Joe's Deli won the Chairman's Choice award in 2008 for their Muffaletta Sandwich. We see why. And their Mediterranean Hummus Wrap won a Healthy Choice award today. Great, fresh food

CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Cheektowaga man has pleaded guilty to injuring a 5-month-old child by violently shaking the infant.

On Friday, 25-year-old James Brown pleaded guilty to reckless assault of a child. Prosecutors say last December, Brown shook the infant for at least 10 minutes while he was babysitting, causing the child to suffer bleeding to the brain, bleeding to both eyes, and knocking the baby unconscious.

Brown will be sentenced in May and faces a maximum prison term of seven years. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
