WNY families dedicate new war memorial


BUFFALO, NY - More than a year-and-a-half of hard work paid off on Saturday, and will continue to pay dividends for generations to come.

A brand new war memorial was dedicated to the 72 Western New York soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq since September 11, 2001. Many of their family members attended the dedication ceremony at Buffalo's Naval Park.

Ralph Wilson Remembered at Private Shea's Event


BUFFALO, NY - This Sunday, the Buffalo Bills will play a regular season game at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the first time since the death of the man it's named after. These past few days may have been all about the Bills' future ownership, but this weekend the focus is on the man who brought the team to Buffalo and left a permanent mark on this city.

Friday, about 300 invited guests including NFL owners, former players, family and close friends attended a tribute to Ralph Wilson's life and legacy at an event held at Shea's in downtown Buffalo. Jim Kelly and Bills Hall-of-Fame wide receiver Andre Reed were among the many who attended.

Traffic return to lower Main Street likely delayed


BUFFALO, NY - The "Cars Sharing Main Street" project in downtown Buffalo hit a road block on Friday.

The U.S. Department of Transportation just released the list of projects set to benefit from the latest round of grants and Buffalo did not make the cut.

"Everybody sees the great progress at the waterfront. You see the work starting on Niagara Street. You see the work that's occurring on Main Street. All of it is a direct result of federal funding," says Congressman Brian Higgins.

But $28 million in federal funding is still needed to open the rest of Main Street back up to cars.

Friday, the U.S. Transportation Secretary announced the latest recipients of $600 million in Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grants. The "Cars Sharing Main Street" project wasn't on the list.

Higgins says this means there could be delays.

Weekend events honor legacy of Ralph Wilson


BUFFALO, NY - One of the big draws at Sunday's game is going to be the tribute to late owner Ralph Wilson Jr. It's part of a weekend of remembrance events that started Friday night in downtown Buffalo.

The event at Shea's wasn't open to members of the media or the general public, but a who's who of luminaries from pro football, and of course the Bills, were in attendance.

They included ESPN's Chris Berman, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy and Russ Brandon, Bills team president and chief executive officer.
