This is the morning after a major storm that didn’t quite live up to expectations.
The storm that was to have dropped as much as 16-inches of snow on us, but instead coated us with 4 to 5 inches of snow, has now moved off to the east of us.
There are no weather watches or warnings this morning.
Schools are open this morning, roads are generally clear and traffic is moving.
The male half of the famous frolic in Farrall Park last summer will spend 30 days in the Genesee County Jail.
29-year-old Justin Amend, formerly of Oakfield, was sentenced in Batavia City Court yesterday on a charge of public lewdness.
He probably would have received only probation but he moved out of state before his sentencing.
A warrant was then issued for his arrest.
Amend admitted he had sex on a picnic table in Farrall Park with Suzanne Corona.
She was sentenced to probation for her role in the caper.
Three men who live in the West End Trailer Park in Batavia have been jailed for allegedly beating up on another man with a metal baseball bat.
Deputies say the original incident happened back in December.
The subject of the beating had to be treated at the hospital for facial and back injuries.
The trio just recently turned themselves in. They are:
Anthony Loverdi and Steven Maltese, both 41 and 42-year-old Paul Loverdi. All three were charged with a felony count of assault. They will be back in court later this month.
Two local elementary schools that each pursued a $50,000 grant from Pepsi have apparently been successful.
Batavia’s Robert Morris Elementary and Byron-Bergen Elementary finished in the top 10 of national voting.
Both schools plan to use the money to build new playgrounds.
Governor Cuomo's proposed budget makes the same assumptions on Indian tobacco sales as the current budget. Cuomo's budget projects the state will receive $130 million from taxing cigarette sales on reservations to non-Native Americans. The current budget ran into a mid-year deficit after Native American nations filed suit against the state for violating their sovereignty with the tax. The tobacco tax has yet to be enforced.
The Muszzammil Hassan murder trial continues in Buffalo. Hassan testified yesterday he "blacked out" when he killed his estranged wife.
Hassan took the stand to be cross-examined by prosecutors and said he didn't have much recollection of February 12th, 2009, when he repeatedly stabbed and then beheaded his wife Aasiya.
