Routine traffic stop raises eyebrows

— The case was handled by an Oneida County prosecutor after DA Fitzpatrick had asked for a special prosecutor to step in.

One of the village’s most unusual retail outlets, Jo’s Li’l Cupcake, closed on Jan. 3.

Shirley and Mike Martin opened the specialty shop on Nov. 13, 2012, at 141 First St., the former location of Chris’s Flowers. Tiny cupcakes and Paul de Lima coffee were Jo’s big draws, but the Martins also sold treats for pet dogs. The shop was named after the couple’s pet terrier, Jo.

The Empire Sub Shop is now selling 65 varieties of delicious sandwiches, wings, salads, soups and fresh pastries at the former Burger King location at 508 Oswego St. The shop started delivering earlier this month all over the village and all the way up to Wetzel Road to the north, Pitcher Hill to the east and Galeville to the south.

For now the delivery is available nights only, but owners Bill Greene Jr., Tim Graber and Paul Atkins plan to become mobile during the daytime any day now.

Affiliated with the world-famous Oswego Sub Shop up in the Port City, the Empire Sub Shop stays open late every night and until 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday; empiresubshop.com.

For deliveries or pick-up, call 461-1233.
