A familiar face has been named as the interim Superintendent for the Cassadaga Valley Central School District following the sudden resignation of former head Scott Smith.  Following a lengthy closed-door session... the school board last night announced Smith's resignation due to his "interactions" with another district employee.  Retired Sherman School Superintendent Tom Schmidt told our Dennis Webster he assumed the helm Wednesday... and, will run the district through the end of the school year.  Schmidt says he's "excited" to be working with the people at CVCS in helping with the transition to hiring a new, permanent superintendent -- hopefully by "next Spring or so."  Schmidt was named after the board had worked with Erie-2, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus BOCES Superintendent David O'Rourke.  In a statement following the executive session... the Cassadaga board indicated that the resignation followed the district's "consideration of circumstances" surrounding Smith's relationship with the unidentified employee.  Also during the meeting... the board approved an agreement between the district and High School Principal Dr. Tara DiDomenico granting "a request of leave."  School officials say current staff will be picking up DiDomenico's duties until her return.

The Buffalo Sabres have fired coach Ron Rolston and re-hired Ted Nolan to replace him.  Sabres owner Terry Pegula also announced Wednesday that he fired general manager Darcy Regier and hired Pat LaFontaine as president of hockey operations.  The Sabres are off to a 4-15-1 start, the worst in franchise history.  Buffalo edged Los Angeles 3-2 in a shootout Tuesday night to avoid tying the worst home start in NHL history.  Rolston was 19-26-6 in his brief tenure as Buffalo coach.  Regier had been the Sabres general manager since 1997.  Nolan was the Sabres coach from 1995-97.  LaFontaine starred for the Sabres from 1991-97 and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2003.  He started a job as senior executive for the NHL in October.
