Lockport Neighbors Help Thaw Mother Nature's Icy Grip

LOCKPORT, NY -- There are but two certainties about weather emergencies in Western New York.

The first is that Mother Nature will do as she pleases, at times to the peril of residents.

The second, is that despite what nature may throw at them, it does not quell neighbors helping neighbors, neither in spirit nor in deed.

Such was the case in Lockport, which was among the hardest hit communities in Niagara County to be affected by an ice storm just thee days before Christmas.

Adrienne Yarger and Len Mazerbo were just two of thousands of residents who were left without electricity, due to ice encased tree limbs falling on power lines.

Without a generator, they were left with no means to operate their sump pump, and water began rising in their basement shortly after the lights went out at 4am.

With the $26 million renovation of its main gaming floor nearly complete, officials at Seneca Niagara Casino are now focusing on a new presentation that will offer gaming and entertainment excitement to a new group of potential customers.

Starting Dec. 26, 2013, the balcony area overlooking the main gaming floor will open to customers 18 years of age and older. Dubbed “The Mezz,” the area will continue to offer a wide selection of the latest and most popular slot machine offerings, just as it has for most of the casino’s 11-year history. In order to accommodate younger guests, the area is being walled off so those entering and leaving the area will be required to show identification. No alcohol service will be provided in The Mezz.

2 The Outdoors: Natural, Historic Stella Niagara

LEWISTON, NY- "John Muir has said that in every walk in nature, one receives far more than he seeks, and I think that is especially true in a place like Stella Niagara."

It seems to be a constant in life, that when people come together for the common good, when they strive to rise above the mundane, great things become reality. That is exactly what is happening these days at Stella Niagara in Lewiston.

The Western New York Land Conservancy is currently in the process of raising funds to purchase 29 acres of pristine land along the lower Niagara River, with the intent to make it a preserve that will be open to the public.

But they couldn't even begin to do it without the support of the current owners, the Sisters of St. Francis. The sisters have been stewards of this beautiful property for over 100 years, but have recently been looking to sell the land.
