    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    A section of Victoria Avenue will undergo a $6.8-million road reconstruction and streetscaping.

    Niagara Falls city council awarded the contract to Rankin Construction during its recent meeting.

    The second of a proposed five-phase plan will include full road reconstruction and decorative streetscaping on Victoria Avenue from the limit of phase one, approximately 10 metres north/east of Centre Street and up to and including the intersection of Clark Avenue/Ellen Avenue.

    Ask Niagara Falls magician Greg Frewin how many awards he has won, and he might respond “Which year?”

    One of the most decorated illusionists in the industry has little left to prove at this point. His Ellen Avenue theatre is full of plaques, trophies and accolades.

    The only one left, it seemed, was Magician of the Year at the prestigious World Magic Awards.

    After last week, he can cross that one off the list, too.

    Hopefully I’ll be able to see the awards show, as well as the CBC special…

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office has been called in to investigate a blaze that destroyed the King David Bakery and Cafe early Monday morning on Centre Street, a short distance from Clifton Hill.

    Members of the Niagara Falls fire department received a call at about 12:50 a. m., of heavy smoke coming from the back of a building at 5061 Centre St., near Ellen Avenue.

    “The building was pretty involved by the time we arrived on scene,” said Ben Trendle, a fire prevention officer with the Niagara Falls Fire Department.

    “It appears that the cinder block walls gave way and the roof collapsed.”
