Actual gas prices may vary from Ni- agara Mohawk's forecast, depending on the weather and other factors, Ash said. And the pain won't be limited to residen- tial customers.

Marshall Gorilla mask, teen streaker the chase begins Principal runs after boy. Video exposes suspect as a 17-year-old student. By Scott Rapp Staff writer Some might call it monkey business, but Union Springs High School Principal Kim- berle Ward didn't find it amusing when she learned a male student had streaked down a hallway with nothing on but a gorilla mask Monday afternoon. In fact, Ward ran after the naked student after he slipped out of the high school near the south side parking lot. Ward, who runs three to five miles daily, chased the student down North Cayuga Street (Route 90) before finally losing sight of him near the village's retail district. Tuesday, state police in Aurelius arrested a 17-year-old student at the school and charged him with exposure of a person. The charge is a violation and punishable by up to 15 days in jail a fine. The teen also faces disciplinary action at the school. The student told state police that he had been dared by some friends to streak through the school and had done so as a prank, Sgt. Nancy Mazursaid Wednesday. District Superintendent Linda Rice said anyone who significantly violates the student code of conduct faces up to five days suspen- sion and possibly more severe punishment if the case goes to a hearing before her. "There's no way anyone in the district would consider this a Rice said. "We're here to teach children, and we do have high standards." Ward, who was unavailable for comment, told state police that she had learned that a male student was streaking in a hallway at the end of the school day Monday, Mazur said. She spotted the naked teen, sporting only the gorilla mask, swing out the reception-area door on the south side of the school as stu- dents were boarding buses to go home. The chase was on. After losing sight of the streaker, Ward then interviewed several students and watched a hallway surveillance camera video to help police in their investigation, said Rice, who praised the principal's efforts.
