Niagara Falls City Council Approves Hamister Hotel Project

NIAGARA FALLS, NY - The Niagara Falls City Council has approved a $25 million hotel project by a 3-2 vote.

The proposal by developer Mark Hamister has been delayed after the city council majority cited concerns regarding funding and other issues.

"Niagara Falls gets a beginning, opportunity for a new re-development and revitalization," said Daniel Hamister, the senior vice president of The Hamister Group and Mark Hamister's son.

By breaking with a majority of the council which had refused to sign off on the development plans, Bob Anderson provides the needed third vote on the five member council for passage.

For months, council chair Glenn Choolokian, Sam Fruscione and Anderson solidified themselves against the project, claiming there were too many problems with it - discouraging some people trying to build the hotel.

Despite Adversity Lions Keep Moving Forward

LOCKPORT, N.Y.-Friday night Lockport stunned Orchard Park 33-27 on the Quakers home turf. It was the Quakers first loss at home in seven years.  

The Lions did it without starting quarterback Daniel Bronson. He suffered a broken collarbone in the week one win over Starpoint and is out for the season. However that doesn't mean he didn't have an influence on the game's outcome. Junior Tyler Fraass is now starting at quarterback and told Two On Your Side's Stu Boyar "I played quarterback on JV for two years and that kind of helped me out a little bit, same offense and then Danny was a mentor to me me all the time. He's always helping me out, even when he's injured he's always helping me out so I'm just learning from him. Certain mechanics and stuff like that if I made a mistake he'd tell me what I did wrong, what I need to work on and stuff like that not anything mean just in a positive way."
