    From Bullet News Niagara:

    Wirewalker Nik Wallenda headed back home to Florida Thursday night feeling good about his meeting with Niagara Parks Commission officials.

    Of course, Nik Wallenda is pretty much always feeling good. Through this long process of trying to get permission to walk on a tightrope across the Niagara Gorge near the Horseshoe Falls, Wallenda has maintained almost unflappable composure, resolve and optimism – the kind of characteristics one might expect from someone who makes his living on a three-inch steel cable.

    “It doesn’t do any good to be negative. I’ve said all along this is my dream and I’m just going to keep on going for it. People can say no, but it just makes me want to work harder.”

      “A daredevil will attempt to cross Niagara Falls on a tightrope for the first time in more than a century.

      Nik Wallenda — scion of the “Flying Wallendas” — has been given permission by the Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) to attempt the feat.

      The exact date of the stunt hasn’t been decided.

      “It will probably be towards the end of this summer. Probably September, is what we’re thinking,” Wallenda said during an interview with CBC News Network, shortly after the decision was made.”
