Cuomo to deliver casino funds to 3 western NY cities

Posted: Updated:

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo will visit the three western New York cities with casinos to deliver gambling revenue funds that were withheld by the Seneca Nation of Indians during a 4-year dispute with the state.

Cuomo's first stop Wednesday morning will be the Seneca Niagara casino in the city of Niagara Falls. Afterward he'll head to Buffalo, followed by a trip farther south to Salamanca, near the Pennsylvania border.

Seneca Nation President Barry Snyder Sr. will join Cuomo at each stop as the governor hands over the nearly $140 million the tribe owes the three cities. Niagara Falls will receive the biggest check: $89 million.

Cuomo and Snyder announced last month that the Senecas would resume sharing the tribe's casino revenues with the state. The tribe suspended the payments in 2009.

    Dunkin' Donuts cashiers will try to 'upsell' you in the afternoon

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.

    Are tablets already on their way out?

    Four years ago, tablet owners starting raving about the market's newest piece of mobile technology. Last quarter, Apple iPad sales fell by 9 percent. Still, forecasting the death of the tablet seems premature and incorrect. More likely, all our devices are cross-breeding and evolving until all our calling, emailing, texting, messaging, Internetting, TV watching, all our communication happens on one mobile gadget.
