    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    After several delays, the Whirlpool Adventure Course will not open this year, and company officials are now pinning their hopes on next spring.

    “There’s two outstanding variance issues with the (Technical Standards Safety Authority) that we are continuing to move forward with, pursuing the variances,” said Lindsay DiCosimo, marketing and communications manager for WildPlay.

    “We are asking to have the exact same variances provided to the Whirlpool Adventure Course that they have granted to multiple parks in the past, including ones in Ontario, and ones out in British Columbia.”

    From the Buffalo News:

    A 30-year-old Vancouver man placed the winning $1.25 million bid for the former Hotel Niagara at an auction Tuesday.

    Jamil Kara said he plans to turn the 12-story building at Rainbow Boulevard and First Street downtown into a boutique hotel and condominiums.

    Kara, who was one of 10 qualified bidders, said that he has been in the condo and hotel business for about seven years and that his development group owns several high-rises in the British Columbia city.

    He said he also was involved in the Film Work Lofts, a recently completed project in Hamilton, Ont.
