    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Reservations for the 13th annual Sleep Cheap Charities Reap fundraiser can be made starting Friday at 8 a.m.

    Sleep Cheap will run for five nights again this year — from Nov. 13-17.

    During the event, many Niagara Falls hotels offer rooms to Niagara residents only at discounted prices. The proceeds help select local charities. To date, more than $1.5 million has been raised.

    Minimum donations for rooms remain the same as last year: $35 per night for a standard room, $45 for a Fallsview room, $65 for a whirlpool room, and $85 for a room with access to a waterpark.

    Participating hotels can be found at sleepcheapcharitiesreap.com.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara’s latest attempt at a local TV station has faded to black — at least for now.

    Niagara News TV president Frank Thibault said the St. Catharines-based station suspended operations Monday, putting 17 people out of work.

    “We’re trying to figure out a way to come back,” said Thibault, who added investors will meet Saturday to discuss a possible fall relaunch. “But we had to let the staff go … we don’t know for sure how this is going to play out.”
