The family of a now-deceased World War II veteran was presented with the military medals he earned during his service at a ceremony in North Tonawanda on Tuesday. 

North Tonawanda Mayor Robert Ortt says he'll make a decision soon on whether he will run for the State Senate seat being vacated by George Maziarz.  But there are already a couple of other candidates in the running.
