News Update for Fri., Nov. 22, 2013

Chautauqua County now under Lake Effect Snow Warning, beginning Saturday at 12 Noon...

Have the snow shovels and scrapers ready... the National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning for Chautauqua County beginning at Noon today.  We'll have "very Wintry" weather combined with bone-chilling temperatures moving into the Jamestown-area as we move into the day Saturday.  The National Weather Service says the warning will be in effect until 7 p.m. Sunday.  There would also be some significant snowfall totals by Sunday night.  Forecaster Bill Hibbert in Buffalo says that's because this Clipper System may have an "upstream connection" with Lake Huron... which could create 6 to 7 inches along Lake Erie near Ripley.  Generally... Hibbert for the weekend before Thanksgiving... it's going to feel more like 'Christmas time.'  Hibbert says the culprit is a cold air mass covering much of the Middle and Eastern U-S... among others.

Dickey wins contested Third-Ward race...

Democrats will still have the majority on the Jamestown City Council the next two years... but, it will be a slim majority.  That after Republican Tamara Dickey edged out Democrat Regina Brackman in the Ward-3 race, 233-to-227.  The final 14 absentee and affidavit ballots that were in question after they were received by the Board of Elections were opened Friday morning... and, counted.  Republican County Elections Commissioner Brian Abram says Dickey picked up another 8 votes... while Brackman got 6.  Going into the count, Brackman has another six votes.  That gave Dickey her 6 vote margin at the end.  Only three votes separated the pair after election night back on Nov. 5.  The Board of Elections says Brackman ran only on the Democratic line, while Dickey’s vote breakout was 179 votes on the Republican line... and, 54 on the Conservative side.  Dickey's win closes the gap on the council to 5 Democrats, and 4 Republicans on the council.
