Former Oswego County Sheriff Charles F. Nellis died Saturday morning at this home in Parish. Nellis served as Oswego County Sheriff from 1984 through 1998, retiring after four terms in office. Those who worked with him remember Nellis as honest and fair, with a great sense of humor and a compassionate side for children and those less fortunate.
Fajo EdwardsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ father says his family had no idea that Audrey Arnold, the woman convicted this year of causing severe injuries to his son in 2006, was released from the Oswego County jail earlier this month. Now Elroy Edwards says he wants to know why. Undersheriff Robert Lighthall says victim notification is not part of the parole boardÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s requirements for the local condition release program. He noted, too, that Arnold is only the third inmate to receive local conditional release in Oswego County since 2005.
