 While the debate over the legality and morality of the military and CIA using drones continues in Washington, that type of mission is now slated for the 107th Air National Guard unit at the Niagara Falls airbase. And it has been up and flying for the past three years in Syracuse.  

 The 174th Attack Wing of the Air National guard gave up flying their F-16 jet fighters in 2009-10 in exchange for a mission which many say is now a big part of the future for the U.S. Air Force.

Hard-working country singer performs Saturday in Niagara Falls

With mounds of snow on the ground, it’s safe to say Niagara Falls will not be a hotbed of tourism this weekend.

There will be one notable caravan coming to town, however. And its leader can’t wait to visit the Cataract City.

Grammy Award-winning country artist Gretchen Wilson will visit Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel Saturday night. She’s been holed up in her Nashville-area studio working on a trio of new albums, and itching to get on the road.

Even if it’s snow-covered.

“We have been, for the last three months, we’ve been in the studio just recording like crazy. So, we are like more than ready to get out there,” Wilson said. “We’ve only had two shows this year so far, so we’re really looking forward to getting out there and doing what we love to do the most, and that’s the live show.”
