water heater sits a carbon monoxide detector.

Scouting for food

Did you find a bag on your door knob last Saturday? The Boys and Girls Scouts are hoping you will fill them up with canned goods and/or used clothing and put them out on your porch.

Scout troops will be back around starting at 9:00 a.m. Saturday to pick up your donations. It's expected that 100 tons of food and clothing will be collected this weekend and then sorted and distributed to area food pantries and goodwill stores. It's a perfect time for re-stocking pantries that haven't had big donations since the holidays.

If scouts did not hang empty bags on your door, you can take your donations to any TOPS store on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00p.m., you'll see scouts at the stores. Also, area Wendy’s Restaurants will accept donations through March 30.

Electrical issue caused deadly fire in Penfield

News10NBC has obtained new information involving a deadly fire in Penfield back in January. Investigators say they now know more about what happened just moments before the fire that killed nine-year-old Tyler Doohan and three other family members.

Tyler Doohan will forever be remembered as a hero. The East Rochester fourth grader died trying to rescue his grandfather from a fire at his home in Penfield. Penfield’s fire chief says an electrical issue caused that fire.

It was January 20 when nine-year-old Tyler Doohan was spending the night at his grandfather’s mobile home in Penfield. 

Fire officials say Tyler was the first to notice the fire while his family was sleeping. He helped five of them make it out alive. Even Tyler made it out, but went back inside to save his grandfather, Lewis Beach. That’s when fire officials say the young boy died. Steven Smith and Barbara Beach also died.
