From the Lockport Journal:
Alice Putnam and her two lady friends from Niagara Falls just wanted to have lunch in Lewiston. And then ride up to Old Fort Niagara to visit Alice’s daughter who works in the gift shop there.
Joyce and Bill Price had walked from Lewiston to Youngstown with their daughter, Rachael, her boyfriend, Chaz Martenstein, and Millie, their baby granddaughter. The family caught the free shuttle in Youngstown and rode it home. Then they planned to have pizza for lunch without worrying about the calories after their six-mile walk.
An Ohio family found the Discover Niagara Shuttle an easy way to get to Old Fort Niagara so their kids could see the fort. “My birthday is coming up,” said Erin Martin of Hopewell, Ohio, traveling with her husband Lee and their two children, Emma, 13, and Charley, 12. “This is my present,” she said of her family’s vacation to the region.
A fun little story from the Buffalo News:
As a charter captain, I fish the Niagara River a lot – both above and below Niagara Falls.
One thought that goes through everyone’s mind who fishes this mighty river is: How many fish go over the falls … and survive?…
He fought the fish for a few minutes and as I netted it, we could see there was a green tag attached to the back of the fish… I…found out that the bass had been tagged during the Canadian Tire Lake Erie Classic Bass Tournament from October of 2015. According to the tournament director, they tagged and released it in Chippewa Creek – off the Upper Niagara River.
So what accounts for the fish ending up in the lower Niagara? There are two options. It either swam upriver into Lake Erie, took a right and made another right at the Welland Canal, then proceeded to swim the canal to Lake Ontario, take a right and then take another right into the Niagara River, again swimming upriver, or …
It took a short cut and dropped over the falls and ended up just north of Lewiston. I believe it’s the latter.
From the Niagara Gazette:
Area residents who frequently use the Robert Moses Parkway between Youngstown and Niagara Falls will find their driving habits changed for the next two months due to roadway work.
Starting at noon Tuesday, the parkway will be closed between the Village of Lewiston and Devil’s Hole State Park until mid-November.
From the Niagara Gazette:
The Parkway Preservation Committee, which is fighting to keep the north section of the Robert Moses Parkway open between Niagara Falls and Lewiston, will hold a brief meeting at 5:30 p.m. today [this was this past Monday] in the Lewiston village board room, 145 N. Fourth St., Lewiston.
Former Lewiston Mayor Richard Soluri said the meeting will be to answer some questions which have arisen following a recent Wild Ones meeting where a City of Niagara Falls-backed plan to turn the parkway into a bike and foot path was discussed.
Are they ever going to figure out what to do with that section of road?
