    From Niagara This Week:

    When you’re 103-years-old, a little surgery is inevitable.

    In the case of the Whirlpool Aero Car, one of the oldest tourist attractions in Niagara Falls, it’ll be a major upgrade to the support ropes that have brought millions of people across the Niagara Gorge.

    Though just one of the six support ropes needed to be replaced, work has been going on since January to replace all of them.

    Former trainer blasts Marineland conditions

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Leaving Marineland broke Phil Demers’ heart. But he had to do it.

    The 34-year-old animal trainer left Marineland after 12 years, and has gone public with allegations of deplorable water conditions and mistreatment of animals by his former employer.

    Demers said he made the decision to leave in May and then go public because the park’s owner, John Holer, wasn’t making changes he thought were necessary.

    “All of my efforts in house proved futile,” Demers said Wednesday. “I could yell and scream, but at the end of the day, I didn’t get the support that I hoped I’d get from management to correct what was a really bad problem.”
