LOUDON @BENNETTLOUDON PROVIDED BY ROCHESTER POLICE DEPARTMENT Jonathan O rtiz Anearby Native American nation began an education campaign opposing the the Lago Resort & Casino project Wednesday, saying the development would siphon jobs from workplaces in surrounding c ommunities. A statement released b y the Oneida Indian Nat ion said the $425 million project, proposed to be built in Tyre, Seneca County, does not fit with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s vision of gaming in New York state because it would be built in an area with already-established gaming facilities. “Lago will kill jobs and actually reduce gaming revenue for the state by cannibalizing existing fa- c ilities,” said Oneida Nation spokesman Michael McKeon in Wednesday’s release. “Moving jobs from one community to another a few exits up the Thruway is not what the Governor had in mind and will not r evitalize the Upstate economy.” Lago is one of several casino projects being considered for licensure by the state Gaming Commission; other casino projects are proposed for the Catskills and Schenectady, and all need the Commission’s final approval t o move forward. The Appellate Division of the state Supreme Court voided an environmental review of the proposed Lago site plan by the Tyre Town Board, ruling the town didn’t properly assess the site before g ranting approval. Tom Wilmot Jr., chairman of Wilmorite and a partner in the project, said last month that the project will “meet or exceed all environmental standards.” The board cleared a second environmental review for the project at the beginning o f October. The Oneida Indian Nation wants to stop oncoming competition by opposing Lago, said Lago spokesperson Steve Greenberg in a statement Wednesday. “It’s blatant self-interest at its worst,” h e said. “The process for selecting Lago and the other casinos was comprehensive and objective, and explicitly called for new non-Indian casinos to promote competition in the gaming industry, promote economic growth, boost economic develop- m ent, and create jobs and revenues,” he said. “Lago will do all of that for Seneca County and the Finger Lakes region and New York State.” STADDEO@Gannett .com Oneidas launch new offensive on Lago Casino project would siphon region’s jobs, they say SARAH TADDEO @SJTADDEO FILE PHOTO Arendering of the $425 million Lago Resort & Casino project in Tyre, Seneca County. New Yorkers have a new way to vent when t hey lose cellphone ser- v ice in “dead zones.” O f course, to do so, t hey’ll still need Wi-Fi or Internet service. A new website created by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer ( wirelessdeadzone), lets people rate cellphone service in dead zones on a scale from one to five. Schumer is promising to compare the actual exp erience of cellphone users with coverage maps p ublished by carriers such as Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint to check their accuracy. “ We hope and expect that this cache of data will provide ample evidence to compel the FCC to look into the coverage m aps,’’ Schumer said. “ And if the coverage maps are held under tighter scrutiny, wireless carriers will have to improve their service if t hey want to advertise. So t hat’s probably the big- g est benefit of all. If they a re forced to have good maps, they may be forced to improve their service.’’ Schumer told reporters Wednesday that he’s experienced dead zones repeatedly in three parts of the Hudson Valley — Westchester, Dutchess and Sullivan counties — “but it’s from one end of the state to the other.’’ Verizon Wireless, the n ation’s largest cell- phone carrier, defended its maps. “Verizon Wireless has always worked to ensure accuracy and transparency in communicating wireless coverage and limitations,’’ spokesman A ndrew Testa said in an email. S chumer said his office will collect complaints until 6 p.m. Nov. 11 and then submit the in- f ormation to the Federal Communications Commission. BTUMULTY@ G Cellphone service troubles?

CHUCK SCHUMER Cory Wells, 74, one of t hree principal of the ‘ 60s-formed band Three Dog Night, died Oct. 20 in Dunkirk, Chautauqua County, according to a statement released by the b and. “ It is with deep sadness and disbelief that I must report the passing of Cory Wells, my beloved band mate for over 45 years,” said Danny Hutton, among the group’s o ther key vocalists, along w ith Chuck Negron. “Cory was an incredible singer -- a great performer, he could sing anything,” Hutton added. T hough the cause of d eath wasn’t specified, the statement said that Wells had died “unexpect- edly,” and noted that he had been performing with the band through September, when he “dev eloped a problem with s evere back pain.” Three Dog Night became best known for its recordings of other songwriters’ material, and oft en of tunes that had pre- v iously been covered by other noted artists (though with less popular success). Its version of Randy Newman’s Mama Told Me (Not To Come) was a No. 1hit on the Bill- b oard Hot 100 in 1970. The g roup topped the chart again the following year, with perhaps its best- loved recording, of Hoyt Axton’s Joy To The World , a nd in 1972, with Black A nd White (David I. Arkin, Earl Robinson). The band also recorded songs by Harry Nilsson, Laura Nyro, Elton J ohn and Paul Williams, a nd enjoyed 21Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 overall. “Cory was like a brother in so many ways,” said H utton. “We had been together since 1965 and I am in shock at this sudden loss.” Wells was born Emil Lewandowski on Febru- a ry 2, 1941, to a single mother in Buffalo, according to the press release. He is survived by M ary, his wife of 50 years; daughters Coryann Wells and Dawn Marie Cussins ( William), and 5 grandchildren. Three Dog Night singer Cory Wells dies ELYSA GARDNER USA TODAY
