LOCAL NEWS BRIEFS

>Areas to the south face lake-effect snow

After a respite Tuesday, lake-effect snows are expected to resume their assault on the Southtowns and Southern Tier.

A lake-effect snow advisory for those areas kicked in at 7 p.m. Tuesday and remains until 4 p.m. today.

General snowfall totals will range from 3 to 5 inches, with localized totals ranging from 6 to 10 inches, according to meteorologist Tony Ansuini of the National Weather Service in Buffalo. That's on top of up to 2 feet of snow reported by Monday night at some locations in Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties.

Snowfall totals reported Tuesday for central and southern Erie County ranged from 5 inches in West Seneca to more than 10 in Hamburg.

Only scattered snow showers are expected today in the metro area.

Throughout the region, today's high temperatures will be in the 20s.

>Edwards appoints two to high-ranking posts

MAYVILLE -- Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards has appointed local residents to two high-ranking county positions.

David Sanctuary is the new Chautauqua County Airport manager. A Jamestown native with an extensive background in flight and air management, Sanctuary will also head operations at Dunkirk Airport. Sanctuary began his career as a pilot flying out of Jamestown about 40 years and also held an ownership interest in an airline.
Sanctuary said he is "very excited" about the opportunity and wants to help return the airport to its glory days. After peaking at about 75,000 passengers a year, the number has dropped to about 10,000.

Edwards also announced the appointment of Mary Ann Spanos as the new director of the Office for the Aging. Spanos served as the director of rehabilitation at The Waters of Dunkirk and was adjunct professor at Jamestown Community College.
