Brooks Hospital visitor parking lot upgrades planned for weekend
Officials at Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk are reminding the public that the second phase of paving improvements to the hospital campus are planned for the Labor Day weekend. According to the facility's Chief Operating Officer Jarrod Johnson, MBA, FACHE, resurfacing and re-striping of the patient and visitors' parking lot along Central Avenue started last weekend and should be completed shortly. Phase II of the project began Friday evening and will end today.
"We planned both phases of this project with minimal disruption to patient and visitor traffic," Mr. Johnson said. The official noted that the project will help improve the hospital campus and neighborhood.
This weekend, the side of the parking lot closest to the main entrance will be closed for repairs while the Outpatient side remains open. The public is invited to park in the front section of the employee parking lot, accessible via Central Avenue. Employees are being asked to park in the back area of the employee lot and other adjacent areas.

Candidate offers statement
Dr. Rudy Mueller, candidate for NYS Assembly, calls for the immediate investigation of state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and his alleged use of state taxpayer monies to settle sexual harassment claims against Assemblyman Vito Lopez.
Mueller states, "The people of New York deserve an honest and open government and rightly expect their elected leaders to lead by example. If Mr. Lopez committed these sexual acts against other women, then he should resign immediately. All people, especially women and children, should be respected with dignity and sexual abuse or harassment will not be tolerated. I understand Mr. Silver apologized for making a mistake by not referring Mr. Lopez to the Ethics Committee. We don't need another 'Penn State' type cover-up. If Mr. Silver used tax dollars and tried to protect a political colleague and friend, then his leadership position should be called into question."
