    From the Niagara Gazette:

    The imprint left by the career of Paul Gromosiak can be found across the world, from the knowledge of tourists who have taken home his books to the advances of the city of Niagara Falls which might not have happened without him.

    On Friday morning he was honored for his life’s work and the powerful impact it has had on Niagara Falls and Niagara County. Following a ceremony and a series of proclamations from city, county and state officials, a plaque in his honor was unveiled in Heritage Park in the Falls.

    From the Buffalo News:

    The tethered steps that Nik Wallenda took on a mist-drenched, 2-inch steel cable across Niagara Falls more than two years ago gave the former honeymoon capital of the world a chance to reclaim a moment in the spotlight.

    But that 26-minute walk before a television audience of more than 10 million also catapulted the daredevil to global fame.

    Last year, he got the chance to walk untethered across a gorge near the Grand Canyon. Later this year, he plans to stride across the top of the Chicago skyline.

    Wallenda’s June 15, 2012, walk from the U.S. to the Canadian side of the falls was remembered Monday with the official unveiling of a monument on Goat Island in Niagara Falls State Park.

The province, through the Niagara Parks Commission, will match the amount.
