Syracuse’s successful program to remove lead from city homes will be shut down by year's end after being denied federal funding.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development did not approve the city's latest grant request. It is the first time they have denied such a request in almost 20 years.  Syracuse had received about $28 million in HUD grants, since 1995, to remove lead from more than 2,500 homes and apartments.  Mayor Stephanie Miner says the cut in funding means lead will not be removed from approximately 135 homes in Syracuse next year.

As the Syracuse University campus community bounces back from the St Valentine's Day "snow-massacre" 2014, winter continues to make itself at home on the SU hill.  

Tonight will be partly cloudy with a slight chance of flurries for CNY.  There is a risk of an additional inch or two of snow on Saturday.
