Yesterday, ZZ Top announced the cancellation of performances for the next few weeks due to longtime co-vocalist and guitarist Dusty Hill’s injury. Hill slipped and fell on his hip Tuesday night on his tour bus, sustaining an injury that has required “immediate attention.”

Among the cancelled performances is the outdoor concert at Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino, this Friday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m.

The show will continue on with Jeff Beck, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame who was ranked No. 5 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of all-time greatest guitarists. Opening act, Tyler Bryant, will also perform.  Bryant, still at the young age of 23, has dazzled many of the music industry’s greats since his early teenage years, touring with or opening for acts such as Aerosmith, Heart, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others. The show will start at 7 p.m. as originally planned.

25 cats seized from Niagara County homes


NIAGARA COUNTY, NY--- The Niagara County SPCA is investigating two separate incidents of animal hoarding, and now it is in need of help.

SPCA officials removed one cat from a home in Lockport on Wednesday. Niagara County SPCA Director Amy Lewis says the home was filled with items and they were not able to capture all of the cats.

"Her situation is a very typical hoarding case. Not just animals, but possessions. I was shocked. I've been doing this for nine years and this is probably the worst hoarding case that I've seen," says Lewis.

Traps have been set to try and catch the remaining 50 cats. The resident in this home has been hospitalized and likely will not face charges.

Village of Wilson votes against dissolution.


WILSON, NY- The Village of Wilson in Niagara County voted against dissolving the village Tuesday night in a 222 to 209 vote.

"I knew it was gonna be close, it was gonna be very close. And that's what it came out to be," Wilson Mayor Bernie Leiker said.

Proponents of dissolution saw it as a way to cut costs and make the government more efficient. The village has a mayor, two trustees, six full time employees and two part-time employees.

"What I wanted was the democratic process," Leiker said. "I will support what the people want."

Because the vote to dissolve failed, it can not be brought up again for four years. Had the vote passed, the village would have become part of the Town of Wilson.

Niagara Co. Sheriff's Office dedicates K9 memorial


LOCKPORT, NY - The Niagara County Sheriff's Office took time Tuesday morning to remember some of its four-legged crime fighters.

The Sheriff's Office dedicated a new K-9 memorial to honor dogs that have been killed in the line of duty.

One of the most recent service dogs killed was Rocky who died in 2011 during a search for a potential burglar in Niagara Falls. His death led to legislation that now makes it a felony to kill a police service animal in the state of New York.
