Horrigan names three-person administration team to lead County Home until home is turned over to new owner, or decision is made to keep it...

Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan has appointed a three-person management team to lead the County Home in the wake of the current administrator's resignation.  Horrigan today announced the appointments... which come following Tim Hellwig's decision to step down late last month.  Another factor was next Wednesday's pending vote on selling the County Home to VestraCare of Long Island.  Horrigan says Andrea Snyder will be Acting Administrator... and, oversee day-to-day operations.  He adds that the Acting Nursing Director will be RN Laura Hartinger.  She's been the Nursing Supervisor at the home since 1999.  Horrigan says Brian Reader from the TLC Health Network will be the Supervising Administrator beginning next Monday... a move he says fullfill's the state's requirement they have someone who's licensed to oversee the total operation for at least 12-hours a week.


Flood Warning cancelled; Wind Advisory now in effect...

A lack of high winds that were to push the thermometer up through today has led the National Weather Service to cancell our Flood Warning.  In addition... Forecaster Aaron Reynolds in Buffalo says the High Wind Warning that was in effect until early evening has been cancelled.  Reynolds says that's been replaced by a Wind Advisory that continues through 10 p.m. tomorrow.  Reynolds says a warmer air front moved through the area... but, the winds never moderated the air temperature as much as was expected.  He adds, though, that stronger winds will be moving in late tonight.
