    From Niagara This Week:

    Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment is expected to assume day-to-day operations at the two casinos in Niagara Falls June 11.

    The commercial gaming company, headquartered in Connecticut, will also operate the Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre, scheduled to open later this year.

    MGE was selected by Ontario Lottery and Gaming in September to be the new service provider following a procurement process.

    Escape: Niagara Falls, Canada

    From the Norwich (Connecticut) Bulletin:

    With the economy making the U.S. dollar worth almost a third more across our northern border, now is a great time to grab your passport and escape to Canada’s Niagara Region for a chance to view the beauty and power of Niagara Falls, the collective name for the three waterfalls on the Niagara River that drain Lake Erie into Lake Ontario.

    Straddling the international border between New York State and the province of Ontario, the Niagara Falls were formed during the last ice age as water from the newly formed Great Lakes made its way to the Atlantic Ocean approximately 25,000 to 21,000 years ago. Renowned for both their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power, Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls are a true wonder to see and well worth the time spent getting there.

    Media requests flow over falls photos

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It has been more than three decades since Russ Glasson last set eyes upon the mighty cataracts of Niagara.

    But during the past week, the iconic tourist attraction has figured prominently in the life of the semi-retired 75-year-old Weatherfield, Conn., resident.

    Last year, Glasson posted a small collection of 41-year-old photos showing a dried-up American Falls on a photo-sharing website.

    The photos, which were taken by his late father-in-law, eventually caught the attention of a reporter with London’s Daily Mail newspaper, who contacted Glasson to say he was interested in doing a story about the photos and posting the collection on the newspaper’s website.

    Links to the story made the rounds on social media web-sites, including Facebook and Twitter, and it wasn’t long before Glasson found himself fielding almost daily interview requests from local and national media outlets.

    On Monday, Glasson and the photos made an appearance on CNN during a segment hosted by news anchor Kyra Phillips.
