Horrigan says first six-months in office have been busier than expected, says a lot has been done, but, more challenges await...

First-term Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan says he's generally pleased with the progress made by his administration during his first six-months on the job.  However... the Bemus Point Republican admits life has been a bit busier than he first expected.  Horrigan says, though, he still felt "energized" by the work he sees being done on several fronts in the county.  One of the first was getting the County Legislature to approve the final sale of the County Home in Dunkirk.  While their was strong opposition right up to the final vote... Horrigan says many opponents have changed their view.  He says selling to VestraCare it was absolutely the "right move" at the right time.  Horrigan says the new, private group is bringing in Parkinson's, Cardiac, and other professional health care services is definately new investment in what had been provided there.  He says VestraCare is on target for completely taking over operations by the end of this year.  He adds there are a number of other issues his administration has been dealing with.  One is moving ahead with a North County Water District... and, a Chautauqua Lake Sewer System.  As for economic development... Horrigan says there are a number of positives... but, still several challenges... including finding someone to fill the two Carriage House facilities in the north county once they close.


No appeals filed regarding challenge of limited release of 1971 Attica Riot report...

No court appeals have been filed challenging limited release of an investigative report about the 1971 Attica prison riot.  Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sought disclosure of remaining Meyer Commission documents examining the nation's bloodiest prison rebellion and an alleged cover-up of police crimes in retaking it.  Altogether... 11 staff members and 32 inmates died -- all but four shot by state police and corrections officers.  The report's published volume found no intentional cover-up by prosecutors but poor evidence gathering by troopers investigating their colleagues.  Scheiderman's office says it will carefully comply with Justice Patrick NeMoyer's order to leave out grand jury testimony from remaining volumes with investigative details.
