The numbers are in, and it looks like the recent solar eclipse provided a major tourism boost to this area. It’s estimated the eclipse generated nearly $15 million in revenue for the Buffalo-Niagara region. Most of that spending was done on hotels and restaurants between April 5th and the 8th.

Seven parents have each filed a lawsuit against Sweet Angels Daycare and Preschool in Newfane, claiming negligence. The lawsuits claim that between 2022 and 2023, the children suffered severe personal injuries as a direct result of negligence, carelessness and recklessness.

In September, Victoria Stanton, 22, of Lockport was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Karon Anterline, 66, of Newfane was also charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child. Police say the charges came from a complaint about “possible abusive treatment” at Sweet Angels Daycare in Newfane. Following up on the complaint, investigators concluded that the suspects used “excessive force” with children at the daycare.

It seems New York State leads the charge in keeping their landline phones. A new survey by the Chamber of Commerce shows New York state leads the country in percentage of landline phones with The National Center of Health Statistics reporting that over 52 percent of New Yorkers say they still own a fixed line phone. New Jersey is a close second because, as the study concluded, the population in these states is a bit older than in the rest of the country, and seniors are the most likely to still keep a landline phone in their homes.
