    From the Niagara Gazette:

    Destination Niagara USA, the renamed tourism bureau of Niagara County, has thrown financial support behind a local push to install wireless Internet equipment on Old Falls Street.

    The Wi-Fi pilot program, which would allow up to 4,000 simultaneous users to access the web on their telephones, laptops and tablets, is being driven by the Niagara Global Tourism Institute.

    Destination Niagara’s board of directors approved a $50,000 allocation for the initiative over the next two budget years last week, according to Andrea Czopp, the organization’s director of communications.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The director of communications for Niagara Casinos has resigned from his post to accept a position as vice president of external relations at Niagara College.

    “It’s not easy to leave a workplace you love…20 years of friendships and incredible work experiences,” Greg Medulun said Thursday.

    “But, I could not be more excited to join the Niagara College team under president Dr. Dan Patterson and help them build on the already phenomenal reputation they have.”

    Medulun joined Niagara Casinos in 1996 as a member of Casino Niagara’s opening team.

    This is an old article, but the flow of visitors certainly seemed to continue through the whole summer.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara’s two casinos are cashing in thanks to a weaker Canadian dollar and more Americans crossing the border.

    “Business was solid April through June,” said Greg Medulun, director of communications for Fallsview Casino Resort. “The casinos have experienced favourable conditions including a weaker loony that has translated into a spike in business.”

    In addition, he adds, fewer Canadians have been crossing the border, while more Americans have been coming our way.
