SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Jamesville owner of a failed small airport project has pleaded guilty to bank fraud conspiracy charges. David Pizio faces a fine and a maximum of 30 years in prison over the scheme.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state has awarded $55 million in funding for a range of economic development projects at 20 CUNY campuses. The projects getting funding include $15 million for the school's Big Data Consortium for analytics and $10 million for a teaching health clinic in northern Queens.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State conservation officials are reminding New York campers that it's against the law to feed New York wildlife. This is the peak time of year for nuisance bear complaints. Officials say black bears typically avoid people but will take advantage of an available food source, so officials say campers should store food in their vehicle or hang it in a tree -- not their tent.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Funeral arrangements are pending for former Buffalo Braves player Dale Schlueter, who died yesterday of cancer at the age of 68 in Oregon. Schlueter spent 7 seasons in the NBA with 6 teams.
