Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? It looks pretty good weather-wise after all the rain we’ve had lately. It will be good to dry out a little. Anyway, we have lots of activities going on around Wilson and the rain will not deter us from our appointed rounds of fun.
