A concerned viewer wanted 2 on your side to get answers about several streetlights that are out on a town of Hamburg road.


HAMBURG, NY - A concerned viewer wanted 2 On Your Side to get answers about several streetlights that are out on a Town of Hamburg road. People driving home after work will tell you a stretch of road on Jeffrey Boulevard, where deer have been known to cross, can get hairy.

Driver Natasha Hawkins told us, "It's really hard to see. Some people will be walking to work, coming off a bus and you can hardly see them at all unless they have reflectors."

That's because when the sun goes down there's a section of road that goes dark.

"It's a safety hazard because you can't see and we get some people walking on this road too, they go to jobs and they're walking up and down the street, so it's really hard to see anything on this road with the lights off."

The King lives! “Blue Suede Shoes: The King, The Colonel, The Memories” is set to take center stage at the historic Grand Theatre in nearby London, Ontario, Oct. 14 through Nov. 1.

With over 40 songs and dozens of costume changes, the show details the days when Elvis was the king of both stage and screen. Elvis will be in the building!
