City Leaders Say Election Will Help Niagara Falls Improve

NIAGARA FALLS, NY - There are some big political changes in parts of Western New York after Election Night and one of those communities, getting a makeover is Niagara Falls.

So often when 2 On Your Side has been reporting on Niagara Falls issues, they stem back to the dysfunction with city council. The biggest example of this was the Hamister Hotel project earlier this year, which was approved, after months of bickering.

Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster thinks the addition of one new council member, Andrew Touma, will be a good thing for the city.

Touma will be the new face on council in the new term. As a teacher, Touma was the leading vote getter with 4,208 votes Tuesday night.

He replaces Sam Fruscione who lost on the independent and conservative lines. In the past, the mayor says that council chair Glenn Choolokian and members Robert Anderson and Fruscione slowed projects down.

Niagara Falls Man Sentenced for Shooting 2-Year-Old

LOCKPORT, NY-- A Niagara Falls man will spend the next 10 years in prison, for firing the shot that hit a two-year-old girl in the face.

Willie Scott was sentenced Monday for first degree attempted assault.

He admitted in September to firing several shots outside of a Niagara Falls store a year ago.

One of those shots hit the toddler as she sat in a car.

The girl's mother said in court and says the girl is doing well, but still has that bullet in her jaw.

Return Of The Adirondack Moose

For an animal that's not only quite large, but also an iconic symbol of the North, moose in the Adirondack Mountains can be very difficult to find.

Part of that has to do with the vast range of the area, over 6 million acres, but most of the blame for their scarcity falls on man.

Moose were once abundant in the region, but the forests critical to their survival were decimated in the 1800s, and unregulated hunting completed the devastation.
