The OnCenter parking lot in Downtown Syracuse could become the site of a $150 million development with an 8 story office building plus 2 additional towers.  The Pemco Group is thinking that one tower would be reserved for offices, and student housing in the other tower.

Veterans and their families gathered at the War Memorial Tuesday for a celebration and honoring of their service. Carol Anne Wood is the grandmother of a woman currently serving in the U-S Army.  She would write poems for her granddaughter and the platoon, and quickly became known as the platoon grandmother.

Unfortunately not all service members are able to return to their families and communities. A special table was set up to honor those Missing in Action or who are Prisoners of War.
