With an abundance of maple trees in Central New York, it is worth keeping an eye out for the Asian Longhorned Beetle. This little bug is fairly distinct with its size and color pattern. It is a 2-inch bug that has black and white coloring on their antennas. They also have white spots on their shells.

Revisiting Dusty Hill’s Last ZZ Top Show

ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill, who died on Tuesday at the age of 72, rocked triumphantly until the very end. The bearded four-stringer, who formed the Texas blues-rock trio with singer/guitarist Billy Gibbons and drummer Frank Beard in 1969, played his last show with the band on July 18 at the Iroquois Amphitheater in Louisville, Ky. Hill leaned against part of his bass rig during the performance — evidence of a “hip issue” that sidelined him a few days later — but otherwise he was in fine form, anchoring the band’s swampy low end and delivering spirited vocals during a show-closing rendition of one of the band's signature hits, "Tush."

July 29, 1966, Marked New Eras for Bob Dylan, the Beatles and Cream

On July 29, 1966, the personal and professional trajectories of three of rock's most notable names shifted — some for the worse, some for the better. The day spelled misfortune for two of them: Bob Dylan, who crashed his motorcycle just outside Woodstock, N.Y., and subsequently disappeared from the public eye for several months, and John Lennon, whose "more popular than Jesus" comment landed in the U.S. Both proved to be events that inevitably altered the course of the artists' careers.

Loose Horse In Laurens Begs Question: What To Do About Lost Pets?

We don't know how a horse in the Town of Laurens got out (pictured above) but it was discovered fortunately by an area resident who contacted New York State Police. Good news: the equine was reunited with its owner.

Let’s Talk About Lip Smackin’ Chicken Wings and Your Favorite on ‘National Chicken Wing Day’

Do you like hot wings or any wings at all? I'm a fan and like all kinds of wings. It's really a mood thing for me but if really pressed to reveal my favorite kind, the best wings I have ever had were at Jay's Place in Oneonta, NY and they were crispy wings with a garlic and herb blend which is lip smackin' DELICIOUS! On the Jay's Place current menu, they list "Cajun Garlic" chicken wings but also say that any of their chicken wings are currently unavailable. I wonder if that is related to the chicken wing shortage we reported back in April? Perhaps it's still going on?
