    There are two new faces at the zoo.

    Safari Niagara staff recently welcomed two reticulated giraffes to the 150-acre nature park nestled in the heart of Stevensville.

    The giraffe yearlings, Moses and Ziphora, arrived from a zoological facility in the U.S., and are now enjoying their new enclosure at the zoo on Stevensville Road.

    “(Staff at the zoo) are very excited,” Andrea Bouw, a marketing manager for Safari Niagara, said.

    Connecting Fallsview, Victoria districts

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The city is looking at how the Fallsview and Victoria Centre districts could be better connected in the future.

    “We’re looking at traffic improvements and how we can make turning movements at the intersection of Ferry Street and Fallsview (Boulevard) safer for pedestrians to cross, and also to make the traffic movements easier for routing services like the Wego,” said Geoff Holman, the city’s director of municipal works.

    Holman said at first, the city was just looking at replacing a watermain in the area. But after receiving comments from businesses, municipal staff began to look at the condition of the road, traffic safety, and it “kind of evolved into a larger project.

    “We’ve examined a number of different alternatives to make improvements there, and one of the alternatives that we’re bringing forward will be to look at making it a three-legged intersection, so it’ll be like a T-intersection (involving Fallsview Boulevard, Ferry Street and Buchanan Avenue),” he said.

    Customers at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville were given an added treat that wasn’t on the menu on Tuesday.

    Buffett stopped by his namesake restaurant Tuesday.

    He spent about an hour at the Fallsview Boulevard restaurant, greeting staff and customers.

    He took to the stage around 5 p.m. and played a few signature tunes.
