    From the St Catharines Standard:

    It wasn’t fatigue or exhaustion that caused Bernadette Miszk to break down as she approached the finish line at the Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon, Sunday.

    Nineteen-year-old daughter Julianne stood at the finish line, waiting to place a medal around her mother’s neck…

    More than 1,600 women participated in the half-marathon which wound its way along the Niagara River Parkway and passed by the falls twice before finishing at the Upper Rapids Boulevard parking lot.

    About 280 women completed the new 5k run, including Julianne and her twin sister, Emily.

    Niagara Parks Police Service officials report that about 6:30 p.m Sunday they were alerted to a man standing waist-high in the waters of the upper Niagara River about 150 to 200 feet from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls. He was holding on to a fallen tree branch.

    Members of the Niagara Parks Police Service, Niagara Regional Police Service, Niagara Falls, Ont., Fire Department and Niagara Emergency Medical Services responded to the bus parking lot adjacent to Table Rock Complex, at 6650 Niagara Parkway, to begin rescue efforts.

    From Niagara This Week:

    While the loonie may be being hit hard on currency markets, it will still be enough to pay for a lot of fun on Clifton Hill for Niagara Falls residents on Sunday.

    It’s that one day of the year when Niagara Falls residents can check out some of the museums and attractions on the city’s “Street of Fun” for just a buck. And it’s going to a worthy cause to boot. The Jan. 11 event is the annual Dollar Museum Day for Cystic Fibrosis, which takes place from 10 a.m to 5 p.m.
