The 9th annual Magic on Main event was on August 16th and it was a success! The weather cooperated this year and it was well attended with an estimated crowd of over a thousand people, who enjoyed live music, food from local eateries, magicians and classic vehicles from car clubs. Here are just a few pictures as the event started. ... See MoreSee Less

On August 16, 2019 at approximately 12:53 am, officers from the Homer Police Department arrested a 39 year old male from Homer after he was involved in a physical domestic at his residence with the 38 year old female victim. The victim reported to police that during the incident the defendant obstructed her breathing by choking her; took a cell phone away from her, preventing her from calling the police for help and smashed it against the floor; threatened to kill her with a screwdriver and when she was able to exit the residence, he physically dragged her back inside while she was holding the child and then prevented her from leaving. Officers arrested the defendant at the scene without an incident.

The defendant was charged with the class A misdemeanors of Menacing in the 2nd degree, Criminal Obstruction of Breathing, Criminal Mischief in the 4th degree, Unlawful Imprisonment, Endangering the Welfare of a Child and the violation of Harassment in the 2nd degree. The defendant was arraigned in the Town of Homer Court, and was remanded to the Cortland County Jail on $1,500.00 cash / $3,000.00 bond. He is scheduled to reappear in court on August 20, 2019 at 4pm.

This investigation is continuing and more charges are pending. Homer Officers were assisted by officers from the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office and troopers from the New York State Police.

Thanks Homer PD for the help Saturday morning.

Someone needs to take over the old Natoli's market. After the motel was torn down, the Route 11 corridor looks like a ghost town :/
