Free Concert Series Lineup Announced

NORTH TONAWANDA, NY-The lineup is out for one of WNY's few remaining free concert series, the "Cornerstone's Niagara River Rocks" at Gratwick Riverside Park in North Tonawanda.

Mayor Robert Ortt and representatives from the Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union announced Primus, The Tea Party and Rusted Root will be the featured bands this summer.

The concerts themselves are free, however, there will be a $5 charge for parking. No food, backpacks or coolers will be allowed at the park. Food and drinks will be available for purchase if desired.

"When I took office, I pledged to work to bring back major bands and musical acts to North Tonawanda," said Mayor Ortt. "Last year's show was such a huge success and we expect these three shows to bring thousands of concert goers to one of the most beautiful venues along the Niagara River, Gratwick Riverside Park."

Higgins: Alleged Train Terror Plot Outlines Danger, And Police Resolve

TORONTO (AP) - Two men arrested on Monday and charged with plotting a terrorist attack against a Canadian passenger train with support from al-Qaida elements in Iran, appeared in court on Tuesday.

In a brief court appearance in Montreal, a bearded Chiheb Esseghaier declined to be represented by a court-appointed lawyer. He made a brief statement in French in which he called the allegations against him unfair.

Raed Jaser appeared in court in Toronto and did not enter a plea, and is due to return on May 23rd.  Jaser had a long beard and wore a black shirt with no tie, and was accompanied by his parents and brother. The court granted a request by his lawyer, John Norris, for a publication ban on future evidence and testimony

The case has raised questions about Shiite-led Iran's murky relationship with the predominantly Sunni Arab terrorist network. 

Kindergarten Could be Eliminated

WHEATFIELD, N.Y. -- The Niagara-Wheatfield School District is facing a $1 million budget shortfall even if voters approve a tax increase next month.

One option to close that gap includes cutting the kindergarten program, and that did not sit well with parents when it was announced by the school board last week.

As Elizabeth Gervase talks about her kindergarten students, her eyes light up. After 23 years of teaching at Errick Road Elementary, she hasn't lost any passion.

"Oh, I love kindergarten so much," she says. "They come in, many of them not even able to hold a pencil, unable to write, to read, and they leave me being readers and writers."

Superintendent James Knowles told 2 On Your Side, "we're not trying to scare people, we're looking at what we need to do to close a $1 million dollar gap."

Help 4-H Club Go On Trip

The Local Blue Ribbon Riders 4-H Club, a youth equestrian group, is having trouble trying to raise money for a trip.

The group has been invited to compete in the Pony Finals in Lexington, Kentucky, one of the largest youth events their sport has to offer.

But, in order to go, one mother said they will need help finding a place willing to host these fundraisers.

"We've been working on this for two years," said Sonja Marchetti. "Last year, we weren't able to earn enough money. We were hoping this year with having two hot dog sales, plus we are having a horse show itself to achieve enough funds to go. I mean it's every child's dream to go to the Pony Finals."
